He also said that new proposals would be introduced to raise the quality of education in institutes like GEC and GMC.

PORVORIM: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said that the government is in talks with IITs to come up with a better system to enhance the quality of higher education and to bring in a good teaching faculty.

He also said that new proposals would be introduced to raise the quality of education in institutes like the Goa Engineering College ( GEC), Farmagudi, and the Goa Medical College ( GMC), Bambolim.

Parrikar, who also holds the education portfolio, made the declaration while responding to points raised by members participating in the discussion on demands on Thursday.

He said the plan is to invite special professors to create an interest in subjects taught in engineering and medical colleges. But colleges should also put in more efforts to widen the wisdom of students.

As regards to granting an extension in the retirement age of teachers of higher education, he said it cannot be done for general teaching staff as even teachers who do not teach well will get the benefit. Granting an extension in the retirement age was being considered due to the high ratio vacancies.
As a way out, he said the extension in the retirement age could be granted, subject to a recommendation from the respective college. He said the proposal has been sent to the Goa University.

Referring to the demand for increasing seats of engineering and medical colleges, he said it was during his tenure that seats of both the engineering colleges in the state had increased from 430 to 900.
