In the absence of a regular Vice Chancellor in the Tripura Central University (TCU) , the university authority have started a retrenchment spree to get rid of temporary or contingent employees recruited on poor pay through outsourcing. This has exposed the total disregard for protecting and promoting the interests of human resources in the highest centre of learning in the state. The acting Vice Chancellor of the university , Dr N.P. Singh also is not empowered to deal with the issue positively. 
Recently the university authority have retrenched a large number of DRW, contingent and temporary employees on ground of resource constraints even as preparation is on to get rid of a number of such employees soon. Sources in the university said that retrenchment of such employees would not only hurt their livelihood but would also tell upon normal functioning of the university administration. Sources said that at a time of long lockdown spawned by the COVID crisis this retrenchment spree has created a deep fear psychosis among employees recruited through outsourcing and is affecting normal work of the university.
Expressing serious concern over the issue the University Employees Association (UEA) yesterday met in deputation with the Registrar of the university K.B.Jamatya and urged upon him to reconsider the decision to retrench the temporary and DRW employees at a time of lockdown and corona crisis. The UEA delegation comprising Sima Dasgupta, Aditi Chakraborty, Pranab Kumar Paul and Samarjit Reang, also pointed that over the past many years there has been no recruitment of non-teaching staff in the university and in this situation the DRW and contingent employees have done duties assigned to them with utmost sincerity. Having patiently listened to the points raised by the UEA the Registrar K.B. Jamatya accepted the authenticity of  the issues and raised and assured the delegation that he would take up the matter with the higher authority of the university.
