Jan 2, 2015 06:16 IST

    Massive vacancies in Government Colleges has degraded the performance of students in the PU Board Examinations 2014. This is the first time in 15 years, that the wide pass percentage in the board examinations managed to touch 60%.

    Adding more insight to this graving situation, Thimmaiah Purle, President of the Karnataka State PU College Lecturers' Association, said that in order to make up for the shortage of lecturers a PU college in Shahapur taluk of Gulbarga district was working without an English lecturer for 12 years. He further added that in one of the colleges in Gangavati taluk of Koppal students from different sections were packed in a single room for combined lectures.

    However PU department officials have a different story to tell. In response to the allegations regarding staff shortage and its subsequent impact on the performance of the students, V K Nagaraj, joint director (Education) said that in order to complete the syllabus, there is provision of guest lectureship and in case of remote areas the Principals of the colleges are permitted to hire people from local areas.

    Counterfeiting which, Purle remarked that guest lectureship is limited to urban areas only; none of the lecturers want to serve at rural areas.
