Hyderabad: The government was committed to regularising contract faculty working in the junior colleges. The process has come to a halt as some of the students of Osmania University went to the High Court. “As soon as the court direction comes, the contract faculty will be regularised,” said Deputy Chief Minister Kadiyam Srihari.
He told the Legislative Council on Wednesday that while 1,403 regular junior lecturers were discharging their duties in the Government Junior Colleges in the State, 3,687 contract lecturers were delivering their duties. The government had raised their honorarium from Rs 18,000 to Rs 27,000.
The previous government sanctioned 53 junior colleges without creating any infrastructure. The TRS government was now sanctioning regular posts. The file was with the Finance Department. The moment posts were sanctioned, recruitment process would be done through Public Service Commission, he assured.
Earlier, he thanked V Bhoopal Reddy (TRS) for spending Rs 2 crore from his pocket for providing facilities in the junior college at Ramchandrapuram. The Dy CM asked members to emulate Bhoopal Reddy and contribute money through their constituency development fund for education.
