KSOU recognition: UGC committee verifies records

An expert committee from University Grants Commission (UGC) on Friday launched the verification process in connection with the renewal of recognition of courses at Karnataka State Open University (KSOU).

The committee, led by Prof H P Dixit, during its two-day inquiry will look into the grounds on which the KSOU was de-recognised and the merit on the basis of which the affidavit for recognition can be considered. The process, that began at 11 am, lasted seven hours on Friday.

 On Friday, the committee comprising Dixit, Ajay Pandit, A S Narang and P Prakash verified the documents pertaining to research materials, certificates of the courses offered at KSOU, distance education-related documents, acceptance letters from the private institutions to run various courses and other related records.

The committee further recorded the statement of KSOU Vice-chancellor M G Krishnan, Registrars P S Nayak and Prof K J Suresh (exam), Dean (Academics) T D Devegowda and Finance Officer Khader Pasha.

The statement of Vice-chancellor of University of Mysore and previous VC of KSOU Prof K S Rangappa and MLC Go Madhusudan, who is vociferous in unearthing the irregularities in the varsity, were also recorded by the UGC committee. The inquiry will continue on Saturday too.

“It is too early to conclude anything. A detailed report will be submitted to UGC after completing the verification process.” H P Dixit told reporters.
