Udai Samant State’s Minister of Higher and Technical Education said on Sunday that the admission process for non-professional courses will begin after the announcement of the results of the 12th grade in Maharashtra.
He said there are options to either conduct a CET for admission to non-technical courses or conduct an admission process based on grade 12 grades. “The XII exams have been canceled and only after the results are announced will we decide whether or not to conduct a CET,” he added.
Samant, who spoke to groups of teachers who protested university recruits, said the state government had decided to fill 4,074 positions and the process for 1,600 had already been completed. The process of filling the remaining posts has been suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but the file has been processed and, after approval by Deputy Chief Minister and Finance Minister Ajit Pavar, a government decree will be adopted shortly, he said.
He said that the process of filling 700-750 vacancies has also begun, and a survey will also be conducted to identify vacant teaching positions as of 2020. “The hourly pay for undergraduate teachers has been increased. From ₹500 to ₹615, and from ₹150 to ₹250 for practitioners.
For graduate students (PG), it has been increased to ₹750 off ₹600, but it would be ₹300 instead of ₹250 for those conducting workshops. The government will also fill 121 vacant librarians soon, ”Samant said.
