Making a statement in the House after Speaker Biman Banerjee refused admission to an adjournment motion moved by Congress member Asit Mitra, Chatterjee said the perception in various circles was that the entire on-line admission process to colleges had been withdrawn.
This is not the case, he said, adding 75 colleges where infrastructure exists would continue online admission this year as well.

Chatterjee said there were 519 colleges where connectivity had not taken place and these would have off-line admission.
Connecting all the colleges across the state under various universities would take some and after it was done the entire process would go on-line, he added.

Earlier during the question hour, Chatterjee said in the fiscal 2013-14, 21 lakh applications were submitted for primary teacher’s jobs, out of which 15,868 were absorbed.

At present, there were 23,000 vacancies for primary teachers. Meanwhile, the Left members staged a brief walk-out over the law and order situation of state, on which they brought an adjournment motion and was subsequently refused by the Speaker.
