The 49th annual convocation of Bangalore University (BU) will most likely be held on May 20, 22 or 24.
The convocation, which was to be held on April 28, was postponed as the chief guest Dr C Rangarajan, Chairman of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council, could not attend due to personal problems, BU authorities said.
“We will announce a fresh date after discussion with Chancellor H R Bhardwaj. Former Supreme Court judge Justice Rajendra Babu has accepted our invitation to be the chief guest,” said BU Vice-chancellor Dr B Thimme Gowda.
Usually, the convocation is held in February/March. Even last year, it was held in July due to the delay in appointing a Vice-chancellor.
