BENGALURU: The excessive number of marks cards printed by Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences Bengaluru (RGUHS) has come under the scanner of the Accountant General’s office.


The audit report for the financial year 2013-14 (which is the latest) shows that the university printed at least one lakh excess blank marks cards — double the requirement for that academic year. It also raises doubts that these may have been misused.


The director of the government’s Accounts Department has now written to the university authorities seeking an explanation along with necessary documents.

 
The audit report also notes that the additional marks cards that were printed have been dumped in a godown. While questioning the need to print so many blank marks cards, it also says there are no bills, documents, newspaper advertisements or tender details.

There are also no documents regarding a request by the varsity’s examination department for printing of excess marks cards, it said.


“There are chances that these marks cards may be misused. The University says it is not using those marks cards, but a different series. There is no clarity,” the report says.
