Imphal, Feb 28:

A group of candidates who had appeared in the recruitment for 190 posts of Assistant Professors on contractual basis for the State Government colleges under the Department of Higher and Technical Education, urged the government to declare recruitment results at the earliest.
The candidates expressed that the State’s Education Minister, Th Basanta Kumar, in the ongoing Manipur Assembly session assured declaration of the results of various posts, including Assistant Professors, at Dhanamanjuri University. “Unfortunately, the Education Minister did not give any information concerning the recruitment of 190 Assistant Professor posts in State government colleges,” lament the candidates.
It is further stated that the applicants have been waiting for the recruitment examination results for almost one and a half years, and the recruitment has marred them from advancing their careers. The examination was conducted in September 2021.
A list of shortlisted candidates was uploaded on the official website of the Directorate of the University and Higher education on August 23, 2021, after the screening of academic credentials and suitability of the applied candidates strictly in compliance with UGC norms and criteria.
Accordingly, the interview for the posts began on September 3 and was completed on September 21, 2021. The department concerned issued a press release on June 23, 2022, informing that the recruitment process is near completion and has been referred to the personnel department to declare results. At the same time, there are reports of an acute shortage of teaching faculty in the higher education sector.
The new National Education Policy of 2020 also made it clear that adequate teaching faculty will improve the gross enrolment ratio in the higher education sector, thereby leading to overall socio-economic growth.
In the meantime, recruitment results of 1500 graduate teachers were declared by the Department of Education (S) recently. But, unfortunately, the recruitment process of the graduate teachers took place simultaneously with that of the assistant professors, which is still being kept pending, the statement added. The candidates drew the attention of the minister and the department concerned to declare the recruitment examination results as soon as possible.
