The issue of bifurcating Bangalore University is still on. Though the bill, submitted to Governor H R Bhardwaj by the previous government, was returned with some objections, the present government is all set to convince him.

Following frequent mistakes in the announcement of results at the varsity, Higher Education Minister R V Deshpande has asked his department officials to look into the objections raised by the Governor and insisted on resubmitting the bill.

Deshpande said, “It seems Bangalore University has become overburdened with the number of colleges affiliated to it. So, we are looking at a permanent solution.”

“By considering the interest of the stakeholders of the University, we need to take a decision and we will discuss (this issue) with the students, faculty members and institutions before taking a final decision,” the minister said.

The file related to the university’s bifurcation is with the Principal Secretary of the department and it will be soon resubmitted to the Governor.

More than 650 colleges are affiliated to the university at present, Deshpande added.
