The state department of collegiate education has decided to distribute the work load between government and private aided colleges faculties. Accordingly, over 250 teachers working with private aided college in Bangalore have been redeployed to various colleges.
The department issued an order along with the list of lecturers redeployed. “In some of the private aided colleges, the work load was very less and we had to redeploy them to the colleges where there is a need,” said Bhagyalakshmi, additional director of the department. Though the teachers are working with private aided colleges, they receive UGC-level salary. So, it is the department’s decision to use them where there is a dearth of faculty and distribute the work load, said another senior official.
The department can call them back and deploy them to another college whenever there is a need. “We could call them back as they are working with aided colleges. We know that we receive protests from many, but we have done this according to the rule and the work load,” the official said.
