Mumbai : Universities are ready to start classes in all higher education institutions and colleges in the state immediately. However, colleges cannot be started without the permission of the government. Students are also demanding that college classes be started immediately. Therefore, the vice-chancellors of all the universities in the state today demanded to the Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari that the universities in the state should be allowed to start classes immediately.
Many constitutional posts in the state’s universities are vacant, making it difficult to run the university administration. Therefore, the Vice-Chancellor also demanded that these posts be allowed to be filled. In this context, the Governor directed the Department of Higher and Technical Education to allow the government to fill the constitutional posts as soon as possible. The governor also said that an early decision should be taken to start student hostels.
Governor Koshyari was addressing a meeting of the vice-chancellors of all the universities in the state through video conference today. The meeting was attended by Om Prakash Gupta, Principal Secretary, Department of Higher and Technical Education and Vice Chancellors of all the 20 universities in the state. The meeting was organized by the Governor to review the current status of the annual audit of the universities as well as to start the actual classes of the universities for the academic session 2020-21, to review the vacant constitutional posts in the universities.

Addressing the meeting, the governor said, “It is learned from the newspaper that classes V to VIII have started today.” In such a case, not starting actual classes in colleges and universities seems inconsistent and contrary. Universities have already started their academic years and classes are also being conducted online. Now the Corona situation is coming under control. The governor said that universities should consider whether college classes can be started or run in shifts. The University Grants Commission has also given instructions on how to start colleges. Therefore, the university should take the initiative to start classes, the governor said. The Governor also directed all the universities in the state to conduct their audits regularly.
Some vice-chancellors pointed out to the governor that there were about 50 per cent vacancies for teachers and non-teaching staff in universities apart from constitutional posts. During the meeting, the Vice-Chancellors of each university presented information related to their respective universities to the Governor.
