BHADRAK:  Bhadrak Autonomous College celebrated its 67th foundation day on Sunday, but the premier educational institution is grappling with several problems.

Inadequate teaching staff coupled with a large number of vacancies in non-teaching posts and poor infrastructure have virtually doomed education in Bhadrak Autonomous College.

Inadequate teaching staff has been reflecting on the quality of education.

According to sources, Commerce Plus Two stream has no teacher for the last five years while over 58 lecturer posts in other streams are lying vacant since long.

Absence of non-teaching staff is yet another crisis that the students have been facing for long. Over 40 per cent non-teaching posts are vacant. Students moving in the corridors during class hours for official works add to the chaos that the college has been passing through for the past some years. “Absence of adequate staff to handle such disturbances subsequently take the shape of riot-like situation between the staff and students,” alleged a student leader.

Staff shortage apart, the college infrastructure too cries for attention.

After a shower, the entire campus gets waterlogged in the absence of proper drainage facilities. The classrooms too leak while some are in a precarious condition and may collapse anytime.

The college campus is open to outsiders during daytime resulting in unwanted scuffle between them and the students, while after sunset it functions as a hideout for anti-social elements.

The century-old college is without a boundary wall. The students, particularly girls, are the worst sufferers.

“Our complaint to the college authorities went unheard and we fear to go to police,” said a Plus Three student, requesting anonymity.

College Principal Pradipta Swain said steps were being taken to address the issues and the Higher Education Department apprised about the problems.
