BANGALORE: A common complaint against Bangalore University is that it does not announce results on time and issue marks cards when needed. But surprisingly, over 80,000 marks cards are gathering dust at the University since 2012 as the students have not turned up to collect them.

The marks cards belong to undergraduate course students who studied at various colleges affiliated to Bangalore University. “As per university rules, we are supposed to issue marks cards only through the colleges. We have tried communicating to the colleges many times, but nothing happened,” said an official.

BU Registrar (evaluation) Ninge Gowda  said, “It is the duty of the colleges to get the marks cards from the university and issue them to students. But, over 453 colleges, whose students’ marks cards are with us, are acting as if they are not concerned.”

“When students approach their colleges, they easily blame the university. But, though we have alerted them many times, they did not bother to come and collect them,” said Prof Gowda.

Recently, BU had given a week’s deadline for colleges to collect the piled-up marks cards. “Even after the deadline, nobody came. So we have decided to send the marks cards to the colleges by next week,” said Prof Gowda.

Colleges need to send an acknowledgment to the University after receiving the marks cards. “Most of the pending marks cards are of repeaters. For freshers, the University sends the marks cards directly,” clarified Gowda.

The university is setting up a separate section to monitor marks cards and results. “It is our duty to conduct exams, evaluate and declare results. But colleges must come and collect marks cards,” he rued.

Truant Colleges

Some of the colleges that have not collected marks cards of their students are: New Horizon College, CMR Centre for Business Studies, Darshan College, ACS Degree College, IFIM College, SV College of Management Studies, RR Institute of Management Studies, Government First Grade College, Kadugodi, Spoorti College of Management Studies, Federal College of Management, Basaveshwara College of Science and Commerce, Abbaskhan College, BS College and Maharani College for Women.
