C.N.Annadurai, affectionately called Peraringar Anna, the former Chief Minister of Tamilnadu during 1967-1968, was an erudite scholar, an astute politician, a wise statesman, powerful orator, revolutionary writer, fine novelist, noted playwright, great social reformer, an ardent rationalist, a staunch socialist, a great diplomat, a true democrat, an eminent leader and, above all, an affectionate elder brother (Anna) to his people. It was Anna who named the Madras State Tamil Nadu. In 1962, Annadurai launched his own party Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam to work for the social justice and rapidly gained popular support.

Media coverage of Anna University, Coimbatore Tamil Nadu, Tamil Nadu
No marks for attendance in Anna varsityIf marks were the only incentive for many engineering students to log 100 per cent attendance in class, the situation may change soon. The Anna University has done away with the variable part of the exam results that is determined by the number of classes attended every semester.
Till now, five per cent of the marks scored by every student depended on his-her attendance in class. This was in addition to the mandatory 75 per cent attendance for every course, which still remains in place.
The decision was taken after a Syndicate meeting held on Monday. The rule will be applicable with immediate effect in the four colleges under Anna University.
The decision, said M. Sekar, Dean, College of Engineering, Guindy, was taken after the heads of various engineering department and lecturers suggested that it was getting increasingly difficult for them to keep track of every student's attendance. “Every student goes either for sports activities, competitions and fests which comprise at least 15 per cent of the total attendance. Teachers have said that once students have the necessary 75 per cent minimum attendance, there is no need to keep count further.”
Students are quite happy with the new rule as many who often scored good marks in both internal and external exams lost out on marks only because their attendance was not above 95 per cent. Until now, students who had 95-100 per cent attendance was awarded the full 5 per cent marks while those with the minimum 75 per cent attendance would not get any marks. “The attendance score often influences teachers marking our internals. Many students would attend classes only because they wanted the marks and not because they were interested,” said Rajendra, a student of the Madras Institute of Technology.
“Does it mean we are allowed to bunk 25 per cent of the classes,” asked another student, who pointed out that these ‘marks devoted to attendance' often made him attend classes which he would skip otherwise. Now, 45 per cent of the student's score depend on her performance in internal exams.
Teachers, on the other hand, are quite happy with the new rule. A lecturer in the mechanical department of Anna University said, “It is a pain to have students who are not interested in attending classes but do so just for the sake of it. Teachers need to find other ways of urging students to attend classes by making them more engaging.”
Colleges assn plea on e-journal normThe association of management of colleges affiliated to Coimbatore Anna University has moved the Madras high court to quash the new stipulation of the All-India.
Council for Technical Education (AICTE), making mandatory subscription to e-journals for grant of approval to the colleges.
When the petition filed by the association came up for hearing before Justice N. Paul Vasanthakumar, counsel for AICTE sought two weeks to file counter and also submitted that the time for submission of application was extended till January 15, 2012. The judge posted to January 3, further hearing of the petition.
Senior counsel K. Doraisamy submitted that in the approval process handbook for 2012-13, the AICTE had made mandatory subscription to e-journals for approval of engineering, management and architecture colleges.
Private institutions to be under ESI, says HCThe judge said the argument that aided educational institutions were exempted cannot be a valid objection.
The Madras High Court has upheld the state government order to bring private educational institutions under the purview of Employees State Insurance (ESI) Act.
Justice K. Chandru dismissed a batch of petitions from Association of Management of Coimbatore Anna University Affiliated colleges and four others, challenging the GO dated November 26, 2010.
The judge said the argument that aided educational institutions were exempted cannot be a valid objection.
The proviso to section 1 (4) of the ESI Act exempts an establishment belonging to or under the control of the government whose employees are otherwise in receipt of benefits substantially similar or superior to the benefits provided under the Act.
The statute itself contemplates exempting the establishment owned by the government from the purview of the Act with a rider that the employees must receive substantially similar or superior benefits provided under the Act.
The same conditions were also available to a private employer for the purpose of getting exemption, the judge added.
The judge said that the fact that contributions payable towards ESI was not conceived while fixing fee structure in respect of private educational institutions and therefore, the present notification imposing unreasonable burden on them cannot be accepted as any legal plea.
Anna University delays resultsThousands of students from several engineering colleges affiliated to the Anna University, Coimbatore are left in a lurch as the university has not yet published the semester exam results.
Engineering college sources said that the evaluation for the semester examination, held for students studying in colleges affiliated to Anna University, Coimbatore during December - January, was done on January 22.
Usually the university publishes the results within 10 days of evaluating the answer sheets, but this time the results have been inordinately delayed, the source said.
An engineering college head in Coimbatore said that students were asking them about the results but they had no answer. When I called up Anna University to enquire about the results, they said it would be published only after the university convocation (February 20). If this is the case then how can the students apply for re-totalling and appear for the next semester exam? the college chairman asked, adding that the university should provide adequate time to students to prepare for the next exams.
University authorities, meanwhile, said that they were busy preparing for the university convocation, which had delayed the publication of results.
According to vice-chancellor of the university prof. K. Karunakaran, the university was handling examinations, affiliation and other administrative works with a limited staff, which was another reason for the delay.
We have confusions in the grading system which took place during my predecessor R. Radhakrishnans period, these are being sorted out. However, the results will be published in a couple of days, he assured.
Anna University honours Stalin, AR Rahman and Moon Man AnnaduraiThe DMKs youth wing leader and Tamil Nadu Deputy Chief Minister MK Stalin, music maestro and Oscar winner, AR Rahman and the Moon Man, Mylswamy Annadurai, uniquely shared honours on the same dais here this evening as the Anna University, Indias largest technical University, conferred on each of them Degree of Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa).
At a glittering function at the Madras University Centenary Auditorium in Chennai, Stalin was conferred the honorary doctorate for his unique contributions to governance and social development, Rahman for his innovative and creative talent in taking Indian music to the global stage and Mylswamy Annadurai for his immense contribution to space science as Project Director of ISROs Space Mission Chandraayan.
While the Governor and the Anna University s Chancellor, SS Barnala presided over the Special Convocation as part of the late DMK leader CN Annadurais Centenary Celebrations, the huge hall was packed with political VIPs and others including Union Textiles Minister, Dayanidhi Maran, Telecom Minister A Raja, and DMK MP, Ms. Kanimozhi.
However, conspicuous by their absence was Stalins father and Chief Minister, M Karunanidhi, himself, who earlier on Saturday left for Bangalore to participate in the unveiling of the Tamil poet-saint Thiruvalluvars statue there on Aug 9. Also, Stalins elder brother and Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers, MK Azhagiri, was not to be seen at the function.
PIL against Coimbatore Anna varsityCHENNAI: A public interest writ petition to restrain the Anna University-Coimbatore from permitting some of its affiliated engineering colleges to offer B.Sc, M.Sc and M.S. courses and admit students for those unauthorised courses, has been filed in the Madras High Court.
A vacation bench comprising justice R S Ramanathan and justice N Kirubakaran admitted the PIL filed by advocate N Raja Senthoor Pandian on behalf of social activist Varaaki, who heads a service organisation Indian Makkal Mandram.
The petitioner contended that in flagrant violation of the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) Regulations, vice-chancellor of AU-Coimbatore had allowed some institutions, including Bannariammam Engineering College, Kongu Engineering College, Athiaman Engineering College and KSR Engineering College, to offer these courses.
This, inspite of the fact that the AICTE had accorded recognition to these engineering colleges after verifying the availability of infrastructural facilities such as open space, built-up area and playground. Without any additional amenities, these colleges have now been permitted to offer non-technical degree and masters degree programmes, the petitioner said.
Similarly, many engineering colleges had admitted hundreds of students for MBA courses last year though they had no additional faculty on hand. Teachers handled both MBA and MCA courses, he said, adding that the vice-chancellor had "ridiculed the university system and higher education."
Besides assailing the university for imposing additional financial burden on institutions for English language teaching and SAP software, Varaaki said over Rs 2 crore was wastefully spent on sprucing up the leased university premises, for which the authorities paid Rs 14 lakh as monthly rent.
The petitioner also wanted the court to restrain a six-member committee, constituted by the vice-chancellor, from inspecting technical institutions and recommending autonomy status to them.
Varaaki sought an interim injunction restraining technical institutions under AU-Coimbatore from admitting students for the present academic year, and to direct the AICTE and the University Grants Commission to form expert committees to go into the irregularities and illegalities in the conduct of technical institutions under the AU-Coimbatore.
Anna University (Coimbatore) Vice Chancellor Dr R Radhakrishnan suspended by Tamil Nadu Government
Monday, August 31, 2009 15:27 IST
Chennai: The Tamil Nadu government today suspended Anna University (Coimbatore) Vice Chancellor Dr R Radhakrishnan, following allegations of corruption against him.
The state advocate general PS Raman informed the Madras high court of the suspension. The court had sought the views of the government on the matter and whether a FIR had been filed?
Recording the submission made by Raman, a division bench, comprising chief justice HL Gokhale and justice D Murugesan disposed of a petition filed by an advocate S Sivapandi, charging the vice chancellor with allegedly violating provisions of the University Act and accumulating wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income, among other things.
Raman said the government, after careful consideration, permitted the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption (DVAC) to register a case against Radhakrishnan.
The DVAC had registered a case under Sec 7 and 13(2), read with Sec 13(1)(a), 13(1)(d) and 13(1)(e) of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
The advocate general said Radhakrishnan would remain suspended till completion of of the investigation.
Stating that in their view, there was nothing further to be done on the matter, the bench observed that the government was looking into the allegation and disposed of the petition.
The bench rejected the petitioner's request to keep the matter pending in court till the DVAC files the final report, holding that it would amount to monitoring the investigation.
The judges said they had no reason to presume that the investigations would not be carried out in accordance with the law.
