No professor for English in Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University

Raipur: If you are planning to take admission in Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University for a degree in Hindi or English language, think twice.

While the Hindi department of the 47-year old varsity has only one professor since its establishment, the English department is still waiting for appointment of a professor.

The classes for both languages in the states largest university are being conducted by some unqualified teachers.

The total number of seat for MA course is 30 in English and 20 in Hindi. For M.Phil course then number of seats is 10 each for both languages.

The university was founded in 1964, and named after the first chief minister of erstwhile Madhya Pradesh. Initially, the varsity had courses in geography, psychology, linguistics, sociology and human sciences.

PRSU fails to get NAACs coveted A-grade again

Raipur: Little has changed for Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University (PRSU) in the last seven years. At least the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) grading suggests so. The NAAC has once again awarded-B grade to the PRSU, which highlights the sorry state of affairs in the reputed university.

The NAAC team had last visited PRSU in 2003-04, and most of the issues that it had then underlined still persist. The PRSU received 2.62 marks in the latest NAAC grading. According to NAACs guidelines, institute must obtain a minimum of 3.01 marks to get A-grade.

Dissatisfied with the NAACs grading, Vice- Chancellor, Professor SK Pandey said the councils report will be tabled in the senates meeting and immediate steps will be taken to remove all the obstacles hindering the universitys growth.
Pandey said the concerned departments would be directed to remove the flaws highlighted in the NAACs report inorder to enable the university to get A grade in future.

NAACs grade-A, a status symbol Experts stressed that NAACs grade-A add to the reputation of any institution. The grade also helps the college or university in getting bigger grants from the center. Observers also underlined that students passing out from a NAAC grade-A institute receive priority in job and also get numerous facilities in institutes funded by the union government.

University exams: Two flying squads for 130 centres

Raipur: The students wanting to cheat during Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University examination wont have to put in much effort for it.

While the university has decided to have 130 examination centres, which would house over one lakh 80 thousand examinees, it has formed just two flying squads to put a check on cheating.

As per the information obtained from the university, around 450 cases of cheating were formed in 2009 and 2010.
An increased number of candidates are likely to appear for the exams this year,hence the university had decided to have 18 additional centres. However, it has not made any increase in the number of flying squads.

Clarifying the stand, university registrar K K Chandrakar said that if the need was felt, they might increase the number of flying squads.The university examination began on Thursday with the LLB first year paper.

NET exam today, PRSU geared up

Raipur: The Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University (PRSU) has made all necessary arrangements as around 2691 candidates are ready to face the floor test in the prestigious UGC-NET examinations that are scheduled to be conducted on Sunday.
The university, which is the UGC centre in the city for the examinations, has made all preparations for smooth conduction of the examinations.

Apart from the university campus, the university has also established test centres at several other places in wake of the large number of applicants who will sit for the test.Notably, the number of applicants has seen a whopping rise compared to the last examination that was conducted in June this year, in which around 1900 students had applied.
University sources said that Hindi was the most sought after subject among the applicants this examination with a total of 386 applications.

It was followed by 232 in Commerce, 175 in Education and 121 in English.

Renovation, construction to be carried out in PRSU

Raipur: In Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University (PRSU), ten structures costing Rs 17.60 crore will be constructed. The faculty, staff and students of the university will have a new canteen now. After the start of the Academic Staff College, the refresher course for the teachers will also started.

In the meeting of the committee formed for the construction of the structures, it was decided that art building would be renovated and utility centre, science research laboratory, multi-storey apartments for teachers, staff quarters, cluster room, animal house and student recreation centre would be constructed. The Public Work Department (PWD) will be contacted in this regard. Permission has been given for the purpose. The engineering department is busy with the formalities. After the formalities, construction and renovation will start.

The art building of the university has not been repaired for the past four years. Its ceiling is cracking and its toilet is in bad shape. Its repair work started three years ago, but it disrupted when the then engineer Puran Singh was transferred to his old department and sub-engineer BP Bhanwar was sacked for some corruption-related issue.
The place where the Academic Staff College will be constructed has been selected, but some flaws have been found in the tendering process, which is why the work could not start for the past three years.

The canteen is next to the old cycle stand at the Pandit Shukla intersection in the campus, where, because of the crowd, students have to face many difficulties. Hence, it was decided that the canteen would be constructed on top of the dean of students welfare office. The construction of the canteen will begin in about one or two days.

Exam season over, PRSU starts announcing results

Raipur: The examination season is over and it is time for the students to get the result of their hard work as the Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University (PRSU) has started declaring the marks. PRSU examination department will be announcing results of BA (final), B Sc (Part I and II) and BCA (Part I, II, III) in two to three days.
The PRSU administration is trying declare results of all classes by June 30 in order to avoid the academic calendar from being affected.

This year, the exams continued till the second week of May due to which the universitys academic calendar was expected to have some adverse effects.After taking stock of the situation, both the higher education department and Governors House asked the PRSU to ensure that the results are announced on time.
Mark sheets still unavailable

The PRSU might be in the process of declaring results and it claims of announcing all results on time but the reality is that barring B Com (final) and Part- II marksheets of none of the classes have been made available.

While the students are waiting with bated breath for their results and college administrators shuttling in and out of the universitys examination department for the result booklet, it will be interesting to see how the PRSU lives up to its promise of not letting the academic calendar from getting delayed.

PRSU students to get admit cards from March 7

Raipur: Admit cards for the examinations of the Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University (PRSU) will be issued to students from March 7.

The Registrar of the University K K Chandrakar said that the students who are to appear for their exam on March 10 will be issued admit cards on a priority basis. He also said that the enrolment list will soon arrive from Indore.

No takers for university gold medals!

Raipur: It seems the charm of gold medals is no more among the toppers. According to a report, more than 600 gold medals for toppers of various courses in Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University (PRSU) still await their takers.The whopping count is due to the backlog of past 16 years as the scholars did not turn out to take their medals in the convocation ceremonies.

So much so that even though the PRSU authorities have made a fresh bid to distribute the medals by inviting applications from students through its website, the initiative is getting a cold shoulder from the scholars.Notably, the university had attracted severe criticism from several student unions for its apathy towards distributing these medals following which the authorities decided to distribute these medals again.

However, uncertainty still looms over the fete of these medals as despite the convocation date inching closer, university has not received the expected number of applications in this regard.

Central Jail turns examination centre

PRSU officials told Bhaskar that the prisoners also include a student who was booked for a criminal case after applying for university exams. Other 27 prisoners were already serving their jail terms, the officials said.

PRSU: More flying squads this exam, vigil on girls too

Raipur: With the annual examinations at the Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University (PRSU) just a few days away, the university has pulled up its socks to check cases of copying in the examinations.The working committee of the university met in this regard on Saturday to decide that the number of flying squads would be increased for a strict vigil during the examinations.

A surprising conclusion came out during the meeting when majority of the members suggested that girls were no behind the boys when it came to copying and hence, special vigil on them needed to be kept.Members said that out of all the cases of copying that came out last year, 65 per cent of them involved girl students.

The decision to increase the number of flying squads came after an internal review which pointed out that arrangement to check copying during previous years examinations did not prove to be enough. As many as 450 cases of copying were reported during the exams last year.

Although the numbers are thankfully less than the 469 cases that were registered in 2009, it still stands tall enough to force the varsity take efficient steps in this regard.

However, currently Dr.Madhulata Kerketta is the lone professor in the Hindi Department. She is assisted by linguists.
The English Department has no professor.Thus, the PRSU currently relies on linguists to teach postgraduate courses in Hindi and English.

According to university sources, a soon-to-be-held departmental research committe meeting will discuss the issue of Ph.D in both these subjects. A decision about which research centre should students be attached to for their Ph.D is likely to be taken in this meeting.
