Over 4,300 teaching posts are vacant in Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) across the country, the Parliament was informed on Wednesday.

Union Minister of State for Education Subhas Sarkar gave the information in response to a written question in Rajya Sabha.

The maximum vacant faculty positions are in IIT Kharagpur (815) followed by IIT Bombay (532), IIT Dhanbad (447), IIT Madras (396), IIT Kanpur (351), IIT Roorkee (296) and IIT BHU (289).

He said IIT Delhi has 73 vacant faculty positions, IIT Bhubhaneshwar (115), IIT Gandhinagar (45), IIT Hyderabad (132), IIT Indore (81), IIT Jodhpur (65), IIT Mandi (73), IIT Patna (100), IIT Ropar (69), IIT Tirupati (18), IIT Palakkad (24), IIT Jammu (31), IIT Bhillai (43), IIT Goa (40) and IIT Dharwad (39).

”The government has implemented 10 percent reservation for admission of students under EWS category without any reduction in the number of seats available to GEN, SC, ST and OBC categories by increasing the student strength by 25 percent. Accordingly, requirement of faculty has increased in IITs,” Sarkar said. He said the faculty recruitment takes time since it involves a number of stages in the process. ”Ministry of Education has requested all IITs to fill up the vacancies in faculty cadre through special recruitment drive in mission mode. ”Further, IIMs also follow rolling advertisement system for applications for the faculty positions and have also been asked to fill vacancies in a mission mode,” he added.
