"The teams will inspect infrastructure and faculty strength, among other things," he said.
He announced that all colleges in all universities will have ‘innovation councils' henceforth.
Mr. Deshpande asked about the ongoing debate over teacher education courses with specific reference to B.Ed. colleges affiliated to Bangalore University.
Recently, Bangalore University Task Force submitted its final report on B.Ed. colleges affiliated to Bangalore University, declared that students of the blacklisted B.Ed. colleges of the academic year 2011-12 are not allowed to take up their second semester exams.
Referring to a Supreme Court order that students of colleges without affiliation to the university should not be allowed to sit for the exams for the ongoing year, the Task Force urged the Registrar (Evaluations) to apply the dictum to students of nine colleges.
"The university need not show any mercy either towards the students (of blacklisted colleges) or to the institutions having made the admission without any rights for the academic year 2012-13," it stated.
The Task Force recommended that in future, Bangalore University must provide a copy of the National Council for Teacher Education norms to the members of the Local Inquiry Committees prior to their inspection.
