Govt panel for more autonomy to edu institutions
New Delhi: A government panel Monday favoured
giving more autonomy to central educational institutions to
help them recruit faculty at higher salary and spend money on
various projects without any hassle.
The Higher Education Roundtable, headed by HRD Minister
Kapil Sibal, today discussed the ideas and decided to set up a
sub-committee to consider the issue and suggest measures, a
HRD Ministry official said.
The roundtable, comprising experts like Hari Bhartia,
Survi Banerjee, Debasis Chaterjee and M S Ananth, also
discussed issues like introducing separate accounting
practices for educational institutions.
Experts felt that CEIs, which are autonomous
institutions, are not able to appoint any faculty or officials
without the permission of the ministry.
Besides, the appointments are made purely by government
rules which at times can become a deterrent in attracting good
faculty. They said the institutes should enjoy the power to
appoint faculty with higher salary packages.
Private bodies, which want to donate funds for
educational institutions, should be able to do so, experts
felt. They can start special chairs in institutions. Those
chairs can provide funds towards recruitment of faculty at
differential salary, the experts said.
This model will not add any financial burden on the
institutions or government but help them attract good faculty
who want better packages. This was one of the recommendations
of the National knowledge Commission.
The committee will submit its report in three months
after which it will go the Cabinet for consideration.
