Published: 27/11/2017



The State government will convene a meeting of management societies of private educational institutions in December, to discuss several issues related to education development in North Karnataka and the issues faced by teachers and employees in educational institutions.

Primary Education Minister Tanveer Sait announced this at a meeting of private managements at the KLE centenary hall in Belagavi recently. He said that the government had already fulfilled most of the demands of the association. Among the demands fulfilled was bring employees of aided institutions under the Jyoti Sanjeevini Health Insurance Scheme, the Minister said.

Higher Education Minister Basavaraj Rayaraddi said that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had set a target of increasing the percentage of students getting higher education in the State to 40 from the State average of 28 now. In Hyderabad Karnataka districts, except Ballari, the percentage of enrolment in higher education had not reached even double-digit figures. “We will work towards increasing it,” he said.

He said that the State government was planning to name Gulbarga University after saint-poet Basaveshwara. It had sent a request to the Union government to rename the Central University of Karnataka after Ambedkar, he said.

Prabhakar Kore, Rajya Sabha member and KLE Society chairman, felt that successive governments at the Centre and State had neglected the fields of health and education. Among other things, this had led to closing of physical education institutions, he said. Basavaraj Horatti, chairman of the Federation of Managing Committees and Employees of Private Education Institutions, thanked the government for fulfilling the demands of private institutions and felicitated the two Ministers.
