HIGHER AND Technical Education Minister Tukojirao Pawar has directed higher education department officials to ensure that inspection of private colleges is completed before the beginning of the admission process for the academic session 2006-07, so that students do not face any difficulty on this front.
Speaking at a review meeting of the department on Tuesday, the minister said inspections should be made according to roster programme and should be completed between June 15 and 30. Inspections will mainly ensure infrastructure and staff facilities at private colleges.
Higher Education Department Principal secretary Dr Bhagirath Prasad and Commissioner S D Agrawal were present at the meeting.
The Minister also said inspection committees should have regional additional directors, representatives of collectors and principals from colleges in other districts. He said inspecting teams should ensure that private colleges were adhering to norms of the department and should recommend action against those found violating norms.
Going over to other issues, the Minister directed the department to expedite the process of establishing Sanskrit University in the State and to complete the process of filling up clear and promotional vacancies at the earliest.
Reviewing grants given to universities, the Minister said this should be rationalised and grants should be as per posts available. Also universities should be asked to submit details of expenditure of this grant, he said.
He also suggested that a separate meeting be organised for excellence institutes. The minister said policy should be formulated for setting up of law colleges as per directives of the Bar Council of India.
Dr Prasad mentioned the proposal for the Sanskrit University had already been prepared and sent out to the Law Department for advice. Similarly, proposal for fees fixation of B Ed Colleges has been sent to School Education Department for advice. S D Agrawal gave details of departmental activities, filling up of vacancies by promotion and the grants to universities.
