NFS; a tool of exclusion of students from marginalized communities, SCRAP IT


NFS (Not Found Suitable) has been used by the Savarna academicians of higher educational institutions to keep away eligible candidates belonging to marginalized communities in faculty appointments. Denying faculty positions by using the tool of NFS is a blatant violation of constitutionally guaranteed rights. Even after years of efforts to overcome, discrimination in the name of religion and caste remains a hard reality that rules the academic system in the country. There are numerous examples of naked violation of reservation principles by bypassing the reserved seats to the general category noting NFS in the respective category. Since the practice of NFS is used for turning over the interests of reservation and rights guaranteed by the constitution, the Fraternity movement demands scrapping the NFS system and reforming the appointment procedure at the earliest. Social justice in higher education must be ensured.
