A visiting faculty is a post for a period of a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 2 years. A retired university or college teaching staff or any other person who holds a good academic qualification and having good experience in the line can be appointed as visiting faculty. A teaching faculty of the same university after retirement can't be appointed as visiting faculty. A professor of another university can also be appointed as visiting professor of another university. The parent university has to give leave for this professor for that period without pay. The maximum age should be 70 years.
A visiting Fellow can also be appointed. But the tenure may be a minimum of a week and a maximum of 3 months.
Knowledge is power.
