The State government has sanctioned 729 teaching and 500 non-teaching posts in 50 new government degree colleges that will start this academic year.

While 24 of these colleges will be exclusively for women, the remaining 26 are general government first grade colleges. With this, the total number of government degree colleges will increase from 362 to 412. The post of principal has been created in each college and subject-wise posts for lecturers have been sanctioned.

Although recruitment can be made only after permission of the Finance Department, the Department of Collegiate Education (DCE) will have to depend on guest faculty to ensure academic activities are not affected, said Collegiate Education Director B L Bhagyalakshmi.

Even the posts of principals will be filled up on temporary basis, she said. “There are 193 vacancies for the posts of principals that we are unable to fill because of technical issues. For now, we will appoint senior teaching staff as in-charge principals,” Bhagyalakshmi said.

The Department has prepared a seniority list of more than 200 teaching staff that will be used to make temporary appointments to the posts of principals. “Earlier, in-charge appointments were made in a manner that caused problems. That is why a seniority list has been prepared as per the UGC regulations,” she explained.

The 26 new degree colleges that are to be started in places such as Dandeli, Sagar, Yelburga and Ayanur are expected to have arts, commerce, management and science courses to start with.

The 24 new women’s colleges will come up in Byrapura, Tumkur, Chitradurga and other places. “The women’s colleges are coming up in places where there is demand. As for the general colleges, we hope at least 75 per cent of seats will be filled up,” she said. Commerce stream, with 142 vacancies, bagged most number of sanctioned posts.
