PU colleges flouting admission rules: Forum

Shikshana Rakshana Vedike Convener Lolaksha has alleged that education institutions were breaking government norms in pre-university education admission in Dakshina Kannada and district education regulation authority has completely failed to implement the rules.

Briefing reporters, on Thursday, he said there are 184 PU colleges including 54 government in the district and around 60,000 students get admitted to PUC. As per government norms, PUC admission should be commenced only after SSLC results in a prescribed form which can be downloaded from PU Education Department website.

However, many colleges had admitted students before announcement of SSLC result and distributed their own application formats, which is an offence. The Deputy Director of Pre-University Education is on leave.

Though government circular clearly says that officials should inform parents and students about norms, mainly about fees, it is not being done. As a result, few institutions are busy in robbing poor families. DDPU and Deputy Commissioner, who is also District Education Regulation Authority Chairman, are reason for this, he said.

Lolaksha said colleges should put reservation, fees and other information on flex boards in college premises well before admission process to help parents, but it is not being followed. Few private colleges in City collect donation from Rs 37,000 up to Rs 2,50,000. Local administration is also helping people, engaged in it, he alleged.

Meanwhile, he said the forum would submit a complaint to Chief Secretary against DC A B Ibrahim who had extended the date till May 8 for schools to put flex boards with information including reservation, fees and others regarding primary and secondary school admission.
The DC has no provision to extend the date as per rules.

Moreover, the decision doesn’t make sense as the last date to submit application was April 30, he said.  Child Welfare Committee former member Rennie D’Souza, Mangalore Bar Association President Chengappa, Forum Joint Convener Chandrashekhar and Jyothi were present.
