NAGPUR: Here's some good news for Std XI students. With the new session to commence, the state education department has sanctioned 56 new junior colleges to be set up in Nagpur district.

These junior colleges will offer courses in commerce, arts and science streams. Presently, there are 180 junior colleges in the district. Twenty-five of these colleges will open in Nagpur city while the rest will be scattered over the district.

Of the new colleges, 48 will be arts colleges, 17 offering science course and 19 commerce colleges. The colleges will run courses in Hindi, Marathi, English and Urdu mediums. Sources said of the 58 colleges, many will get permission to offer courses in all three streams.

Sources said the education department (Nagpur division) had received 1,200 applications for setting up junior colleges in the division. Of the total, 400 applications were from Nagpur district alone.
Officials say the new colleges would be permanently unaided and would be in addition to another proposal by existing colleges to allow them to increase their division strength.

"The move is an effort to ensure admissions to all deserving students. A situation should not arise in which a student is deprived of higher studies due to the unavailability of seats or the lack of new colleges in the field.

Presently, we can accommodate all the students who have passed SSC in all aided and unaided arts, science and commerce colleges across the Nagpur division. With the addition of 56 more colleges the student intake will improve sharply," an official source said. Notably, this year the division had witnessed 1.45 lakh students clearing the SSC board examination.

Earlier, sources said, of the six districts in the division, Nagpur has highest number of junior colleges, 180, with a capacity of 1.48 lakh students. It is followed by Bhandara district with 91 junior colleges and 76,840 students. In Chandrapur district, there are 84 junior colleges with 92,457 students' intake capacity.

Likewise, in Gondia district, there are 78 colleges with the intake capacity of 69,810. In Wardha district there are 91 colleges, with a capacity to admit 72,735 students, while the most backward district-Gadchiroli has 57 colleges with the least capacity of 50,827.

Meanwhile, sources said the state education department is yet to release the lists of new sanctioned junior colleges in other districts of Vidarbha.
