Many BU Affiliated Schools Wants To Stay Connected

Many Colleges To Stay Under BU
The Bangalore University very recently came into a decision to bifurcate the affiliated colleges to another university. Later, when the state Government of Karnataka announced that BU would be bifurcated, many of its affiliated colleges have declared to stay in connection with the BU.

In such case these colleges would be transferred to the new DVG Jnanavahini University (North Bangalore University). Though, the Government has established the North Bangalore University, most of the institutes are against the request to shift their affiliation.


The government has planned to retain 356 colleges with Bangalore University. However, these colleges will be directed to work from the new university campus. The remaining 298 colleges will be moved to DVG Jnanavahini University.

A spokesperson from such college said that their problem was not the distance, which would require traveling to Hoskote, but the wish to retain the name of Bangalore University.

Many colleges in order to over come this issue, held a protest against the decision stating that the government has not chosen to involve them in the process. Several colleges have branches across the city and based on this some could be transferred to the new university, while others remain with BU.

The sources from the government said that DVG Jnanavahini University is yet to get recognized and hence, the certificates being awarded to these students will have little or no value. Also, it is decided that RC College, Maharani College, Government Arts and Science College and Government Home Science College will be shifted to the new University.
