The UGC sanctioned 140 faculty positions for Central University of Karnataka (CUK) but CUK reportedly has filled only 40 positions. This data is officially available at UGC Website .If this position exists in a private college the college is de-recognized by University and UGC then why Dr Sandhu and NAAC and MHRD is failed to censure the Central University of Karnataka (CUK). with this kind of faculty shortages how can any body dream of making it world-class Central University.N.R. Shetty, Chancellor of the Central University of Karnataka (CUK), Kalaburagi, called upon the teaching and non-teaching staff to work together to make the university one among the top performing institutions in the world.
