Of the total Rs. 88 crore, Rs. 46 crore would be spent in the current fiscal on strengthening and upgrading of the colleges' infrastructure.
The balance amount had been earmarked for execution of alteration and additional civil works to be undertaken during the financial year 2014-15.
To overcome the acute shortage of teaching staff in government colleges, Badal directed principal secretary of higher eeducation to immediately initiate the process for recruitment of college teachers on regular basis against the vacant posts.
