To ensure transparency in all the activities of students at different stages, Panjab University (PU) syndicate meet scheduled for January 23 will be finalising the modified mechanism for redressal of grievances of students.
Varsity had framed mechanism for redressal of grievances of students by which they will be provided an appellate authority. As per the proposal, a student will be able to submit his complaint directly to the head of the department instead of going to a department-level committee or university-level committee for academic or administrative issue.
The procedure will now come up as agenda item before syndicate meeting on January 23. Dean Student Welfare, Prof Navdeep Goyal, has framed the guidelines in which he has suggested for the formation of department-level and university-level committees.
PU syndicate will also be raising the issue of facilities for the persons with disability for the conduct of written examination with immediate effect and also on the difference in the scheme of syllabus taught to the students of MBA 3rd semester at PURC, Ludhiana and at the University Business School, PU, for the session 2015-16. Following the demand from a majority of students, the issue of extension in the date of admission to all classes under semester system, through USOL with late fee of `20,000 will also be taken up at the syndicate.
