"It was an unproductive and meaningless form of bureaucratic work for teachers," she said.

"They can be on fieldwork or in conferences/seminars etc, and expecting them to drop in everyday is ridiculous, especially when every month Research Supervisors and Chairpersons sign on fellowship forms certifying their presence and satisfactory progress," Kidwai said.
