Imphal, Aug 16:

Kangleipak Students’ Association released a press note on the state of the education system in Manipur. According to the release signed by Romen Soibamcha, HRD Secretary, KSA HQ, in order for the education being provided under the higher education system in the state to expand the horizon and present a better future prospect for the students, it has become necessary to set up a committee to oversee the implementation of the NATIONAL EDUCATION POLICY 2020 in the state at the earliest.

It also added that it  has become necessary to ascertain whether the colleges in Manipur are following the guidelines laid down by the UGC as to the teaching hours, Research and Academic contributions and Professional Development, Co-Curricular and Extension Activities etc. colleges functioning outside the RR and guidelines of the UGC need to be identified and categorized according to a state policy as a large number of colleges could not meet the parameters laid down by the NAAC such as lack of required number of teachers and inadequate teacher-student ratio thereby scoring low accreditation grades and losing out on funding by the UGC. The state government should take up steps to appoint the required number of teachers as well as provide the infrastructures for the colleges without any delay. Appointment of principal in charge for a large number of colleges and instead of a regular principal till their retirement reeks of corruption and a big factor for lack of accountability in these colleges, as according to the UGC guideline, regular principals are a appointed for five years, and if one wishes to continue beyond this term, then an interview is necessary for re-appointment as principal which is not the case in the state at present. The state government should stop this trend and appoint regular principals for the colleges on a rotation basis immediately.

Teachers of government colleges and aided colleges who failed to meet the qualification prescribed y the UGC should be given an opportunity to meet the requirements under a timeframe and those who still cannot meet the qualifications within the given timeframe should be dealt with under a policy, and also the state government should adopt the recommendations for the 7th pay commission for the teachers without any delay.

The above mentioned reasons are the main cause for the failure of the colleges in the state to be included in the top 200 list of colleges and universities of India as determined by the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India. The academic activities provided in the state is evidently lacking in depth and quality when compared with that of other states, and in order to make improvements, required parameters such as infrastructure, academic activities, research, faculties etc should be improved said the release.
