News - IIMC professors can not criticize the government

After Delhi University, it's time for Indian Institute of Mass Communication to adopt the Central Civil Services Conduct rules.. According to the media school under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, the Central Civil Services Conduct (CCS) rules, which prohibit criticism of the government, will now be applicable to the faculty of the IIMC. This decision was taken at a recently held meeting of the Executive Council of the institute.

Conditions of CCS Rules:

One of the clauses of the CCS Rules bars government servants from making any statement of fact or opinion which has the effect of an "adverse criticism of any current or recent policy or action" of the Central government or a state government. Meanwhile, the state-run institute had set up a committee to deliberate on the issue and it has recommended that wherever IIMC bylaws are silent, CCS rules should apply.

Imposing CCS rules would be an "assault on academic freedom":

Moreover, a number of teachers, who did not wish to come on record, slammed the authority for going ahead with its plan despite their contention that imposing CCS rules would be an "assault on academic freedom". "The Executive Council today unanimously adopted our proposal. This is to end any ambiguity or discretion in the administration of justice, and is aimed at greater transparency. It is being implemented in several universities including the Delhi University," the IIMC Director-General K G Suresh told PTI.
