Bhopal:  Professors will be recruited soon and justice will be done with the candidates selected through PSC. This was reiterated by Higher Education Minister Jitu Patwari on Monday.

Higher Education Department is short of about 5,000 professors, out of which more than 2,300 candidates were selected through PSC conducted in 2017.

But they have not been issued appointment letters despite completing all formalities after being selected through written exam conducted by the PSC.

Their documents have been verified and they were asked to submit No Objection Certificate (NOC) from their current place of working. Several candidates have resigned from their existing jobs, lost their monthly income and have still been waiting for appointment letters.

Patwari said that apart from PSC selected candidates, department will also be recruiting 2,500 more professors within three months.

Higher Education Department has received funds from the World Bank for upgrading infrastructure and facilities for colleges across the state. One of the important condition for release of funds include appropriate student-teacher ratio. The department has more than 12,000 approved posts for professors and assistant professors.

The department has been hiring teachers on contract basis against the vacant posts until now. Replying to a question, Patwari said that issue of PSC selected candidates is being considered seriously and legal experts are meeting to find out amicable solution.
