BENGALURU: The state Higher Education Department is making major changes in university administration. A few days after the withdrawal of government nominees from university syndicates, it is now changing registrars of state-run universities.
In the first phase, registrars (administration) and registrar (evaluation) of Gulbarga University, Tumkur University, Janapada University, Kuvempu University, Shimogga, and Davanagere University have been changed and a few more are on the list. According to department officials, registrars of all state-run universities will change. Some transfers have been effected following allegations of corruption.
