Media coverage of Central University of Kerala, Kasaragod Kerala, Kerala
Transfer triggers tension on university campusThe Palayam campus of the University of Kerala on Thursday witnessed unruly scenes following the issue of transfer orders to a Section Officer in the universitys establishment section.
On Thursday afternoon the Joint Registrar holding charge of the Registrar issued orders transferring P.P. Thomas, Section Officer (SO) in the establishment section, to the credit-and-semester examination section.
Soon afterwards activists of the Leftist Kerala University Employees Union took out a protest march alleging that the transfer was done by the Vice-Chancellor under pressure from the United Democratic Front Syndicate members. With activists of the Congress-affiliated Staff Union also gathering in strength, the stage looked set for a clash. A short while later a large posse of police personnel was deployed at the entrance to the Senate building.
Vice-Chancellor A. Jayakrishnan, however, told that Mr. Thomas was transferred as the Chief Information Commissioner had in February passed orders slapping a fine of Rs.10,000 each on Mr. Thomas and a Joint Registrar for providing wrong information to a Right to Information Act query given by a retired university employee.
The Chief Information Commissioner in his order said the information provided by Mr. Thomas was incorrect, incomplete and misleading. Now there is an appeal against that order in the High Court and this is the very section that should prepare the statement of facts for that case. How can Mr. Thomas be the SO there? I was only acting within my statutory powers, Dr. Jayakrishnan said.
A member of the Congress-affiliated Staff Union has been posted as SO in the establishment section in place of Mr. Thomas.A custom
UDF Syndicate member Jyothikumar told that the RTI-query issue was one of the reasons why Mr. Thomas was transferred. It is a custom in the university that whenever there is a change in government and in the formation that has the majority in the Syndicate, there are changes in the personnel in the administration (establishment) section. When the
Left controlled the Syndicate they saw to it that their man was in the right seat, he pointed out.
General secretary of the Employees Union K. Mohanakumar told that this kind of transfers was being done so that the Syndicate can do a Calicut University on Kerala University. The Vice-Chancellor was blackmailed by two UDF Syndicate members into issuing Thursdays transfer order, he accused.
Strike in Institute of ManagementStudents in the Alappuzha centre of the Institute of Management of Kerala, a business school under the tutelage of the University of Kerala, have launched an indefinite strike alleging mental harassment of some of them who had raised their voices against alleged financial irregularities in the Institute.
According to sources, the irregularities were noticed by the University Audit wing, which found that money collected from students under the pretext of improving educational facilities and infrastructure was being diverted in various centres of the Institute.
Though the exact nature of the irregularities are yet to be made public, it is learnt that money collected thus from 2003 onwards was being deposited in joint accounts of the students and the staff, from where it was allegedly used for illegal purposes.
According to the students, who did not want their names to be revealed for obvious reasons, each of them was asked to pay Rs.10,000. An investigation by the University Audit wing is said to have found out that over Rs.60 lakh was amassed in the last three years. While Rs.18 lakh was collected in 2008-2009, Rs. 40 lakh was collected in 2009-2010 and in 2010-2011, Rs.16 lakh was collected.
The Audit wing found out that the money thus collected was being diverted and the University immediately issued orders saying that money should not be collected from the students. But this academic year, they have again forced the students to pay the money, and have collected money even from scheduled caste and scheduled tribe students, one of the agitating students said.
The students, who are planning to intensify the agitation and to pressurize the University into initiating action, including a comprehensive probe into the entire financial affairs of all centres of the Institute, are alleging that the students who raised their voice against the issue, citing the University order not to collect money, were being targeted and mentally harassed by the Centre authorities, who were not available for comment.
The Institute, which has its headquarters in the State capital, provides Masters as well as doctoral programmes in business management in addition to various other certificate courses in centres located in various districts including Alappuzha, Thiruvananthapuram and Kollam.
Varsity flouts faculty normsSkeletons are tumbling one after the other out of the cupboard of the Central University of Kerala, Kasargod, over the appointments of faculty to its various departments.
A document that this newspaper has access to reveals that an ineligible candidate was appointed at the Animal Science Department of the Central University overlooking eligible candidates.
Ms L. Divya who was selected as faculty in the Animal Science Department of Central University of Kerala and is currently serving there, did not qualify the National Eligibility Test (NET) necessary for being appointed to the faculty, according to the documents released by the Central University following an RTI application.
Ms Divya was awarded a PhD, which is considered in lieu of NET for faculty appointment, by the Kerala University on July 3, 2010.
The advertisement for the appointment of the faculty positions was published by the Central University on June 11, 2010 stating that the experience and qualifications of candidates would be reckoned as on June 1, 2010. It is thus clear that Ms Divya didnt have the necessary qualifications for being appointed as per the Central Varsity advertisement.
The minutes also reveal that Ms Divyas supervising teacher for her PhD was Dr Oommen V. Oommen, head (retired), Department of Zoology, University of Kerala, who is the adjunct faculty at the Central University.
Dr Oommen also sat through the selection process of the Animal Sciences department at the Central varsity, in which Ms Divya appeared and was selected. Dr Oommen V. Oommens presence in the committee amounted to conspiracy of subverting the selection process, it was pointed out.v
Central varsity stonewalls Alathur MPs RTI queryThe Central University of Kerala at Kasargod, which is mired in allegations of wrongdoing in its faculty appointments, disregarded a Right to Information (RTI) application by Alathur MP P.K. Biju and curtly told him that RTI is not about seeking answers and asking questions. It is more about inspection of documents or records or taking notes, extracts or certified copies of the documents-records.
In the reply furnished on Dec. 12 by the university, 10 questions met with the above answer and the MP had to satisfy himself with the same for several questions in subsequent RTI queries too. The MP is now planning to take up the issue with the Lok Sabha Privileges Committee.
Interestingly, the RTI queries were answered nearly three and a half months after the queries were submitted, it is learnt.
Despite the delay, answers like the information sought for is not held by the PIO, were given. There are also replies like the information sought for is so voluminous that it would definitely cause a lot of pressure on the available fiscal and human resources of the university.
According to candidates, adjunct faculties in Animal Sciences and Genomics Sciences departments, Mr Oommen V. Oommen and Prof. Ramesh respectively, had sat through their faculty selection process.
However, their names were missing from the list provided by the university in reply to the RTI
application, which points to serious foul play in the selection process of the university that was set up by an Act of Parliament.
It has also been alleged that candidates close to the adjunct faculties were reportedly appointed in
the respective departments.
