More than 4,300 teaching posts are vacant in Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) across the country, parliament was informed on Wednesday.
Minister of State for Education Subhas Sarkar gave the information in response to a written inquiry 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 student admission under the EWS category without any reduction in the number of available seats for the GEN, SC, ST and OBC categories by increasing student strength by 25 percent. Accordingly, the need for faculty in IITs has increased,” Sarkar said. He said faculty recruitment takes time as it involves a number of stages in the process.

“The Ministry of Education has asked all IITs to fill the vacancies in the faculty cadre through a special recruitment campaign in mission mode.
“Further, IIMs also follow the rolling advertising system for applications for the faculty positions and have also been asked to fill vacancies in a mission mode,” he added.
