Syndicate members to meet Guv

On Tuesday, several syndicate members alleged that Vice chancellor has approved the intake of Rajarajeshwari Institute of Medical Sciences, Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences and Bangalore Medical College flouting various norms like forming an inspection committee without informing the syndicate and granting permission for increased intake.

The intake of Rajarajeshwari Institute of Medical Sciences is 100, while KIMS is about 120 and Bangalore Medical College is 150. These colleges have applied for an increase of intake to 250.

According to a senior syndicate member RGUHS Act states that whenever the university receives an application for increase of intake, the syndicate shall direct a local enquiry by local person or persons authorised by syndicates. It is the duty of syndicate to form Local inspection committee, which will inspect the infrastructure and other facilities of the college.
"The vice chancellor did not mention about forming an LIC committee during the syndicate meeting on August 20. They also sent an inspection to Rajarajeshwari College with in few days," said a senior syndicate member.

"The head of the LIC committee should be a syndicate member; this rule has also been violated by the members," said another senate member.

In the meantime, an academic council meeting was held at RGUHS. However, the recommendations were not placed in the syndicate meeting. "We are waiting for the government's take on the issue. We will also meet the governor, who is also vice chancellor of the university," said another syndicate member.
