BENGALURU: Bangalore University has decided to collect the convocation and examination fees of the final semester simultaneously to make it easy for students to apply for degree certificates. 

After a syndicate meeting approved this on Wednesday, Vice-Chancellor B Thimme Gowda said, “There are issues in the process (of applying for degree certificate). To avoid all these, we have come up with this measure.”

Prof Ninge Gowda, registrar, said they have introduced this measure following several complaints of colleges harassing students for degree certificates.

Now, once a student pays the fees, he or she can attend the convocation in person and collect the certificate, or it will be sent to the respective colleges, he said.

Thimme Gowda said the varsity has decided to investigate complaints that some full-time faculties are engaged in full-time courses at other colleges. “This is against rules. We have decided to identify such cases by alerting the colleges.”

He said the rule introduced by the varsity where the choice of selecting students does not rest with the Phd guides, but on the merit of the student has not gone down well with the guides of sociology and botany.

“Last year, we followed the same and some professors questioned this. We are conducting a separate counseling for sociology and botany,” said Thimme Gowda.

Following complaints of malpractice at the Bangalore Institute of Management Studies during an MBA examination on Tuesday, the university has cancelled the institute as an exam centre and shifted it to the Surana College in Kengeri.

“When we visited the college, we found the chief superintendent (principal of the college) absent, which itself is a violation,” said Ninge Gowda.
