After several complaints against B.Ed colleges in many districts of the state, the Department of Higher Education, Haryana, has decided to hold a meeting with the vice-chancellors of various universities in the state on Wednesday to deliberate upon the issue.
The meeting would be attended by vice-chancellors from various universities to which a number of B.Ed colleges are affiliated and would deliberate upon the formation of an inspection committee to visit these colleges.
“There have been several complaints in the past against these colleges. Several of them are not adhering to the guidelines and do not have an adequate infrastructure. Since they did not take No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Haryana government when they were set up, so the action has to be taken by the VCs,” said a senior official of the
The aim of the meeting is to draw a consensus on the constitution of the inspection committee, which will visit all the B.Ed colleges and review the adherence of norms.
Based on the decision of the committee, a decision would be taken on whether to order for closure of these colleges. The inspection would be carried out uniformly on set parameters which would be discussed in the meeting, including adequate faculty and infrastructure, number of students enrolled and vacant seats.
As per the rules followed, one has to directly seek permission from the regional office of All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) and National Council for Teachers’ Education (NCTE) to open a private college. Then, the state government and the affiliating university is required to submit its objections within 15 days to AICTE from the date of receipt of application.
