BAREILY: Union minister of state for human resource development (HRD) Mahendra Nath Pandey said on Saturday that there are nearly 8-10 lakh posts of teachers lying vacant in schools and higher educational institutions across the country. He said that the government is taking initiative to clear the backlog and is also inviting suggestions to update the education policy which has not been revised since 1976.
Pandey, who was in Bareilly to participate in an event organized by Akhil Bharatiya Brahmin Mahasabha, told TOI, "Though it is true that there is an acute shortage of teachers in the country, it has been created due to a long backlog of posts lying vacant over years and we are working to appoint more faculty members soon. We have identified that there is requirement of nearly 10 lakh teachers across the country in both schools and higher educational institutions."

10 lac vacancies..if you remove makeshift contractual teachers on contract.. the number would be 50 lacs or higher.. contractual teachers is the most dangerous concept .. these are doing more harm than good..

Hinting at a revamp of the education policy, Pandey said, "In our country, the education policy is not properly implemented as it was first made in 1962 and then it was revised in 1976. However, no successive government took the initiative to revise it in all these years. We are now inviting suggestions to introduce changes according to the current challenges and prepare a new education policy."
Asked about universities not being able to maintain quality due to rising number of affiliated colleges, which at times run into hundreds, Pandey said, "Fixing total number of affiliated colleges per university is in the agenda of both central and state governments. We are thinking about it."
The minister said that maintaining quality of higher education was his priority. "Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) scheme has been introduced to improve the standard of higher education in the country. Besides, we are working to connect out students with facilities offered at international levels through satellite. Our students will be able to learn latest techniques and they will be granted an additional 20% marks for this."
