Poor attendance of lecturers appointed for the evaluation of answer sheets has forced Bangalore University to write a letter, asking principals to ensure attendance or face action.
The evaluation of the answer scripts of the examinations conducted in December was to begin on December 26. However, due to a boycott by the lecturers' association, it began only on December 30.
Even after the strike was called off, the attendance has been poor.
"For English, we are getting only about 50% attendance from evaluators. For other subjects, it is about 70%. Evaluation work is mandatory. We have written to the department of collegiate education, asking it to withhold the salary of lecturers from government and aided colleges who fail to turn up for the duty," said Prof C Shivaraju, Registrar (Evaluation), BU.
He added that the results of private colleges would not be released if they did not ensure that lecturers appointed for evaluation work completed the task. Further, a disaffiliation process could be initiated against them.
The letter requested the principals to relieve lecturers who have been assigned evaluation duty. It also warned colleges that have already reopened after vacation, as they are not following the university schedule.
