Exams were held, but by mistake, says B'lore varsity

Bangalore, Sep 26, 2012, DHNS :

Bangalore University Registrar (Evaluation) R K Somashekar on Wednesday said the answer scripts of a blacklisted BEd college were evaluated and results were declared, by ‘mistake’.

The Deccan Herald on September 26 had reported that the University officials had allowed the correction and announcement of the results of one of the blacklisted colleges.†

The Registrar (Evaluation) has held the chairperson of Board of Examination (BoE), who is the custodian for the examinations, responsible.

However, the marks cards have not been issued, he added.

With regard to other reports that appeared in the newspaper on giving permission for holding practical examinations in the barred colleges, the Registrar (Evaluation) said it was allowed “in the light of an interim order of the High Court of Karnataka,” pending the Court’s decisions.

Interim order

The Registrar, however, failed to elaborate on the interim order. The University lawyer told Deccan Herald that she is unaware of it.

Reacting to the newsreport that the Registrar (Evaluation) had allowed nine of the 11 barred colleges to conduct practical exams in September, Somashekar denied it stating that he was in the US during the period.

“My signatures stated to be on the documents may have been forged,” he said.

Obligated to sign


He had also said that the Officer on Special Duty was obligated to sign on the permission letters, in his absence,† as the Registrar (Administration) had initiated the permission letters.

He added that he was not aware of the exams until the media reported about it.

U-turn

Retracting from his earlier denials, on Wednesday, Somashekar stated in the media release that, “…In the month of September, 2012, on the request of BEd colleges and note submitted by the Registrar (Evaluation) through the Registrar (Admin), on the advice of the University Legal Adviser, the colleges have been permitted to conduct practical examination,” making the official a party to it as well.
