Faculty positions at seven IITs are vacant in a range of 5-36%: CAG report

There were vacancies in faculty positions in seven IITs that ranged from 5% to 36%. According to a CAG report, this slowed down the growth of student enrollment. “Performance Audit of Setting up new Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT)” is the report’s title. It is for the 2014 to 2019 period.

Key Highlight:

  • A CAG report found that vacancies in seven IITs ranged from 5% to 36% in faculty positions. This meant that students could not overgrow, preventing the IITs from hiring more teachers.
  • New Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) were set up between 2014 and 2019. This report is called “Performance Audit of Setting up New IITs.”
  • It looked at eight schools: IIT Bhubaneswar, IIT Gandhinagar, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Indore, IIT Jodhpur, IIT Mandi, IIT Patna, IIT Ropar, and IIT Gandhinagar.
  • The audit panel said that the IITs should keep an eye on the number of faculty members and find suitable candidates to fill the gaps.
  • An enrollment shortfall in post-graduate (PG) programs was noted at all eight IITs, the report found.

After the IITs worked hard and hired more teachers every year, there were still vacancies in seven of the IITs that ranged from 5% to 36% of the faculty positions, making it difficult for the number of students to multiply.

New Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) were set up between 2014 and 2019. This report is about “Performance Audit of Setting up New IITs” for that time. It looked at eight schools: IIT Bhubaneswar, IIT Gandhinagar, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Indore, IIT Jodhpur, IIT Mandi, IIT Patna, and IIT Ropar, to name a few.

“Vacancies were found in PG and Ph.D. programs at all eight IITs,” the report said. This shows that a realistic assessment of student intake and an evaluation of these programs are needed to attract the right students.

“There can be a link between the number of students and how many faculty positions can be sanctioned. This means that for every 10 more students, the number of faculty positions can be sanctioned by 1. (1:10 ratio).

“Despite the efforts of the IITs and the rise in the number of faculty hired each year, there were vacancies in seven IITs that ranged from 5% to 36%. This made it hard for students to come in quickly. In the long run, the vacancies will affect the quality of education at these top schools because they will put more work on the teachers already there “:

The audit panel said that the IITs should keep an eye on the number of faculty members available and find people who are good enough to fill the positions.

The report said that people didn’t sign up for post-graduate (PG) programs at all eight IITs.

“Five IITs didn’t set a limit on how many students could take Ph.D. courses. The rest of the schools had a shortage of students taking these courses. IITs had vacancies in faculty positions, which would make it hard for IITs to provide high-quality education. In addition, the number of students from reserved groups who went to most IITs was meager.

“Also, it was found that all of the IITs got very little money from non-government sources to fund research projects. Thus, they were still relying on the government for money to pay for their research. A lot of different IITs filed and obtained a lot of patents, but none of them got any during the five-year period, which means that their research didn’t work out, “said the report
