HYDERABAD: Though the state government has ‘pompously’ announced waiver of full tuition fee for Intermediate students of government junior colleges, lack of adequate infrastructure and shortage of academic staff are resulting in deterioration of academic standards.

Following the announcement to waive off full tuition fee and provide textbooks to students, the enrolment has increased by 12,000 in the state.

However, many colleges are yet to begin teaching the syllabus. though three months have passed after the academic year began, due to government’s apathy to fill up vacancies and sanction new posts. Far worse, colleges are yet to receive ‘Academic Organiser’, because of which colleges are clueless about academic schedule.

According to an estimate, of the total number of 432 government junior colleges, around 220 do not have full-time principals. Similar is the case with lecturers.

The government has also asked the colleges not to appoint qualified teachers on contract basis, says Telangana Govt Junior Lecturers Association president B Ramshetty.

Free-education notwithstanding, teachers fear, unless the issue of academic staff and infrastructure is sorted out, the government’s dream of getting good results will remain elusive.
