Plea to fill vacancies in Government colleges

By Our Staff Reporter

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM DEC. 28. The Association of Kerala Government College Teachers (AKGCT) has demanded that the vacancies of teachers in the Government colleges in the State be filled without any further delay.

The State working committee of the Association at its meeting held here, observed that there were more than 400 such vacancies as on date. With the retirement of around 200 teachers by the end of the current academic year, the functioning of the colleges would be badly affected, the Association maintained.

The meeting questioned the State Government's claim that the ban on recruitment had been withdrawn with effect from December 1, pointing out that it was still mandatory for the heads of departments to seek the approval of the Department of Finance to report the vacancies to the Kerala Public Service Commission.

As far as the Government colleges were concerned, the dearth of teaching staff would adversely affect the academic activity. The semester system would be sabotaged. Thousands of adequately qualified men and women, possessing doctoral and post-graduate degrees and waiting for appointment for long, would be denied their opportunities, the AKGCT said.
