Committee formed to inquire into marks card scam


As per sources, the committee would go into details like at what stage the irregularities had occurred and those responsible for the same. Students, who procured ‘doctored’ marks cards would also be questioned by the committee. A detailed report would be submitted to the UoM which in turn will be placed before the Syndicate to discuss the issue threadbare. According to preliminary investigations, out of the total 458 ‘fake marks cards’ 126 belonged to B A Annual, 124 to B A Semester, 79 to B.Sc Annual, 25 B.Com semester, 18 B.Com semester, 8 BBM semester (SS), 9 BBM Semester (ISS), 17 BBM Semester (RSS), 19 LLb three year courses and 13 belonged to LLB five years course. The university had already collected doctored marks cards, answer scripts, code slip and other documents. Three staff members of the varsity had been relieved from their duties with effect from September 29 in connection with this.

The Syndicate also decided to question Dr M N Narasimhamurthy, head of the Computer Wing, Department of evaluation, to declare null and void results of students who obtained fake marks cards through dubious means, to withdraw degree conferred on them, to cancel marks cards of all 458 students who are pursuing studies in various colleges affiliated to UoM and to register criminal case against all those who are found guilty after the completion of inquiry.

The committe will be informed about the steps being taken by the varsity to ensure safety of answer scripts, marks cards prepared by valuators and also code slips pertaining to subjects concerned. The registrar (evaluation) personally enquired a few incidents in connection with the scam and collected details. The members appealed to principals of all colleges not to distribute any marks cards pertaining to the incident of examinations held in April, 2009 and also send back all of them. Besides, the colleges should collect marks cards of previous years and forward the same to the varsity for inquiry purpose. Accordingly, the marks cards of many students had been withdrawn.
