GUNTUR: Commissioner for Collegiate Education G.N. Rao has promised to get a job for all the students passing of degree colleges by providing them with the best available skills through setting up of one Jawahar Knowledge Centre for every college in the days to come.

During his visit to the Jawahar Knowledge Centre at Government Women’s College here on Thursday, he said that 2,200 had found jobs through the JKC during the current academic year. This figure would improve phenomenally in the coming days with a large number of multi-national companies and Indian industrial houses making a beeline to these centres to recruit staff for their companies at various levels with different skills.

“The first decision I took after assuming charge as the Commissioner was to sanction good state-of-the-art computers for all the JKCs to help them impart good training to the students enrolling here," Mr. Rao told reporters.

On a routine visit to the district he held discussion with the JKC coordinators, Acharya Nagarjuna University officials and other district-level officials to get the first-hand information on status of collegiate education in Guntur district.

Internet access to all colleges was next priority for the Government to be fulfilled very soon and good library and laboratories only can improve the quality of education and employability of the students, he opined.

The Government Women’s College JKC Centre Coordinator Sasi Bala was also present on the occasion and explained the activities of the centre. She gave the statistics of the students employed through this centre in Infosys and other companies in the campus interviews held recently.
