DELAY IN declaration of results of professional courses by the four-star Devi Ahilya Viswavidyalaya (DAVV) is costing the students dear with many loosing out on jobs in the absence of mark sheets.
Students of MBA core course full time final semester from more than seven colleges today visited the university administrative block on the RNT Marg campus and called upon officials.
The students complained that their results were not declared even after a month since the declared time frame for releasing results.
Their exams had been conducted from June 11 to July 5 and the date for announcing results had already been extended from August to September 1.
There are approximately 300 students in the final semester of this course and their fate now hangs on the whims of he university, while they are left with no option other than to see their counterparts getting selected by companies. It is learnt from sources that those assigned the responsibility of checking the examination copies have not started on their job causing inordinate delay and costing the students their prospects for getting jobs.
The students said that they could not appear in on campus placement drives as most big companies insisted on seeing their mark sheet or degree, which in the absence of the first could not be presented. Some of the students had gone outside the State for this reason and appeared in interviews but faced the same problem and thus wasted money on traveling.
In another matter concerned with the same department that is ‘examination’ the Vice Chancellor Dr Rajkamal had to seek action against erring principals of two colleges on not supplying proper information on students thus leaving them on the brink of being classified as fail.
It is learnt that internal marks of Tripti Tiwari and Barkha Tank was not sent by their respective colleges- Compfeeders Technical Education Institute and Vidyasagar College. The university as per rule could fail the students. The rule requires the colleges to send practical and theory marks along with internal marks before March 12. A combination of all three is required to get a pass degree as much as the necessity of minimum qualifying marks.
The students had raised objection to the same and the principals had been summoned by the V-C. The V-C acting on the policy of working for the benefit of students and specially when they were not in the wrong, fixed the blame on the colleges. As the principals are directly responsible to the university he did not buy their logic of punishing the teachers.
He asked the examination department to find out whether the principals could be fined and has issued stern warning letters to them.
Rs 20 lakh solar system for energy department sanctioned
A SOLAR system would be installed at a cost of Rs 20 lakh to meet the requirements of Energy Department at Devi Ahilya Vishwa Vidyalaya as per a decision taken in the Executive Committee (EC) meeting held on Wednesday.
Acting Vice Chancellor Dr Rajkamal said that the University Teaching Department (UTD) is a model in adopting energy saving measures and using renewable sources of energy to meet its requirements. The department has rooms insulated with special material that absorbs cold and heat and transforms it into energy to run the air conditioner and other electrical appliances.
The solar panel would be set up by the TATA Company. Fifty per cent of the cost would be borne by the Department of Energy (renewable energy wing) with the Centre and the remaining by the university through funds generated from self-financing institutions. The panel is slated to start supplying energy by December.
