The Bangalore University Academic Council on Monday rejected the enhancement of seats for BCom and BBM courses in Jain Degree College for this academic year.
Based on the Local Inquiry Committee (LIC) report which stated that Jain College had allegedly involved in tampering Bangalore University documents, the Council decided to reject the proposal of seat enhancement.
The committee had visited the college and recommended enhancement of BCom seats from 160 to 360 and BBM seats from 160 to 400.
However, when the matter came up in the House, there were objections regarding the seat enhancement and a member demanded that the college be punished for the alleged tampering of the University documents.
After a heated discussion, it was decided not to provide any seat enhancement to Jain Degree College for this academic year. The same recommendation will be tabled before the Syndicate meeting on Tuesday.
Council member H Karan Kumar, who had submitted his resignation on Saturday, was present at the meeting as his resignation was not yet accepted by the government.
