Decline of education and research in private universities

BATHINDA: Educational institutions are very important for development of any nation but mushroom growth of private colleges and universities run by education mafia are instrumental to decline the standard of education and research. The government has handed over education in private hands without taking into consideration that it can adversely affect the standard of education and research.

They take the students from graduation to Ph.D. by making the admission process very easy for them. Entrance exams(if any) are mockery. Passing of matriculation exam is somewhat difficult than to obtain PhD degree from universities run by education mafia. They don’t care about teaching rules and regulations and are creating an army of unethical and incompetent youth just to get money from these students.

Most of the private universities have employed sub standard teachers on very low salary. Some of these teachers are not qualified even to teach in school but education mafia has employed such teachers for higher education as university teachers who are spoiling future of students .UGC has clearly mentioned to  give a minimum pay scale of 21600 to every teacher and as per educational qualification a person must have completed PhD or he/she must be net qualified, but facts are far away from assumptions and these teachers are working as daily wage laborers because they get very less salary and can be removed from the job without any notice.

Some universities are running prestigious courses such as Law, Engineering, Pharmacy, etc with the complicity of these teachers.  Economically, politically and legally these education Mafia are so powerful that they manage to come out of the trap of complex judicial system and rules and regulations of controlling agencies such as UGC, BCI, MCI, ICT etc by their political approach, use of money, and by employing efficient and cunning lawyers. Top officials of government and government  agencies seems to have complicity with them because it is a matter of surprise and doubt that how these institutions defy the serious issue of salary and qualification of teachers because these agencies can easily detect these simple issues. Salary and qualification are fundamental issues and are directly related with each other. An efficient teacher with higher qualification will definitely demand higher salary and less salary can attract only inefficient and substandard teachers.

 

Educational mafia is depleting the standard of education and research which can be easily examined after minute reading of Ph.D. theses of these universities uploaded on Shodganga. Everyone know about open secret being played by education mafia, even then how they manage to handle such anti social issues openly is a matter of investigation. The government, political parties, NGO’s and other organizations working for the betterment of society must do something to curb this fort of education mafia.
