SILCHAR, Sept 6 - The Teachers Training College at Silchar was established in 1960 and over the years, many teachers have established themselves successfully, being taught the basics of teaching at the institute. But in the past decades, the college has undergone wear and tear and is currently suffering from poor infrastructure and acute shortage of teaching staff. The poor facilities and lacunas faced by the college came to the fore on the sidelines of Teacher�s Day function celebrated in the college on Tuesday.
Dr Aparna Bhattacharjee, the principal in-charge of the college said �the college has four permanent teachers but presently, two teachers are working elsewhere on adjustment. We have 13 posts including three professors, one principal and one demonstrator which are lying vacant. The academic affairs are run by 10 guest faculties.� However, according to Dr Aparna Bhattacharjee, they are leaving no stone unturned to train the learners. �It is an institute of teachers who are trained to shape the future of the country. Despite the hurdles, we are committed to our task and we deliver our best to the 200 learners in the institute coming over from Cachar, Karimganj, Hailakandi and Dima Hasao districts.�
