The principal secretary Anand Bardhan has directed that higher education directorate should release recruitment advertisement to fill vacant posts of teachers in colleges located in remote areas. He gave the order while undertaking a video conferencing session with the Principals of government and aided colleges at National Informatics Centre (NIC) at state secretariat on Tuesday. The district nodal officers were also present in the meeting. Anand Bardhan gave direction to the directorate regarding recruitment of teachers after finding that in many colleges located in the mountainous and remote areas, many posts of teachers are vacant even after release of advertisements by the principals. The state government had recently authorised principals to appoint guest teachers on the vacant posts. In the meeting the principal secretary took information about teaching plan, status of syllabus completed, appointment of teachers, number of students, teaching with the help of Edusat and issue of network connectivity. He directed that groups of 10-20 students should be made in the Post Graduate (PG) Colleges and one mentor should be assigned to each group. He said that apart from textbooks, the library should also contain the reference books and books written by Nobel laureates. The libraries should also have books for the competitive examinations. Bardhan said that help of DTH based teaching should be taken to solve the problem of net connectivity in the colleges located in remote areas. He directed that state scholarship scheme should be devised for the toppers of every stream and a coaching scheme should be made to provide help to the students for appearing in the competitive examination. The principal secretary directed the officials of higher education directorate to prepare plan to develop inter disciplinary and soft skills of the students.
