Bangalore University is becoming more strict about the performance and quality of education in its affiliate colleges.

To alert the colleges on those lines, and also to strengthen the Local Inquiry Committees (LICs), the university has decided to bring in new mechanisms which need to be followed by the Committees at the time of their visit to the colleges. The Syndicate and Academic Council meeting held on Monday approved the new mechanisms for LICs. As per the new mechanism, more weightage will be given to quality and infrastructure.

After the meeting, Vice-Chancellor B Thimme Gowda told reporters,”We have divided 100 marks in four categories --- faculty-30, infrastructure-30, processing part-20 and results-20.”

“This year, we have constituted 26 LICs and the visit will start from next month. The committees should follow the new mechanism,” he said.

However,  the mechanism is being taken up on a trial basis this year, and following the suggestions, the updated version will be implemented from the next academic year.

Meanwhile, it is a must for the institutions to apply for fresh affiliation to secure 40 marks, renewal of affiliation to get 50 marks, permanent affiliation 60 marks and renewal of permanent affiliation to get 65 marks from LICs, he said.

Mini Convocation

The university approved a proposal to conduct a mini convocation for the candidates of various faculties in absence. The Syndicate meeting also decided to distribute books on Swami Vivekananda to postgraduate students.
