university college

Yet another controversy has sprung up involving the prestigious Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU). After the controversy surrounding its vice chancellor Dr H. Maheshappas educational qualifications, its now university officials who are in the dock for alleged irregularities in awarding tenders related to the development of the ambitious VTU Institute of Advanced Technology campus at the birth place of Sir M. Visvesvaraya, Muddenahalli in Chikkaballapur district.

According to the documents accessed through the Right to Information (RTE), on July 2, 2011, VTU invited tenders worth Rs 37.73 crore for the development of its Institute of Advanced Technology campus at Muddenahalli, which includes construction of post-graduate blocks, a hostel and dining-room building. As per government orders, all tenders exceeding Rs 10 crore should be provided in K-W 4 format. But according to the documents accessed through RTI, VTU invited tenders under K-W 5 format (which is for tenders under Rs 10 crore). Even though the tender committee of the estate board of the university opposed accepting tenders called under K-W 5, the university issued work orders to the contractors through this format.

The documents reveal that at the estate committee meeting where the tender issue was brought for ratification, PWD superintendent engineer Vinayak Sugur had requested the finance officer of VTU to verify with the procurement cell of the government the use of K-W 5 format. Committee chairman Prof Syed Shakeeb Ur Rahaman and other members had also observed that agencies had quoted exorbitant rates. In the estate board meeting held on March 30, 2012 to evaluate the financial bids, it was suggested that all the tenders be rejected and new tenders called for. The committee had also observed that the decision to entrust the work when no progress had been made in clearing the land, would be irregular. An officer close to the developments told that despite this the work order has been issued to a contractor from Andhra Pradesh, flouting the rules.

An officer of the higher education department says that the gap between opening of the first cover and the second cover should not be more than 60 days and if the time gap exceeds 60 days, the tender must be re-invited. At first they gave just 33 days against 45 days to apply for the tender. Now, after 10 months, a work order is issued, he said. VTU V-C Dr H.Maheshappa was not available for comment.

Visvesvaraya Technological University will explore tie-ups at Global Investors Meet

BELGAUM: Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU- Belgaum) will participate in the Global Investors Meet (GIM)-2012, being organized by the state government from June 6 to 8 at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre.

In a release, vice-chancellor H Maheshappa said this event will provide opportunities for the VTU to explore tie-ups and collaborations with other leading Indian and foreign education providers and research organizations. The VTU is always looking forward to create a culture of innovation in engineering education and research.

Mangalore University set to reduce result processing time

MANGALORE: The results processing cycle time of Mangalore University will get a leg up in time for the odd-semester examinations for both graduate and post-graduate courses to be held in October 2012. The university, which has already computerised its results processing, will take the next step in this direction by allowing its 197 affiliated and constituent colleges to post examination application forms and internal assessment marks of students online.

At present, the university manually handles examination application forms of more than 85,000-odd students as well as their internal assessment marks sent by the respective colleges. The staff in evaluation section of the university has to enter it manually and university authorities are accountable for mistakes committed during this process. But, this is set to change with the colleges using the university website to upload the data and eliminate errors.

Vice-Chancellor TC Shivashankara Murthy told that the university would arrange for exclusive training sessions for principals of constituent and affiliated colleges sometime in second week of June. This is to train them on how to upload examination application forms duly signed by the students as well as their respective internal assessment marks, he said, adding the process would vastly increase the efficiency of evaluation section.

P S Yadapadithaya, registrar (evaluation) said the agency that has developed the software for computerised results processing of the university has also developed the software for this latest initiative. We will issue a password to all principals during the training, which they are at liberty to change at a later date, he said, adding data once uploaded by respective colleges would be available seamlessly with the computer section of the university.

Hitherto, the internal assessment marks dispatched by the colleges was keyed in by one clerk and verified by three others for accuracy and was a cumbersome process, he said. The software for uploading examination application forms and internal assessment marks has been tried and tested; he said adding that the university henceforth would be in a position to announce results of UG and PG examinations accurately and at an early date.

This is to train them on how to upload examination application forms duly signed by the students as well as their respective internal assessment marks.

VTU to increase foreign intake

Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) is planning to admit foreign students at its campuses in Belgaum, Mysore and Bangalore. Although other colleges affiliated to VTU have foreign students, the three campuses did not have any.
Vice-chancellor Dr H Maheshappa said the varsity is tying up with Education Council of India (EdCIL) in this regard.
We are signing an MoU with them, which will ensure that we have students from different countries joining our courses, he said. The Belgaum-based university is aiming to admit 100 foreign students for their undergraduate, post-graduate, MBA and MCA courses in the coming academic year.

We have been working on this for the last few months and are in the final stages of finalising this, Maheshappa said. The varsity is looking at attracting students from countries such as Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and Australia.
While for some foreign students, the government will sponsor their education, for others the fee structure will be higher than that of regular students.

We need to cater to many factors, including the foreign students lifestyle, for which the fee will be higher. However, we are still working out the details, he said.

Although infrastructure will not be a major concern, the university will have to recruit staff to take this initiative forward. The MoU will be signed in Belgaum in the coming week. Currently VTU has around 3 lakh students on its rolls.
Answer scripts e-mailed

As part of the pilot project, VTU has e-mailed the answer scripts of recently conducted examination to students, who had applied for it. A fee of `500 per answer script per subject was charged. The pilot was conducted in all regions.
If the response increases, we may decide to put it up on a portal, where students can view it since it will not be possible to e-mail the copies to many students, a university official said. This project is part of VTUs move to reform the examination system.

Students opt for quality over free education

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has launched free supernumerary quota engineering seats from this academic year with the aim of providing free technical education to meritorious students from poor sections of society.

But in Karnataka, due to the excess engineering colleges and poor quality of technical education offered in many institutes, even the non-meritorious students got the benefit of this scheme.

According to the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) officials, a student who has secured a Common Entrance Test (CET) engineering rank of 58,287 has also got this benefit. Many students who were eligible for this scheme refused the benefit of the free seat to join the good colleges.

According to the KEA officials, Sahebagoud Kanamuchanal, who has secured the 58,287th rank in CET engineering, has selected the last seat available under this category at Government Engineering College, Bellery district.

He has obtained 59-180 in CET Physics Chemistry and Math-ematics (PCM) and 116-300 in II PUC PCM subjects. Vyshak M, who selected a seat before the Sahebagoud Kanamuc-hanal under this category, has secured only 45-180 in CET PCM subjects.

According to the officials, 184 students below the CET ranking of 30,000 have got the benefit of the scheme, which was exclusively launched with the goal of supporting meritorious students.Speaking to this newspaper, a senior officer of the KEA informed that earlier it was decided that candidates above CET ranking of 25,000 will only be allowed to select seats under this category.

But later it was decided to extend the benefit to all those who have secured CET ranking.

Hundreds of seats are still vacant. Students were not ready to join colleges where there is no good infrastructure and the placement record is bad, he said. Many students who got seats under this scheme preferred good colleges instead of opting for free seats, he said.

Its a shame for VTU

Experts feel that it is a shame for the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) to have colleges in which students are not ready to study even if the government offers free seats.

Dr. Ramesh Ray, an academician, said in the beginning there was a mad rush for the free seats. This shows that if colleges do not offer quality education, students are not ready to join even education is offered free of cost. VTU should think about strengthening the colleges, he said

VTU schedule has students sore

Aug. 6: The Visvesvaraya Technological University s (VTU) decision to start the first semester BE classes before the end of the CET casual vacancy round has dismayed thousands of students who were hoping to have a shot at changing their courses and colleges.

Students who want to attend Comed-K counselling are also unhappy with VTU for starting classes so early. In a circular dated July 28, VTU directed all 188 engineering colleges of the state to start their first semester BE classes from September 5. But students feel it should have taken into consideration the revised CET engineering counselling time-table before issuing it, maintaining that they may now have to miss classes to participate in the casual vacancy round which will be held between August 30 and September 16.

Sharath S.K., who has selected a seat in a city college, points out that most students turn up for the casual vacancy round in the hope that they may get a better college and course as hundreds of seats are surrendered after the admission round. If VTU does not postpone its first semester classes many of us may be forced to miss the casual vacancy round and also the COMED-K casual vacancy round which is scheduled for the last week of September, he laments.

Officers of the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) say they are not responsible for the confusion as the university vice chancellor is on the KEA governing body and is aware of the counselling dates they set. At first CET engineering counselling was to go on only till September 15, but was later extended by a day. This revised timetable has been approved by the higher education department.
The Visvesvaraya Technological University had postponed its classes when counselling was delayed last year, they recall.

Multi-cr software scam hits VTU

The Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU) finds itself once again in hot water with the audit committee which inspected its accounts finding that it has spent crores on software it did not need over the last few years.

Even more shockingly, although the committee, which termed the purchase of the software as wasteful and infructuous submitted its report to the higher education department in January 2010, no action has been taken by the government as yet against the VTU.

The university spent Rs 1.40 crore on buying gynax software from M-s Liquid Krystal for an online learning programme, which was never used by its students, the report said. Under the terms of the agreement Liquid Krystal was supposed to prepare an online course software for various subjects using the gynax web platform for all VTU students.

While the university paid Rs 1,40,34,500 in three installments in 2008 to the company, a survey in 2009 revealed that the students were not even aware of the existence of the gynax online learning programme and had not made use of it, the report added.

The committee found that the Intellisuite software of the microelectronics mechanical system, which the VTU bought for another `42.33 lakh from Ms. BIGTECH of Bengaluru in 2007, was also not used by its students.

The audit report came down hard on the university for spending about Rs 26.25 lakh on buying a campus automation university management software in January 2007 for improving its communication with its 121 affiliated colleges and then not bothering to see the project through successfully.

The project was a total failure as the colleges said in their report to the university that it was not functioning at all. Even after the colleges gave their report, the VTU did not set right the defects and the project became defunct, the committee deplored.

It said the purchase of Smart Interactive White Boards was a huge waste as well, as although they cost the university `36.59 lakh , they were of no use to it.

The matter needs detailed investigation to fix responsibility for the lapses and the loss caused to university, the committee stressed.

Did VTU V-C fake research claims?

The controversy surrounding the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) Vice-Chancellor Dr.H. Maheshappa is getting murkier with each passing day. After the hue and cry over the class of his B.E. degree, now the governors office is buzzing with the news that the Director (aeronautics) and Secretary, ARandDB, nailed Mr. H. Maheshappas claims over his research and development (RandD) achievements.

According to sources, following the Deccan Chronicle expose that Mr. H. Maheshappa had submitted incorrect information about his RandD achievements as the Principal Investigator (PI) and Co-Principal Investigator (Co-PI), the principal secretary to the governor had written a letter to the Secretary, ARandDB, Director of Aeronautics, seeking information about research proposals said to have been submitted by Mr. Maheshappa. He had attached the list of Collaborative Research Projects undertaken through Advanced Technology Enabling Centre (ATEC) established by Mr. Maheshappa and had requested the DRDO to confirm these claims along with the information about PI and Co-PI.

But to the surprise of the officials, the reply furnished by DRDO has no reference at all to Mr. H. Maheshappa in any of these projects. According to the letter written by Mr Harish Chandra, Director (aeronautics) and Secretary, ARandDB, a copy of which is available with Deccan Chronicle, there is no reference to the presentation of the project in the DRDO records. Other six project proposals were submitted and presented by various researchers, including scientists from Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.

Speaking to this newspaper, a Raj Bhavan official said even though the letter of the DRDO officer had reached Raj Bhavan by December 4, 2010, till now, no action has been initiated, not even a show-cause notice, for misleading the governors office. Till now, no one dared to submit wrong information to the Raj Bhavan as its nothing short of a criminal act. But I dont know why everyone is silent, he said.

Committee to probe VTU mess

Bengaluru, Feb. 5: In a major setback to the newly- appointed, controversial Vice Chancellor of the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) Dr H. Maheshappa, the state government has formed a four-member committee to inquire into allegations of rampant corruption in the examination section of the university, including the charge of wealthy students being awarded pass marks.

The committee will be headed by the Commissioner of the Department of Collegiate Education (DCE) Tushar Girinath. The committee has been directed to submit its report at the earliest, as the complaints are of a serious nature, stated an officer.

According to sources at the higher education department, the decision to order a high-level inquiry was taken based on the complaints made by some of the MLCs, including Narayana Swamy and Capt. Ganesh Karneek.

Speaking to this newspaper, a senior officer said the MLCs have submitted some documents revealing the nexus between the university officials and the marks card mafia. The MLCs had alleged that officials were using the challenge re-valuation to pass the students and earn money.

In their letter to the Higher Education minister Dr. V.S. Acharya, these MLCs had pointed out that till last year, the pass percentage in challenge re-valuation was just 2- 3 percent, a figure which has now shot up to an astonishing high of 20 per cent. This steep rise has led to a flurry of speculation.

Principal secretary of the Higher Education department, Mr. Madan Gopal, confirmed the developments. Yes, we have formed an inquiry committee to look into the allegations of an exam malpractice racket in the university. We have asked the VTU officials to keep the documents in safe custody. There is no question of saving anybody, he said pointedly.

When contacted, Mr. Tushar Girinath said the committee would visit the VTU on Monday to verify the facts. The first meeting of the committee was held a couple of days ago. We are visiting the VTU campus, Belgaum, on Monday. As the complaints are of a serious nature, we have included experts in the team, he said.
