Committee to probe financial irregularities


Limbavali, welcoming the suggestion given by  Mir Aziz Ahmed (Cong), said that a committee would be set up to probe the irregularities in the universities. Earlier, Ahmed had asked the minister on the action taken by the government in connection with financial irregularities at Kuvempu University.

Limbavali in a written reply stated that the fact finding committee which probed the delay in payment and reimbursement of scholarships to SC/ST students had submitted the report to the university syndicate. He also stated that the syndicate had decided to transfer all the employees to other sections and credit the scholarships online to their respective bank accounts.

Doddarange Gowda (Nomi) questioned the minister if the Government was recruiting PhD and MPhil candidates who obtained their degrees via distance education programmes in universities such as Alagappa University, Kamaraj University and Periyar University. Gowda added that several of these degrees were dubious and were obtained within a matter of months and therefore the governments of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh had issued directions against their recruitment.

Dubious degree holders
Limbavali in his reply stated that the government was not recruiting dubious degree holders but if the members came across any such instances the appointments would be cancelled. He said the government was not aware of any such directions from the governments of the neighbouring states.
