Kolhan University seeks report on requirement of teachers in colleges


Jamshedpur : Colleges facing shortage of teachers under Kolhan University will soon witness new appointments.

R.P.P. Singh, vice-chancellor, Kolhan University organised a meeting to discuss the sanctioned post, need of post creation for both teaching and non-teaching staff to ensure regular education for students in all 20 constituent colleges.

The authorities have been asked colleges to furnish details on the number of students per department, total number of posts sanctioned, requirement of teachers if any and total number of students in a college.

The university will further send to the state human resource development department so that it can appoint teachers and sanction posts in departments. The last appointment of teachers was done in 2008.

” The Government is geared up to appoint new teachers. We are hopeful that the recruitment of teachers will benefit the students. We have asked colleges to provide details which can be sent to the HRD department. We hope that things will take a right course and education will be an important factor for the government this year,” said Singh.

According to Singh, there are 70 per cent shortage of teachers across colleges of Kolhan University. Most of the colleges here are dependent on guest faculty who gets a basic honorarium of Rs 200 per class. Therefore, the varsity is eager to regularise the teachers and if necessary posts will also be created keeping in mind the number of students.

The condition in colleges is such that somewhere there are hardly any non-teaching staff and somewehere there are more than the sanctioned posts. So, we are also trying to distribute manpower equally. Given the excessive deficit of the teaching faculty in the remote colleges the university has planned to depute the trainee teachers in the colleges located in the rural periphery of the division comprising three districts of Seraikela-Kharswan, East and West Singhbhum.

Colleges Principals and educationalists in city have expressed happiness over the move and expressed hopes that the scenario of higher education in the rural belt would improve. The university that was established in 2009 runs 35 colleges, which include 14 constituent colleges, eight affiliated colleges and two minority ones. The Jamshedpur Women’s College is the lone autonomous cradle of the university.
