Mysore varsity approves closure of PhD programmes

The University of Mysore (UoM) Academic Council members on Monday, approved the request of the JSS Research Foundation (JSSRF) and Bio-Control Research Laboratories (BCRL), Bengaluru, not to renew the recognition granted for their PhD programmes.

In a meeting, chaired by UoM in-charge VC Dayananda Mane at Crawford Hall, the authorities decided to consider the request of both institutions.

JSSRF chief executive T N Nagabhushan, in a letter to Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Board, UoM, had mentioned that the foundation is unable to comply with the regulations as per the new guidelines. Hence, they have decided not to admit fresh research scholars from the academic year 2017-18. However, the research scholars, who have been registered with the foundation would continue to carry out the works and submit the thesis.

Similarly, BCRL authorities have mentioned that they have decided not to renew the recognition granted for PhD programmes, due to unavoidable administrative reasons.

The council approved the request of St Joseph's First Grade College, Hassan, to shift from Salagame Road in Hassan city to a new building near the Dairy Circle, B Katihally in Hassan.

The council also approved the initiation of Professor Hashim Ali endowment gold medal, donated by Siraj Hashim Ali, wife of the professor.
