Management Council of Mumbai and Amravati University have taken a decision not to allow any new colleges for at least one year due to the current work load and vacancies.

Arvind Chaudhry, Director, Nagpur University Board of College and University Development ( BCUD) said they cannot stop application of colleges till Management Council was constituted. Once the council was constituted it had the ability to take decision to stop more colleges from emerging till the previous burden lessened.

The problem is Nagpur University is working with half the employees. Opening of new colleges will only add to the problem. Huge vacancies of faculties lies in engineering and MBA colleges, which has led to the closure of these colleges. Many colleges do not have principals and is working with less teaching staff . Opening of more colleges will only add to the burden.
