BOLSTERED BY the high court’s support, the Lucknow University administration has decided to take several measures to plug loopholes and keep troublemakers out of the campus.
Lucknow University Vice-Chancellor RP Singh said he and his team was drawing up a strategy to deal with the present crisis situation and working overtime to ensure that unruly elements did not get admission. Thus, the university has decided to make police verification mandatory when admission begins next year.
“This is one area we will not compromise on when admission begins next session. I’m confident half the battle will be won if we succeed in preventing troublemakers from getting admission ,” he said.
University officials believe that the only way to maintain a good academic atmosphere is to keep students with a poor academic record out of the campus.
He added, “We will try to ensure transparency in the admission process so that only meritorious and genuine students are taken. There is no place for students with criminal records on the campus.”
He said if unruly elements could be weeded out at the time of admission, the task of maintaining law and order ould become much easier.
An official of the examination cell said, “If required, closed circuit cameras will be installed in classrooms to keep a hawk eye on copycats.” The LU had decided to use closed circuit cameras in the 2005 examinations, but withdrew the order following protests from student leaders.
But, now, there would be copying-free examinations, the V-C said.
The university is planning to raise minimum qualification marks for those seeking admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
