| | New Delhi

Human Resource Development (HRD)  Minister   Prakash javadekar on  Monday informed the Lok Sabha  that  around 20 per cent posts in  41 Central universities are yet to be filled and  9,000 ad hoc posts in Delhi University  would be made permanent in one year.

 “Vacancies in higher education institutions is a serious problem. Around 20 per cent posts in Central universities are currently vacant,” he said during Question Hour.

 There are 41 Central universities under the purview of the HRD Ministry.

The Minister said  that students were not keen to take up teaching jobs, resulting in shortage of faculty members in higher education institutions.

 “The onus of filling up of posts lies in the Central universities which are autonomous bodies created under the respective Acts of the Parliament,” he said.

The Minister said  to meet the situation arising out of shortage of teachers in universities and the consequent vacant positions, the age of superannuation for teachers in Central educational institutions has already been enhanced to 65 years, Javadekar said. He said retired teacher could also be re-employed  beyond the age of 65 years upto 70 years,”  said Javadekar.

He said 9,000 adhoc posts in Delhi university would be made permanent in one year’s time.
