The Governor said that the private universities coming to the State should have students’ and public interest supreme in their mind, a press release stated. The construction work is the basic ingredient of starting any institution. Proper playground, library, laboratories, student amenities like hostels, etc. and the conveniences and amenities for the girl students should be 100% in place and on the ground before the admissions are opened. The private universities must ensure this in public interest, he said. The Governor also mentioned that most of the private universities in the State do not have proper infrastructure, playfields, students’ extra curriculum facilities, befitting libraries and laboratories.
The appointment of permanent faculty and their proper remuneration for ensuring the qualitative standard of the faculty fall far too short of norms. The Governor, therefore, suggested that the private universities, running in Arunachal Pradesh, in such cases, must ensure that full, proper and dignified infrastructure is in place before the commencement of the students’ admission. He also emphasized that proper, well qualified, permanent faculty are appointed and present before starting a private university.
The Governor said that many complaints are being received from the general public regarding the bad performance of many private universities in our State and this must be rectified by the concerned private universities. He said that the private universities already functioning or planning to open in Arunachal Pradesh should have all requisite wherewithal of staff, faculty, materials, structures, and ground of optimum standard before starting the admission of the students.
