Earlier this year, the education ministry informed the Lok Sabha that over 14,600 faculty were lying vacant in Central Higher Education Institutions (CHEIs). 

In a written reply to the Lok Sabha earlier in February this year, Union Minister of Education for State Subhas Sarkar informed that there were over 14, 600 faculty vacancies in HEIs under the ministry back then, as reported by PTI. The minister was further reported as saying that the ministry had directed all central higher education institutions to fill up the vacancies in a mission mode.

The institutions are taking measures to address faculty shortage in order to ensure that studies of students are not affected, “which inter-alia, include engaging research scholars, contract, re-employed, adjunct and visiting faculty”, Sarkar was reported as saying.
