After separation of junior and degree colleges, the State Government is now planning to take more time to delink the colleges for their smooth bifurcation.
The teaching and nonteaching staffs would remain in the +3 colleges in phases and fresh recruitment would e made in the +2 colleges. The delinking process would take three to four years, said Higher Education Minister Arun Sahoo here on Thursday.
After attending a joint meeting of the School & Mass Education and Higher Education Department on the issue of separation of the +2 and +3 colleges, Sahoo said that there would be separate infrastructures for both +2 and +3 colleges.
However, the existing system operating in many composite colleges having both +2 and +3 teaching in one campus would continue till complete separation.
Even as there are composite colleges, the classes are being held separately, the Minister said.
Notably, the State Government has separated +2 courses from the Higher Education Department.
The bifurcation process was implemented in the 2016-17 academic session. While +2 came under the School and Mass Education Department, +3 continued to remain with the Higher Education Department.
