BALANGIR: If the State Government goes ahead with its plan of transferring government lecturers, who have spent six years in a college, Rajendra (autonomous) College in Balangir will be hit hard. 

In last decade the college got no replacement after a lecturer was transferred. At present, 17 out of 19 lecturers of the college have completed more than six years.  

As such the college is already reeling under acute staff shortage with only 30 percent lecturers of the sanctioned strength doing  duty at present. The citizens and guardians of students apprehend that implementation of six-year transfer plan will not only hit the teaching but also put a question mark on the very existence of the college.  

As per official sources, sanctioned teaching staff strength for Plus Three and PG classes is 64. As many as five departments of the college are running without a single staffer. As a result the college committee stopped admission to PG courses in Botany, Zoology and Chemistry this year. “Because of paucity of teaching staff, we stopped admission to these departments this year as per the decision of college committee,” said principal Satyabanta Bedbak. He said with only 19 staff members the teaching has already been hit and the situation will worsen if government’s six-year transfer plan is actuated.

Ever since the college was conferred autonomy in 2002, there has been gradual decline in number of teaching staff. “The premier institution, which has thrown up talents who have excelled in various fields, is hamstrung by staff shortage. This has been the trend for the last one decade but the local representatives never took up the issue with higher authorities,” rued Pramod Mishra, president of Koshal Kranti Dal. He said the college should be treated separately while implementing the proposed transfer plan. He warned of mass agitation if the State Government failed to act.

    Sorry state of affair, Rajendra college(Autonomous) has no lecture in English, geography and Hindi. A separate state is the only solution.

    Nabeen govt., please make Rajendra (autonomous) College Balangir a state University. It is a very very old college. I feel sad for Rajendra College Balalangir.
