"Nagpur University agitates ineligible engineers", says academicians.

NU agitates ineligible engineers
Academicians led by the vice chancellor Vilas Sapkal for complying down to private engineering colleges and diluting academic standards of the university say that, Nagpur University is agitating ineligible engineers.

It is just a day after the varsity had cleared the alleged 'illegal' proposal of partial 'carry on' procedure. They said such rule has never been made in the history of the university. Such rules were made where students were granted admissions, but were not allowed to appear in the final exams.


However, some are in a plan to move to the judiciary against this decision.

GS Parasher former pro-vice chancellor of the varsity dispatched a letter to sapkal on Monday requesting him not to clear the illegal decision made by the academic council on Sunday.

He further asked him to keep this decision in remission using special powers under Section 14(6) of Maharashtra University Act, 1994.

He told media "Since authorities like Management and Academic Councils and Senate, mostly comprise those from private colleges, they will obviously take a decision that benefit their management. But the administration should remain firm in its decision. If the VC thinks the decision was not as per rules and regulations, he can cancel, defer or refer that decision to the chancellor".

"Academic Council should have clarified that this was the last time such provision of admitting the 'ineligible' students is being made. None of the members have said so, and such wrong trends will continue in the future as well," he grieved deeply. "Exceptions can't be made into rule and 2001 decision was indeed an exception made under certain circumstances. This time, decision was surely made to fill the coffers with private colleges facing a huge shortage of students. Nobody had given thought to what kind of engineers we will be churning out. This decision can best be described as an 'escape route' to benefit the colleges by wrongly interpreting rules framed AICTE and UGC," he added.

Also, the academicians said "all members of this faculty, including Kshirsagar and Agrawal, represented private colleges that had the largest share of failed students among 3,000 slated to benefit. While Kshirsagar hails from Priyadarshini College, Agrawal works for Bapurao Deshmukh College in Sewagram."
