CID to probe BEd college irregularities

Bangalore, Jan 10, 2013 DHNS:

The State government has ordered a CID probe into the alleged irregularities in BEd colleges affiliated to Bangalore University, which have been accused of issuing fake degree certificates to students from both within and outside the State.

Addressing presspersons here on Thursday, Higher Education Minister C T Ravi said following recommendations made by the Karan Kumar committee, which has sought derecognition of 86 colleges of the 111 that came under scrutiny, the government had decided to order the inquiry. The CID probe has to be completed within six months, he added.
The committee had classified the 111 colleges, based on the level of irregularities. Only 12 colleges have been classified as “satisfactory,” to which University affiliation can be continued.

The committee has said that 13 colleges have scope for improvement and affiliation to these can be continued with a few conditions.

As many as 18 colleges have been classified as ‘illegal.’ Affiliation to these should be cancelled with a condition that the irregularities have to be set right within six months. The committee has identified 23 colleges which are in serious violation for allowing students to take up exams without even conducting classes. While 20 colleges are not even in existence, 16 of them do not have National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) recognition. Nine colleges have been blacklisted by the Academic Audit Committee.


Ravi said that the government had taken serious note of the racket and the committee recommendations and, stringent action would be initiated against those found guilty.
