According to the Local Inquiry Committee (LIC) reports, the syndicate members have recommended the the university should give fresh affiliation to 30 colleges and renew the affiliation of 500 old colleges.

According to the reports, the University has received 550 applications in total. Of that, 502 were seeking renewal of affiliation and permanent affiliation and 48 applications sought fresh affiliation.

Vice Chancellor Dr B Thimme Gowda said: "The majority of colleges that applied for fresh affiliation were from rural areas. We have been liberal in providing affiliation to rural and women's colleges."

The University has come across two colleges which had the same principal.

The LIC headed by Prof Subramanian of the Sericulture Department visited Mangalore Institute of Management Studies and MES Gurukula degree college for women. Both were managed by the same principal and the syndicate passed a resolution to renew the affiliation only for Mangalore Institute of Management Studies.
