After a strike and protest from the students against the errors in evaluation process and marks cards, Bangalore University, Vice-Chancellor, B Thimme Gowda, has issued a notice to the evaluators to explain about the mistakes.
In July 2013, BU has announced the results of the regular degree examinations. In that, around 150 students found mistakes in marks cards, and 1,000 B.Com students were marked as absent.
As per the issue above, university put faculty on notice, that they could be suspended or dismissed, if mistakes continue to happen.
While speaking to media, Thimme Gowda said, "We have issued a show-cause notice to all the erring lecturers. The notice asks the evaluators to explain why they have committed mistakes. We have also warned them that if such mistakes repeats, BU will not hesitate to suspend or dismiss them from service. As a first step, I have convened a meeting of principals on 21 Oct, when I will ask them to convey the message to lecturers to be careful while evaluating answer sheets,"
"University is getting bad name due the mistakes of the evaluators," said Gowda.
Commenting on the 1,000 B.Com students issue, "The scanners had not scanned the answer sheets properly. As a result, the students were marked as absent. I have asked the scanners to do their work properly or not take up assignments from us," said Gowda.
Of all the above process, BU has appointed one of the faculty members to take care of the errors in evaluation process.
Prof Mahadevappa has been appointed as a special officer to take care of the evaluation process of answer sheets.
