Staff crunch stares at Deogarh College

Following is a report from TNIE:

There have been many agitations over vacancies in the Deogarh College. Teachers, however, are yet to be posted  much to the disappointment of the students.

Last year on August 4, students locked the main gate of the Deogarh College demanding filling up of vacant teacher posts. On August 8, they called for a 12-hour Deogarh bandh which received widespread support.

Subsequently, they unlocked the main gate after the then Regional Director, Higher Education, Bijay Laxmi Mishra promised that teachers from neighbouring colleges would be deputed to the College till a permanent arrangement is made.

But with no development since then, students are threatening to hit the streets again. More than half of the sanctioned posts in the College are lying vacant since long.

Set up in 1963, Deogarh College – the oldest and the only college in the district offering science streams – has a sanctioned strength of 40 teachers. At present, there are only 18.

While two sanctioned teacher posts in Mathematics are lying vacant since March 2010, Chemistry, Zoology, History, Political Science and Logic departments have one teacher each. Similarly, departments of Physics, Botany, English, Economics and Education have two teachers each.

Only Odia department has three faculty members.

The College has about 800 students on rolls. Principal Chittaranjan Das said the authorities had been apprised of the situation.

    Vacancy of Teacher in schools, colleges, university, research institutes are to be filledup at the earliest to provide education to the students. In the backward regions like western odisha/KBK regions/ tribal belts it should be the onerous duty of the Government to fill up the teaching vcancies soon. Recently, Govt. of Tamilnadu has declared special incentives to the students preparing for Indian Civil Services Exam. Now, our Govt. atleast fill up all vacancies in the existing schools, colleges so that students get the basic education in their respective streams. Then only, they can dream for competitive exam.
