Bangalore University (BU) has faced up to the Higher Education Department by defending the December 12 Syndicate resolution to give erring BEd colleges three months’ time.

BU Registrar (Administration) T D Kemparaju on Thursday submitted a four-page reply to the government’s show-cause notice that sought an explanation on why the Syndicate resolution that states “action would be taken as per local inquiry committee (LIC) reports” should not be annulled.

“The Task Force report has been accepted along with the Academic Council resolutions as per Section 59(9) and (17) of the Karnataka State Universities Act. Further, as per Section 63(2), only the Syndicate has the authority to decide matters pertaining to affiliation or disaffiliation by giving an opportunity for the concerned colleges to explain. Moreover, reports or recommendations by committees constituted by lawful authorities will become the basis for such decisions. If any decision is taken based on reports submitted by committees with no legality (reference to Task Force), it can be questioned in court,” the reply stated.

Task Force Chairman H Karan Kumar termed the reply as ‘confusing, evasive and irrelevant’.
