    The Telangana Mahila Viswavidyalayam in Koti, which is the first women’s university in the state, is facing several issues. These include a shortage of faculty, some buildings in poor condition, and a lack of classrooms. The university is entering its centenary year in September and plans to introduce new courses such as BA Fashion Design and Technology, MSC Data Science, and MSC Food Science.

    The main problem is a severe shortage of staff. Most of the faculty are on contract, with only 25 permanent teaching staff. The university needs 217 permanent staff in total. Additionally, there are not enough classrooms for the approximately 5,000 students studying undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The university currently has 96 classrooms but needs 10-12 more.

    The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. M Vijjulatha, acknowledged these problems and stated that there have been no changes in the institution for a long time. The university is facing a fund shortage, but they plan to renovate the dilapidated physics block and construct a hostel and academic blocks to accommodate more students. They have also requested a full-fledged auditorium from the State government.

    The lack of teaching and non-teaching staff is hindering the introduction of new courses. Currently, there are only 25 permanent teaching staff out of the required 217, and only 44 permanent non-teaching staff out of the required 384. Some students have complained that despite being upgraded to a university, Koti Women’s College lacks necessary facilities, such as a hostel. As a result, many students are forced to stay in the Osmania University hostel.

    The students have submitted multiple representations to the university authorities regarding these issues but have not received a response. They urge the State government to start the recruitment process and address the lack of infrastructure so that the university can offer more courses and provide better facilities for its students.
