UoM plans to adopt e-governance

The University of Mysore is planning to adopt the e-governance and make it part of its administrative and academic process.

Being the oldest varsity in the state, the University of Mysore’s move is expected to make it a paperless system.

Sources revealed that the move has been planned in order to deal with the staff shortage facing the varsity.

According to plans, Crawford Hall, the administrative headquarters of the university and other departments including academic sections would be included under the e-governance. Pursuing the plan, a blue print has been prepared to turn e-governance into reality.

The university has 58 study centres, eight research centres, four postgraduate centres and employs more than 600 staff in the districts of Mysore, Hassan, Mandya and Chamarajanagar. The university has 112 offices in order to maintain its administrative process. More than 90,000 in these four districts are pursuing various courses in the university.

At present, the university releases the exam results, time table, courses and details of entrance exams on the university website. With the implementation of e-governance, maintenance of records would also go online.

Each student would be given e-mail and password once e-governance is implemented. Through this applications, students can get details of examination fee, applications, laboratory and attendance through e-mail.

Recognised under the university with potential for excellence by the University Grants Commission (UGC), sources said Rs 4 crore has been allocated for implementation of e-governance. In the first phase, Rs 2.4 crore has been released and an action plan has already been prepared by the university.

While the university has 1,300 posts and around 600 are employed, sources said introducing the e-governance would help improve performance in the varsity.
