The Biju Patnaik University of Technology (BPUT) is taking steps to ensure that students enrolled in its post-graduate courses don’t take up jobs elsewhere.

The university has instructed the students taking admission into its Masters programme to refrain from “undertaking any gainful service or alternative employment” during their course period. The university has asked the students to provide an affidavit which has to be signed by their parents and and an executive magistrate.

The affidavit has to mention that the student will not join any alternative job while pursuing  post-graduate courses.  Senior officials of the BPUT said this step has been taken to ensure that the students take up their courses seriously. There have been instances of students ignoring their classes in order to pursue job or teaching profession in other B.Tech colleges.
