Appoint Vice-Chancellors To All State Universities In A Month: YS Jagan Instructs Officials   

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy - Sakshi Post

Amaravati: Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy ordered officials to appoint vice-chancellors to the universities in the State within 30 days after constituting search committees at the earliest. He said the selection of vice-chancellors should be carried out with utmost transparency, considering the eligibility and experience of the said persons.

YS Jagan took stock of the Education department in the State on Thursday by conducting a review meet in which Education Minister Adimulapu Suresh and senior officials participated.

All efforts would be made to strengthen the public universities including filling up of existing vacancies by the end of the year, he said and added that Central tribal University and Tribal Medical College would set up in Araku.

On fee reimbursement, he said the children belonging to poor and middle classes can afford to pursue higher education only if the scheme was seen with a realistic approach. He instructed officials to make efforts towards providing fee reimbursement for every three months as making it an annual affair would put students at lot of inconvenience.

"How can the colleges survive if fee reimbursement is given annually or for two years? Make efforts to provide it for every three months," is what he is believed to have told officials.

The Chief Minister offered suggestions as regards the modernisation of schools and upgrading their infrastructure, besides the measures required to strengthen the Intermediate and Degree colleges.

Stating that the education will be the greatest asset one can give to the future generations, YS Jagan ordered officials to constitute a committee to upgrade the syllabus and textbooks in the schools. The changed curriculum should be enforced from the next academic year, he added.
