Grant-in-aid educational institutions agreed to give up grant-in-aid status: Minister

Vijayawada, Sep 27 (UNI) Assuring that no injustice will be done to the contract lecturers, Minister for Education Adimulapu Suresh said that some grant-in-aid educational institutions had come forward to give up their grant-in-aid status by handing over the staff and a few institutions had also agreed to give their assets along with staff.
Addressing a press conference here on Monday, the minister stated that the government’s intention is to provide quality education to the students without laying any burden on their families. Although the welfare schemes like Amma Vodi, Vidya Deevena, Vasati Deevena are being provided even to those studying in grant-in-aid institutions, the enrollment was not increased and failed to deliver the results.
In regard to this, the government had set up a committee to study the situation and had given its report to the government. Based on the report, to address the issue Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has given three options to those institutions either to voluntarily withdraw from grant-in-aid benefits, or hand over the assets to the government or run them as private institutions. With this, out of the 133 degree colleges, 125 managements, almost 93 percent have come forward to hand over their grant-in-aid status and assign staff to the government. Additionally 5-7 institutions have voluntarily agreed to give their assets to the government along with staff.
