Lokayukta on Friday directed Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad, to take stern action against colleges not sending requisite papers to university to issue provisional certificates to students.
“Colleges cannot act according to their whims and fancies. JNTU, being the apex institution to whom all the said colleges are affiliated, is directed to take stern action and if necessary coercive steps against the defaulting colleges,” orders issued by AP Lokayukta Justice B.Subhashan Reddy said. Colleges were given a month’s time to comply with this order. In pursuance to the orders dated Feb 28, Lokayukta directed the vice-chancellor of JNTUH to file a report to Lokayukta before March 1 with regard to MBA and engineering students not receiving provisional certificates from JNTU.
