DEVI AHILYA Vishwa Vidyalaya (DAVV) finally relented on ceding its land for the development of the software park coming up at Khandwa Road with the Executive Council (EC) taking a decision in this regard at a meeting held today.

The park being developed by Audyogik Kendra Vikas Nigam (AKVN) had turned into a big project, thanks to free hand funding by the Central and State governments and the State Government making it a prestige issue to turn the park into a developmental hub. The university, however, was unwilling to part with its land and their adamant attitude had stalled any move in this aspect.

Today, however, the EC decided to concede in the interest of development of the City by giving 1.2-acre land under the supervision of the State Government to get the park recognised as a Special Economic Zone (SEZ).

The EC expressed displeasure over some examination centres appointed by the university not presenting their anticipated budget for conducting the exam even after holding the same. The errant centres were asked to present the same for last year (2005) within two months and principals failing to do so would face a deduction of Rs 1,000 per day from their salary.

It was decided that the books of accounts showing expenditure incurred would have to be presented henceforth, from 2006, within a month of holding the exam in order to receive budgetary allocation from the university.

The unused mobile ophthalmology van gifted to the university by a UK-based doctor came back to haunt the university administration again and the EC decided to resolve the matter once and for all by reinstating a committee under the chairmanship of the Vice- Chancellor to decide on the issue. The Head of Department Ophthalmology at MGM Medical College would also be a member of this committee.

The Governor and Chancellor of Universities and the State Government were thanked for sanctioning posts of 245 teachers in the self-financing courses run by the university thus saving four of its prestigious departments from imminent closure.

The teachers/employees of Academic Staff College, School of Economics and EMRC were given sanction by the EC for direct induction and promotion under the career advancement scheme. The draft prepared for the subject courses of MBA Financial Services and M Com were recommended to the Universities Coordination Committee for their approval.

Sanction was accorded to give the new auditorium to the social-cum-cultural organisation Sanand Nyas for 36 days in a year for a minimal charge of Rs six lakh and one rupee. Sanction was also accorded for several construction projects in the university campus and for the purchase of equipment needed by various departments.
