Karnataka Finally Nominates Representatives for BU Syndicate
BENGALURU: The state government has finally nominated its representatives to the Bangalore University syndicate on Monday. The posts were vacant for two years.
The file, which was pending before the Chief Minister since several months, was cleared on Sunday and sent to the Higher Education Department for official orders on Monday. Sources in the CM’s office and the Higher Education Department told Express that the nominated members are: B G Ravikumar, Vijay Kumar Simha N, Jayanna (Malavalli Jayanna), Daneal Fernandese (Daniel Fernandez), Manjunath K R and Nafiz Fatima.
The then Higher Education Minister R V Deshpande had removed all Syndicate members appointed by the previous BJP government in the state’s universities in June 2013. The removed members then moved the High Court against the decision, but the court ruled against them.
Few months ago, the government nominated it’s representatives to most universities, except Bangalore university, University of Mysore and Karnatak University, Dharwad. On Sunday the Chief Minister cleared the names for Bangalore University.
About 200 to 350 people had applied to be nominated as Syndicate members and a majority of the applications came with recommendation/reference letters from MLAs, MPs, community leaders, according to sources.
Role of Syndicate Members
Though the role of government nominees in the syndicates is not clearly stated in the Karnataka State Universities Act (2000), many people wish to become a member mainly because of the close association with affiliated colleges and the university.
The appointed members will get opportunities to head Local Inquiry Committees (LIC) which play an important role in renewal of affiliation and increasing intake of affiliated colleges. Members will also be heads of many committees setup by their universities.
However, there are also allegations of corruption against many syndicate members across universities.
V-C Miffed Over List
Meanwhile, sources say Bangalore University authorities are unhappy over some of the names recommended by the government. It is said that there are allegations against some of the nominees. Highly placed sources said Vice-Chancellor Dr B Thimme Gowda will write to the Chief Minister about the allegations along with the reports sent to Higher Education Department.
