Government College guntur will soon be an option for women students who wish to take up an educational career at a public institution.
The new program will be open to all women from 18 years old to 35 years old, and has been developed with the support of the government.
The government college, currently run by the Centre for Education and Research, has been a target of controversy due to the recent murder of a teacher by a student.
The case prompted a huge protest in the city.
Women who have applied for admission to the government campus will be given a letter of invitation, which will be handed over to them to check their eligibility.
The invitation letter will be made available on the website, where women can enter their information and apply for admission.
A letter of permission is required to apply for the job.
It is understood that the new government college is also being developed for men, and the government has decided to increase the number of women in the program.
The program will start with the admission of two students from each of the six public institutions in the state.
Students who do not meet the admissions criteria of their respective universities will be selected on merit, and then they will have to complete a test, which they will be required to pass, to gain admission to government colleges in the next four years.
The test will be administered on the campus.
“It will take between six to eight hours and be completed in the office of the school principal,” a government official said.
“We are also planning to have a team of experts on the ground to check the applicants credentials,” the official added.
The government college has not been a part of the public sector education system for decades, despite having a population of almost 6.5 lakh people.
The women are eligible for admission only to government institutions.
There are around 1,000 government colleges across the state, with more than 500 colleges in Assam, Mizoram, and Sikkim.
