The Higher Education Department has clearly expressed its intention of implementing Bangalore University (BU) Task Force report, which recommends disaffiliation of 55 BEd colleges for alleged irregularities.

The department served a show-cause notice to the university on Thursday seeking an explanation as to why the Syndicate’s December 12, 2012 decision to give the colleges three months’ time before initiating action based on Local Inquiry Committee reports should not be cancelled.

“The task of inspecting quality and functioning of BEd colleges was entrusted to the task force which submitted its report on November 2. However, the Syndicate on December 12, resolved to grant affiliation for 2012-13 to these colleges, some of which do not even have National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) recognition. The colleges include those which were blacklisted by the Academic Audit Committee in 2009 and those which lost affiliation in 2010,” said Prakashrao Kesarkar, Undersecretary, Higher Education.

The show-cause notice said the government intended to annul Syndicate’s decision and implement the recommendations of the Task Force.
