VTU Belagavi announces changes in its working schedule
Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) has announced a change in the working schedule of its various departments, including its head office and affiliated colleges.
The new schedule will come into effect from 01-03-2023 and will apply to all the departments under the ambit of VTU, including the Head Office in Belagavi, Regional Offices in Belagavi, Bengaluru, Kalaburagi, and Mysuru, Extension Centers at Mangaluru, Skill Development Centers at Dandeli and Talkal, PG Centers at Belagavi, Kalaburagi, Muddenahalli, and Mysuru, Constituent College – UBDTCE, Davanagere, all affiliated and autonomous engineering colleges, and School of Architecture.
The decision to change the working schedule was taken after receiving requests from affiliated colleges. The university aims to improve the efficiency and productivity of its staff by ensuring that the working days align with the needs of its stakeholders.
As per the decision taken in the 171 Executive Council Meeting held on 23-02-2023, the VTU (university) has declared a holiday on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month, while the remaining Saturdays will be full working days.
1st & 3rd Saturday: Holidays.
2nd & 4th Saturday: Full Working Days.
(In a regular month)
While the holiday on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays will be welcomed by staff and students alike, the reduction of casual leaves from 15 to 10 days for staff members working at Skill Development Centers at Dandeli and Talkal, PG Centers at Belagavi, Kalaburagi, Muddenahalli, Mysuru and Constituent College – UBDTCE, Davanagere may cause some concern among employees. However, the university has not given any specific reason for this decision.
The circular issued by the university requests all the concerned heads of sections to bring this change in the working schedule to the notice of staff members. It remains to be seen how this decision will affect the functioning of the university and its affiliated colleges. Students and faculty members will need to adjust their schedules accordingly to accommodate the new working hours.
VTU is one of the premier technical universities in India, established in 1998 to provide engineering education at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The university has more than 250 affiliated colleges and is known for its academic excellence and research-oriented approach.
The change in the working schedule announced by VTU is a significant development that will impact the university’s operations and its stakeholders. While the holiday on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays will provide some relief to staff and students, the reduction in casual leaves may cause some anxiety among employees. Nevertheless, the university’s decision to align its working days with the needs of its stakeholders is a positive step towards improving its efficiency and productivity.
