TIWN July 25, 2019

AGARTALA, July 24 (TIWN): Even though State is applauded by the great achievement of Tripura University students in the academic the year 2018-19 as a total of 64 candidates from various departments (including Journalism, Commerce, Library Science, Sociology, Physics, Chemistry, Bengali, Geography, English and others) have cracked the NET/SET examinations conducted by University Grant Commission and North-East SLET Commission, but a big question mark remains on their careers as over thousands of NET/SET qualified youths left either unemployed or guest lecturer of Colleges for years after years. The previous CPI-M Govt had introduced guest lecturer posts in Tripura Colleges due to shortage of teachers but gradually guest lecturers became the backbone of the Colleges and professor/lecturer crisis have been hitting the Colleges quality education.High Education in Tripura is suffering from disability following 25 years of a constant Left regime. Even though a new Govt BJP has taken charge, but unemployment toll has hiked too high and already many are near to be overaged.

When state govt appointed thousands of guest lecturers in the past few years with the excuse of teachers crisis, in reality NET, SLET Qualified youths are not being appointed in Colleges, even though in 2017's ending TPSC called candidates at last following constant pressures from various sides.

Since many years, there was no  proper recruitment in Colleges and especially since last 5 years the NET, SLET qualified youths have been suffering the most. Maximum are bound to work as Guest Lecturers and after many protests also Govt remained in slumber. 

On the other side, the guest lecturers have demanded job security for them.

The guest lecturers placed their demands as :

1)     Permanent post of the lectureship  of all existing guest lecturers are to be fulfilled,

2)     Re-engagement of those who were excluded in the previous session instead of having several years of teaching experience as guest lecturers.
