The Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), led by Ramesh Pokhriyal has jumped into action to fill up 50,000 vacancies for professors in universities and colleges across the nation as soon as possible, reports Livemint.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) which functions under the MHRD has asked the universities to fill up vacancies on a priority basis as shortage of faculty is affecting quality of teaching and learning environment in the higher educational institutions.
The UGC has already prepared the guidelines for recruitment of faculties in universities, colleges and institutions deemed to be universities outlining selection procedure and the time frame for recruitment.
The UGC has also asked the institutions to complete the entire process of recruitment within six months from the day they start the recruitment drive.
