VTU Warns Affiliated Colleges to Follow Prescribed Norms

By Malavikka

A non-compliance with rules has been spotted from the affiliated colleges of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) with regards to the one-time exit scheme for non-credit based choice system (Non-CBCS) students. The varsity has now realised that colleges have failed to implement the system appropriately and has issued a diktat.


What is the non-compliance issue?

The affiliated colleges of VTU, while collecting the examination fee for the one-time exit scheme students, also collected fees for the succeeding semester and listed them for the December-January 2018 examinations.

This means, they have not paused to check if the student had cleared the one time exam but collecting fees before hand.
