With a significant number of ineligible teachers occupying posts in state's universities, the Himachal Pradesh Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Commission has decided to create a pool of qualified candidates to help institutions in recruitments.

After screening of documents of 16 private universities, the commission found that nearly 10-15 per cent faculty members were ineligible for their respective posts. It was found that faculty members did not fulfil UGC norms and some universities had not informed the commission regarding NET or Ph.D exemption.

Maj Gen Atul Kaushik (retd), Chairman, said during the screening of 12 universities earlier, 30-40% of the faculty was found ineligible. The erring institutions were told to replace ineligible faculty, he said.

"Lack of permanent teaching cadre is another area of concern. It has been decided that a pool of qualified teachers passed out from state universities would be created to help institutions recruit teachers with Ph.D and NET qualification," he said.

There are complaints of irregularities in some colleges. A committee has been constituted for inspection.
