Calling Attention


Chandigarh: Haryana Cooperation Minister, Dr. Banwari Lal informed that there is neither any policy nor proposal regarding Online Transfer for State University as well as Central University of Haryana.

                Also, there is no proposal regarding inclusion of PGIMS Rohtak / Pt. B.D Sharma University of Health Sciences, Rohtak in online transfer policy across Medical Colleges in the State Government and common cadre of Group A, B, C, D of teaching and non – teaching employees.

                This was said by Cooperation Minister, Dr. Banwari Lal while responding to a Calling Attention Motion in Haryana Vidhan Sabha.

                He informed that the State Universities are autonomous bodies and are governed by the provisions of their respective Acts. These Acts provide adequate autonomy in the matters of academics to the Universities and the State Government provides autonomy to State Universities in all academic matters. Universities are constantly being encouraged by the State Government and the Department of Higher Education to provide autonomy and make them independent in their functioning and administrative matters. He elaborated that the significant enhancement in the Budget for Higher Education in the last five years reflects the State Government’s commitment towards revamping the higher education scenario in Haryana.

                The Cooperation Minister said that each University has its own cadre and transfers cannot be done to any other institution i.e. another University. However, a uniform HRMS system has been introduced by the State Government to capture the detailed data of all the employees of the State Universities. This Human Resource Management System is a dynamic portal on which the complete life cycle of an employee is available. This portal is regularly updated and has brought about a systematic and progressive change in the working of all the Departments. This is a big step of the Government in the direction of making the State Universities completely digital.

                Dr. Banwari Lal informed that a letter was issued by the State Government on July 26, 2021 to all the Administrative Secretaries / Heads of the Departments / Managing Directors/ Boards / Corporations and is not addressed to any University in the State or any Central University located in the State. However, this letter is meant to facilitate statewide data on HRMS portal for all State funded public institutions and State Government which has been developed to identify and list a comprehensive Human Resource Management Plan.

                The Cooperation Minister said a training of Nodal Officers of Human Resources Management System (HRMS) of selected Universities was scheduled with this letter, for necessary information on webpage of Human Resources Management System by NIC. This training was primarily about the procedure for updation of data of employees on Human Resources Management System (HRMS) Portal.

He said that the State Universities are established by Statutes made by the Vidhan Sabha and funded by the State Government and are governed by the provisions of their respective Acts. These Acts provide adequate autonomy in the matters of academics to the Universities and the State Government provides autonomy to the State Universities in all academics matters.
