As many as 360 colleges have been blacklisted by the Nagpur University for flouting norms by not appointing a regular prinicipal or head of the institution.
Most of these colleges are either named after or run by city politicians or belong to big industrial houses.
A high court bench had recently directed the Nagpur University to make it mandatory for all colleges in the state to appoint regular principals or directors before May 31, 2009 — before the commencement of the 2010-11 academic session.
Accordingly, the Nagpur university dispatched circulars and letters informing all colleges to comply with the high court order but they went ahead with the admissions.
Also, the varsity issued a warning on August 14, that students who have opted for admission in blacklisted colleges will have to bear the brunt in case of any problems.
Besides, the students’ academic and financial losses, if any, will be the responsibility of the college management, the university added.
