BPSC To Appoint 3000 Lecturers

The Bihar government has decided to fill the ever growing vacancies of faculty in its eight universities through Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC). There has been no appointment of teachers for over nine years. At present there are 3395 vacancies in the universities which are causing great handicaps in carrying out the academic activities.

To facilitate the appointments, an amendment in the Bihar State Universities Act will be affected to pave the way for the appointment through BPSC. The education department has already prepared the draft which is to be sent to the cabinet for approval.

The universities having large vacancies are Magadh University (650), BRA Bihar University (600), L N Mithila University (550), Tilka Manjhi University (425), J P University (380), Veer Kuer Singh University (360), B N Mandal University (230) and Patna University (200).

Earlier an amendment bill had been introduced which had proposed constitution of a University Commission but it was turned down governor Devanand Konwar, who is also chancellor of the state universities, saying it was a finance bill. After that the government decided to go for new appointments through the BPSC. “We hope to make the appointments before the start of next academic session in 2013,” said education department principal secretary Amarjeet Sinha. The proposal after the approval of education minister P K Shahi has been referred to the law department.

Welcoming the government move former chief secretary and ex vice chancellor of Nalanda Open University V S Dubey said this system of appointment of university teachers through public service commission is in place. “I had recommended this system in 2006,” said Dubey who had been made chairman of reforms commission.

Another ex VC and retired IAS officer I C Kumar said this will be a right decision and redcalled that earlier also college and university teachers were being appointed through BPSC. “The appointments made by the BPSC will end the controversy,” he added.
