The Bangalore University Task Force cracked down on four B.Ed colleges in the city on Thursday, and found that they were non-functional at the time of inspection.

The Task Force, headed by Chairman H Karan Kumar,  conducted raids on Manjula Mallesh College of Education, Nagarbhavi, Bapu College of Education, Yeshwantpur, Regency College of Education, Vidyaranyapura, and Lourdes B.Ed College in Banaswadi.

To their surprise, the team officials found that there were no students or faculty on the campuses. Then they issued notices to the managements, directing them to appear before the panel with all necessary documents about the institutions.

“Two of the four BEd colleges had just two faculty members with no students, while the other two did not have both. Principals of the colleges did not respond to the committee members’ telephone calls, and did not make any efforts to be present in the colleges during the inspection,” Kumar said.

“The erring colleges have been asked to report to the committee with documents about the institutions and the number of students enrolled on Sunday or Monday, failing which they could be derecognised,” Kumar said.

The colleges have made full admissions with 100 students each, and most of them are non-Karnataka students, who have appeared only for the semester examinations. Kumar said 90 B.Ed colleges had been inspected and many of them were found to be unfit to continue.
