A Parliamentary Panel has asked the Ministry of Human resource and Development (MHRD) to llok into the faculty crunch in universities across states.
The panel reports that in 24 central universities across 16 states, on an average 35 per cent of teaching posts are lying vacant.
"Either our young students are not attracted towards the teaching profession or the recruitment process is a prolonged one and involves too many procedural formalities," the panel says.
Banaras Hindu University has 848 posts vacant, and Allahabad University has 285 vacant posts.
A Parliamentary Panel seems to be happy with 12th National Mission on Teachers and Training plan, and lauded it as a step in right direction.
