“It is not just about teaching positions that are lying vacant across institutions that are under the control of the Central government. The RTI findings have also revealed that a large number of non-teaching posts are also vacant. It is beyond my understanding as to why these vacancies are not being filled in a time-bound manner. On the one hand, we are talking about the prevailing unemployment in our country, and on the other, posts of teachers and other administrative staff are lying vacant in central schools and various other institutions,” Gaurav stated.
