Can’t join protest while on duty, absence will be considered unauthorised: TISS issues circular to faculty and staff on anti-CAA protests

Earlier this week, anti-CAA protests were organised in Mumbai which saw participation from some of the on-duty staff and faculties of the TISS.

The Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS) in Mumbai has issued a notification to its faculties informing them that absence from duty on account of protests against the Government of India will be deemed as unauthorised leave. The circular from TISS has come at a time when anti-CAA protests have turned into riots.

Earlier this week, anti-CAA protests were organised in Mumbai which saw participation from some of the on-duty staff and faculties of the TISS.

Taking stern action against truancy exhibited by some faculties, the TISS administration released a notification for all staff and facilities stating that since the Institute is funded by the Government of India, the staff and faculty cannot join any kind of protests while on duty.

The circular further added that it is against the conduct rules and the absence from duty to join the protests will be treated as unauthorised. The circular was issued with the Director’s approval.

The protests against the passage of Citizenship Amendment Act intensified after Delhi Police took corrective action against the hoodlums at the Jamia Millia Islamia indulging in acts of arson and vandalism under the pretext of carrying out peaceful protests against the enactment of the Citizenship Law.

Scores of vehicles were torched, public property damaged and stones pelted at the police forces as a party of the protest organised at the Jamia Millia university.

Following the violence, the Delhi Police entered the Jamia Islamia Millia University to flush out violent hoodlums hiding inside the university. This triggered solidarity protests in some parts of the country, including Mumbai.
