West Bengal University Officers' Association

The West Bengal University Officers Association ( WBUOA ) is the apex body of all University Officers in regular service in sanctioned posts in the state-aided Universities in West Bengal. The Association also acts like a Federation of the Associations of Officers of the individual Universities in West Bengal which are affiliates and constituents of the parent body. The WBUOA has the mandate to safeguard the legitimate service interests of its members, protect them from injustice and discrimination from any corner whatsoever and take adequate steps for professional development of the University Officers to enable each to contribute more for growth of their respective institutions.  

The West Bengal University Officers Association ( WBUOA )is a constituent of the All India Federation of University Officers Associations ( AIFUOA ). In fact the AIFUOA was established in 1998 as the sole platform of all the University Officers engaged in service in the Indian Universities, whether state-aided or centrally funded, with active initiative, protracted dialogues and effective leadership performed by WBUOA.

The WBUOA was established on 16th July,1976. Initially, the Supervisory Staff of the University of Calcutta were members of the Association but since 1979, only the University Officers appointed in regular posts are members of WBUOA.

The Association has taken watershed strides and achieved historic successes by persuading the MHRD and UGC to include the University Officers across the country within the terms of reference of the UGC Pay Committees since 1973. As a result of sustained efforts of WBUOA, the UGC Pay Scales at par with University Teachers had been extended to the University Officers in 1973, 1986, 1996 and in 2006. At the same time, the Career Advancement Scheme ( CAS ) of the University Officers more or less at par with University Teachers were sanctioned by the Govt. of West Bengal as an outcome of sustained struggle of the Association. The Association has also succeeded to arrange issue of Govt. Order on minimum qualifications for appointment in posts of Officers at par with those of the Teachers in equivalent pay scale posts.  These steps demonstrate the dedication of WBUOA to ensure not only the legitimate rights of the Officers but their duties and professional obligations with equal emphasis. 

The WBUOA is a melting pot of skills, expertise, experience, innovation, ideas and commitment in academic administration  both in technical disciplines and non-technical areas of general governance taking into account the fact that a considerable number of Officers are employed in Science & Technology Departments as well as in Service Centres in our Universities. We are focussed on free flow of ideas of our members and other experts in higher education as is evidenced by large number of Seminars/ Conferences / Workshops being organised by WBUOA round the year besides those hosted by the affiliating Units in respective Universities. All these efforts multiply to generate more skills, expertise, broadened vision and professionalism among the members.
