BU accounts to be reworked to right anomalies

The Bangalore University Academic Council, on Thursday, found glaring discrepancies in the annual accounts of 2011-2012 amounting to nearly Rs 12 lakh, resulting in the entire report being rejected with calls for its reworking.

Members suggested a reworking within three days under the guidance of council member and practicing chartered accountant Babu Rao. While, a total of Rs 1.84 lakh was shown as fees collected from open university, the actual amount was Rs 4.84 lakh. Likewise, in the account statement, service charges worth Rs 0.78 lakh was collected from library receipts, while the amount shown was Rs 9.52  lakh.

The council also decided on a seven member committee to scrutinise guidelines of Local Inquiry Committees (LIC)  that was formulated in 2011. The committee will meet on Monday.
Guidelines for promotion of teachers, librarians and physical education in accordance to Career Assessment Scheme (CAS) under University Grants Commission (UGC) was also considered.

“A comprehensive document relating to CAS was worked out section by section and CAS interview statutes has been approved by the government. A decision in this regard will soon be made,” said new Vice Chancellor Thimmegowda, who was chairing his first academic council.  

The meeting also highlighted delay of college principals in submitting affiliations fee resulting in loss of crores of rupees according to council members. A proposal to set up more stringent measures was agreed to be put in place.
