The UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar launched the CU-Chayan Portal on 2nd May 2023. The launch of the CU-Chayan Portal is a significant step towards simplifying the recruitment process for faculty posts in universities. The platform is aimed to make it easier for candidates to apply for faculty positions, including professor and assistant professor, in Central Universities across India.
What is CU- Chayan Portal
On May 02, 2023, the Chairman of UGC unveiled CU-Chayan, a unified recruitment portal meticulously designed and developed to cater specifically to faculty recruitment in Central Universities. This portal serves as a user-friendly platform that addresses the requirements of all stakeholders involved in the recruitment process. UGC’s primary aim in developing this portal is to establish an enabling environment for both central universities and applicants. With CU-Chayan, central universities retain complete autonomy over every stage of the recruitment process, aligning with their existing practices.
Features of CU-Chayan Portal
The list of vacancies, advertisements, and job openings in all Central Universities will be released on the CU- Chayan Portal. The main objective of the CU- Chayan is to make the recruitment process completely online, from application to screening, with alerts to all users of the portal. Applicants can also search for jobs using various filters, such as University Name, Location, Designation, Category, Subject, Employment Type, Experience, Education Level, etc. Interested candidates can access the portal through the official website – curec.samarth.ac.in.

- Real-time tracking of the application

Benefits of CU Chayan
CU Chayan provides a single applicant login for applying to any/all Central Universities, real-time tracking of applications, a personal dashboard for each applicant, and an admin dashboard for each University/Department. All the Communication will be conducted through email, and there will be an online feedback/reference system for applicants to encourage fast response. The portal will also offer monitoring and real-time analysis of applications in a much faster way.
CU-Chayan is user-friendly and accessible, with a simple and intuitive interface that anyone can use, regardless of their technical expertise. The platform has several features that make it an ideal platform for recruitment, including its ability to reduce the time and resources required for recruitment, its transparent and fair selection process, and its valuable data that can be used to improve the recruitment process in the future.
UGC has announced that all ongoing recruitment processes will continue without using this portal. However, all future recruitments will be conducted through the CU-Chayan Portal only. All universities will be required to deactivate their recruitment portals. Central Universities will continue to give short notices in newspapers, and detailed notifications will be released on the CU- Chayan portal.
CU- Chayan is an excellent initiative towards a more efficient, transparent, and standardized recruitment process for faculty posts in Central Universities and Higher Education Institutions across India. This platform is expected to streamline the recruitment process and make it easier for both employers and job seekers to connect with each other.
