BU increased annual BMTC bus pass fare
Bangalore University has increased the annual BMTC bus pass fare from Rs 600/- to Rs 1000/-. In a meeting on Thursday evening, BU Vice Chancellor has decided to increase the bus pass fare annually by an increase of 40%.

 

"There are 17 bus routes to Bangalore University from different parts of the city. University is already paying Rs 60 lakh per year to BMTC and, with increased bus fare, the varsity will have to pay Rs 10 lakh over and above the amount. We have also requested the transport department to convert the contract buses into general route buses," said B Thimme Gowda, vice chancellor, BU.

The syndicate also plans to hike the lease rate at the Jnana Bharati campus from Rs 100 per acre to Rs 5,000 per acre.

Recently, around 60 B.Ed colleges affiliated to university have received the show cause notice from NCTE to cancel affiliation.

Commenting the issue, vice chancellor Thimme Gowda said that the expert committee will soon visit the colleges to decide on the affiliation.

"If any college is disaffiliated, students who have taken admission under government quota shall be provided seats in affiliated colleges. Also, information on affiliation of colleges will be displayed on BU's website."

On the derecognition of seven MEd colleges by the National Council of Teachers Education (NCTE), Thimme Gowda said that the varsity will look into the matter again. "We do not know if the decision taken up by the NCTE is based on the task force or expert committee report. These reports have to submitted to the varsity first and then should be communicated to NCTE. BU will go for another inspection in this regard," said Thimme Gowda.
