The Arunachal Pradesh government has decided to set up two new model colleges at Tirap and Longding districts to improve the education scenario.
State Education Minister Bosiram Siram said, the state government is putting more emphasis on education, particularly in the higher education sector, while inaugurating the 18th college week of Rang-Frah Government College (RFGC) at Changlang district yesterday, official sources said.
He assured that the present shortage of faculty members at RFGC and other government colleges of the state would end with the appointment of 94 newly selected assistant professors.
The minister also said that recruitment of school teachers would be conducted by the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) in order to improve the standard of education.
Siram said the stipend for the students had been increased substantially.
Earlier, Siram visited the upcoming new campus site of the college and asked the Principal and the executing agency to complete the project as per the requirement of the college, the sources said.
