THOUGH THE agitation called by Youth Congress activists in support of Physiotherapy students at the Indore Institute of Medical Sciences (Bhandari Hospital and Research Centre) loomed large over the Devi Ahilya Vishwa Vidyalaya (DAVV) Executive Council (EC) meeting the allegations levelled by the outfit did not find a place on the agenda today.
For the first time the meeting was not held at the RNT Marg premise of the University but at IET and though the university officials maintained that it was so due to a pre-decided programme of showing the EC members works being carried out at the Khandwa Road campus sources said that it was done in order to avoid facing a confrontational situation with the Youth congress activists adamant at staging demonstrations in front of EC members.
The activists alleging mass irregularities in the said college and the absence of a syllabus with the university raised slogans renting the air until Vice Chancellor (V-C) CS Chaddha called them for redressal of their grievances.
He assured that the issues raised by them would be considered and said that the syllabus was available with the university though some mistakes had been found in it. The students would be invited to present their case in front of Board of Studies members whose meeting would be called within three-days for settling the dispute. If the board found the mistakes to be of a serious nature the
exams for the students would be held again under special circumstances and legal action if found necessary would be taken against the college authorities.
Acting Registrar Sudhakar Bharti said that the matter did not figure in the meeting, as it was sub-judice. The university had submitted the relevant documents including the syllabus with the High Court.
The most important outcome of the meeting was the acceptance of Rs one lakh granted by Devi Ahilya Janmotsav Samiti president Nagendra Azad towards the constitution of two prizes, one for the highest scorer and the other for following the ideals of Ahilya Bai. The university would award a gold medal, memento and citation from the interest accrued on this amount to the highest scorer from any discipline.
The revised Dearness Allowance (DA) rates for university employees on the lines of State Government employees were brought into effect from April one. Revised rates for paying staff engaged in conducting joint entrance test for the coming session were accepted and passed in this meeting.
On the recommendations of the permanent committee for education it was decided that before granting renewal to BEd courses the forms submitted by these colleges be scrutinised by a special committee constituted for this purpose and affiliation ad renewal be granted only on its recommendations.
The recommendations of the Fee Determination Committee were accepted for the various courses run by the departments of the university. Muktesh Singh and Kanwaljeet Singh were nominated on the sports committee by the EC.
