VIJAYAWADA: To enhance the quality of education in colleges and universities in the State, the Government of Andhra Pradesh has decided to form a three-member committee ask it to submit a report by October 1. The committee will be tasked with identifying deficiencies in the higher education system.

At a review meeting held here Saturday on the state’s performance in higher education, chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu pulled up officials for not making interventions to bring results and efficiency in the system. He said performance of lecturers and every person in the system should be linked to the outcome.

Blaming the previous regime for the present state of affairs, he said last 10 years of inefficiency had brought down the quality of education system in the state and stressed the need for complete revamp of the system. He asked the officials of higher education to make every lecturer, principal, registrar and vice-chancellor accountable for the end result.

Emphasising upon the need for sensitising the staff, the CM asked the officials to fix accountability, set targets and evaluate their performance on a monthly basis and also on the results. “Set performance indicators and seek feedback from students,” he said to officials.

The CM wanted the performance of V-Cs and registrars also evaluated on periodic basis and asked the officials to initiate stringent action against underperforming VCs and Registrars.

He also suggested capacity-building workshops and training every three months and said he would personally seek feedback from lecturers and students through IVRS and compare it with reports on the performance of lecturers.

In regard to ragging in colleges and universities, the officials were directed to act tough and initiate stringent action against students found guilty of ragging HRD Minister Ganta Srinivas Rao, secretary (higher education) Sumita Dawra, commissioner (technical and collegiate education) Udayalakshmi, APSCHE chairman Venugopal Reddy and other officials were present.
