Shortage of quality faculty a matter for concern: Sibal

HRD Minister Kapil Sibal today stressed the need for improving service condition of teachers to attract best minds 

Mumbai: Maharashtra students pursuing polytechnic courses would take some of their lessons in virtual classrooms from the current academic year. The decision in this regard has been taken by the State government to overcome shortage of faculties in the stream.


"We are starting the virtual classes from this academic year which would enable two or more classes to learn simultaneously," Higher and Technical Education Minister, Rajesh Tope told PTI.


"The students can learn through a facility like video conferencing with the teacher", he added.

The Government is also planning to make the facility available for Industrial Training Institute (ITI), if needed, Tope said.


The Government would soon make available instrumental set up to the colleges to start the courses immediately, he said.

There are over 100 polytechnic colleges across the state.


"The virtual classroom has been initiated considering shortage of teachers for the polytechnic courses," the minister said.

Recruitment of the faculties is done through Maharashtra Public Service Commissions (MPSC) which takes long time to fill the vacancies, he said.
