Panjab University (PU) syndicate will take a call on granting temporary extension of affiliation to Institute of Management of DAV College, Sector 10, for its master of business administration course(MBA) on November 9.
PU syndicate will meet on November 9 with ten items for consideration on its agenda.
PU had earlier this year declined temporary affiliation to the Management Institute of DAV College for session 2019-10 following which the management institute moved the Panjab and Haryana high court in August seeking affiliation.
PU syndicate in November 2018 had granted temporary extension of affiliation to the Management Institute of DAV College, Sector 10, on condition of the institute’s compliance with the deficiencies pointed out by inspection committee within three months.
The inspection committee of PU on September 24, 2019, in a fresh inspection, had found several deficiencies. Based on which recommendation was made by the inspection committee not to grant a temporary extension of affiliation to the petitioner for the MBA course for the session 2019-20
Last year in September, PU had cancelled the affiliation to DAV Institute of Management, Sector 10 for academic session 2018-19 before granting temporary extension in November.
In its October 18 order, Panjab and Haryana high court directed DAV College to submit their objections before PU syndicate. The decision of the syndicate will be placed before the court on November 15.
