BANGALORE: After a long wait, the Bangalore University’s (BU) Examination Adalat was inaugurated on Thursday on the Central College campus to deal with grievances related to valuation, revaluation, issue of marks cards and declaration of results.

Inaugurating the adalat, Vice-Chancellor Dr N Prabhu Dev made a few remarks and announcements related to the adalat’s functioning.

The adalat that is all set to begin work next week will be dealing with over 4,500 pending cases since the year 2000.

“This Examination Adalat is one of my dream projects, apart from the introduction of smart cards and the Bangalore School of Economics.

We will be dealing with all the cases that have been pending for a decade.

There are around 4,392 applications pending and we hope the next administration begins with a clean slate,” he said.

He explained on how the exam section has been instructed that the judges’ order is going to be final and the hearings will be held every alternate day.

“On the non-hearing day, the results will be tabulated and updated on their websites.

The colleges and students can be represented in person or through an authorised counsel.

We hope that the principals of affiliated colleges do not have an indifferent attitude towards the exam adalat,” he explained.

While senior counsel of Karnataka High Court M T Nanaiah, lauded the effort to bring about transparency, the presiding officer and former HC Registrar Basavarya said that there is a need to evolve some new methods of sorting out the problems.

“To deal with the sorry state of affairs, we do not have any ready-made solutions.

However, we are looking at evolving new methods to come up with solutions.

The quotas and other problems have not been sorted out in the last couple of years.

This has caused a lot of issues, which we aim at solving,” Basavarya said.

A retired district judge and the presiding officer will be in-charge of the adalat.

The Registrar (Evaluation) T R Subramanya has said that May 30 will be the last day for colleges to send their particulars of grievances to the adalat
