Yoga classes a must in all colleges, universities


Starting this academic year, it will be mandatory for all colleges and universities across the State to ensure that yoga is taught in their institutions. This will apply to private colleges too.

“Currently, only some universities have courses in yoga. But we want all higher education institutions in the State to ensure that their students practise yoga regularly,” said Higher Education Minister G.T. Deve Gowda at a press conference after a meeting with Vice Chancellors and officials of all universities in the State.

Subject experts

The Higher Education Minister also felt the need for subject experts in colleges. “I have learnt that for several years, science lecturers are teaching commerce, and vice-versa. This practice will now be stopped,” he said, adding that the problem of staff shortage could be solved as the Finance Department had given its approval to appoint 5,000 teachers in higher education institutions.
