Hyderabad: Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Kadiyam Srihari on Friday expressed his unhappiness over functioning of Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE).
Speaking at the inauguration of RUSA resource centre here on Friday, Srihari said there was a need for more coordination between TSCHE, Universities and Commissionerate of Collegiate Education. However, the three wings were working as different entities, he felt.
“TSCHE needs to play a greater role in higher education system but your presence is not seen. So, you have to improve your activity and functions,” he said. He asked the officials of TSCHE, Universities and Collegiate Education to meet once or twice a week to improve the standards of the higher education.
The Minister said the governments in the united Andhra Pradesh had neglected the higher. He said though the earlier government had sanctioned colleges, they had failed to give land, buildings, and infrastructure and faculty positions.
Srihari said out of 130 colleges only 52 colleges had National Assessment and Accreditation (NAAC) grades and rest of the colleges did not even have eligibility to for Accreditation. He instructed collegiate education to take steps to prepare colleges for NAAC grade.
The Minister lamented that enrolment in the degree colleges were not up to the mark. He asked the officials to take up special drive to increase enrolment in degree colleges.
“Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao took a decision to implement midday meal scheme in the government degree colleges. This scheme should be taken to the students during the special drive,” he instructed officials. He directed the officials to instruct all colleges to install biometric systems and CCTV cameras.
