BU will withold results of colleges not sending staff for valuation

Left in the lurch by its affiliated colleges every semester during exam revaluation, Bangalore University on Friday announced that affiliation teams would not be sent to colleges that do not send their lecturers for valuation work.

Further, the university will also not declare the results of students in those colleges.
Speaking after the university syndicate meeting here, Bangalore University Vice-Chancellor Prof B Thimme Gowda said “We will not send the Local Inquiry Committees (LIC) to colleges that do not send their lecturers for valuation work.”

The university has been facing the problem every time as lecturers do not appear for revaluation work. Owing to this, the varsity had to often grapple with delay in results. To ensure that students get their results on time, the university has now resorted to stringent measures to make colleges take the valuation work seriously.

As an additional measure, the university has also included the same in the new LIC Tools. The LIC tools are the parameters for assessing the performance of a college, based on which their affiliation or renewal of affiliation is granted every year. The university recently made lecturers’ attendance for exam valuation as one of the parameters for rating the college’s performance.

Building construction in six months
The university will ensure completion of pending construction works in the six months, Prof Thimme Gowda said. Construction work of several buildings has been pending for the past six to eight years. The university has received scathing criticism for delay in these works.

Now, the university has constituted a Technical Advisory Committee to scrutinise the pending work. The report of this committee will be sent to the works committee which will include PWD chief engineer, the vice chancellor and the registrar as its members. After recommendations of the works committee, it will be forwarded to the university syndicate before sending the same to the State government, Gowda added. He added that to maintain transparency they would put up the details of the pending amount (that the university owes to contractors) and other financial details on the university website.

Merging departments
The university has proposed to bring Applied Genetics and Zoology under the Zoology department and Botany and Molecular Biology under the Botany department. As of now, the applied genetics and molecular Biology function as separate departments. However, owing to logistic reasons, the departments are being merged, Prof Gowda said. But, nothing will change with respect to the course. The applied genetics and molecular biology students will still receive their certificates in the area of their chosen specialisation.

Four colleges closed
The Syndicate also approved a request from four colleges, affiliated to the university, which voluntarily wanted to shut shop. These colleges are Ganga Kaveri (general degree courses), Padmavathi B Ed College, Vasavi Vidyanikethan Trust (running BA and BBM courses) and NNM College.
