The state government has already filled up about 1,200 out of 4,084 college teachers’ posts that a high powered committee had recommended, but the process had to be stopped mid-way due to COVID-19, Uday Samant told the press. He also added that the recruitment process will begin again soon. Speaking about this topic, Samant said that a long-standing demand of contractual teachers in government-aided colleges is that they be paid similarly, or on par with the teachers in private universities. This request from the contractual teachers will be fulfilled soon.
Regarding the issue of reopening physical classes in colleges, Samant said that colleges cannot open in the current situation and online classes will have to continue for now. He also added that the state disaster management authority will review the situation and decide on a course of action to begin in-person classes in the future. Many schools and colleges around the country had chosen to cancel or postpone their exams due to the serious COVID-19 conditions. Stay tuned for more MHT CET news and education updates.
