Karnataka: Appointment of teachers to aided institutions approved. Hubli News – Times of India

Dharwad: The state government has withdrawn its June 2020 order in which recruitment for vacant posts was stopped Teacher’s and lectures in private aided schools and PU colleges. The order came as a result of the financial crisis caused by Covid-19.
The latest instruction issued by the Secretary (Education) on July 5 said that private aided managements can proceed with the process for the vacant posts till December 31, 2015. Legislative Council Speaker Basavaraj Horatti, MLC SV Shankaroor, Arun Shahpur and Congress member RM Kuberappa had urged the government to grant permission.
There are 850 vacancies in private institutes. The new directive cannot address the problems faced by private aided institutions as the permission to fill up the posts comes with a condition that the entire workload should be on the lecturer. In many PU colleges, especially in rural areas, there is only one division each for I and II PUC. The maximum number of students in a division is 80. In these circumstances, the lecturer will not have the full workload.
Earlier, the government allowed appointment of one lecturer for each subject irrespective of the workload and cited rider for only one other full time employee for the same subject. But now it has made full workload mandatory for the first post, and many colleges will struggle to meet this condition and will have to fight for the services of temporary teachers.
