Shetty panel report to be tabled in next session

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of Mangalore University convocation at Mangalagangothri near here on Tuesday, he said the process for the same has been started. “The report has to be sent to the Law Department and later to the Cabinet for approval, before presenting it in the Assembly,” he said.

The Committee’s recommendations include uniform legislation for all universities; direct appointment of officers by varsities; revival of elections to university bodies; five-year tenure for V-Cs; only academicians as V-Cs; State Council for Higher Education to replace Inter-University Board; and constitution of grievance redressal tribunal among others. The Committee had submitted its report in February 2010.

Replying to a query, he said the State government is also contemplating on implementing common fees and common admissions. “Though there is no Act in this regard, the issue will be studied based on a similar Act existing in Madhya Pradesh.”
