Profile of University of Calicut

The University of Calicut, the second university to be set up in Kerala, came into being in 1968 with the objective of developing human resources in the northern districts of Kerala by extending the reach of higher education and by promoting research in all areas of development with particular emphasis on technology and art and culture of Kerala. The University made the beginning by taking into its fold the four postgraduate departments set up by the University of Kerala at Calicut and 54 constituent colleges spread across seven northern districts. With Nirmaya Karmana Sree as it motto, the University has surmounted challenges to emerge as the largest residential cum affiliating University in Kerala. Its 27 post graduate departments and 286 affiliated colleges have now become a veritable light house beckoning lakhs of young men and women to benefit from higher education.

Located here are the Department of Economics and the School of Drama & Fine Arts. Courses in Health Sciences and Costume and Fashion Design are conducted at Calicut Centre. The University Students’ Centre is also located in Calicut .

At the Vatakara Centre, the University has set up two post graduate departments of studies and research. These are: the Centre for Folk Lore Studies and the Kunjali Marakkar Centre for West Asian Studies. To reach out to students closer to their homes, the University has set up Teacher Education Centres and Information Centres in all the five districts under its jurisdiction.

New Initiatives
Besides restructuring the graduate and post-graduate courses, the University has introduced integrated M.Phil/Ph.D programme from 2004-05 academic year. To meet the demand for the trained in the emerging areas, the University has launched new programmes in computer application & information technology, health sciences, fashion design, social work, printing technology, computer hardware and automobile engineering. Yet another effort in this direction is the establishment of the University Institute of Engineering Technology close to the main campus. The Institute offers B.Tech courses in electronics and communication, printing technology, electrical and electronics and IT streams.

Frontier lectures by renowned scholars and scientists, modernization of laboratories, upgradation of internet facility in the University library and post-graduate departments and computerisation of University examination are the other recent initiatives.

The impressive scenario of colleges owes much to the enthusiasm of private educational organizations, which own over 182 colleges. The remaining are run by the State Government. These 282 colleges have an annual sanctioned intake-capacity of nearly 60,000.

Brief History
Established in 1968, Calicut University has become a veritable lighthouse beckoning and directing millions of young men and women towards meaningful education. Today, it has emerged the largest University in Kerala with 25 Departments of postgraduate studies and research, under its direct control and 191 affiliated colleges spread across the five northern districts of Kerala–Kozhikode, Malappuram, Palakkad, Thrissur and Wayanad – serving about 2.75 lakh students every year.

Genesis
The University of Calicut came into being as a result of the foresightedness of the visionary leards like C.H. Mohammed Koya, C. Achutha Menon, and K.P. Kesava Monon who are no more with us now. They realised that the Kerala University centres at Cochin and Calicut were inadequate for a balanced growth of the higher education in Kerala. Vice Chancellor Dr. M.M. Ghani explaining to Kerala Governor Sri. N.N. Wanchoo the features of the University Campus Master Plan.

They wanted new universities, in particular, a full fledged University which could open the doors of higher education to the youth of northern Kerala. At this juncture, matters took a turn for the better. The late C.H. Mohammed Koya, for whom setting up Calicut University was more than a cherished dream, became the Kerala Education Minister.

C.H Photographed at the Govt. Rest House, a little before the formal inauguration of the Univeristy on Aug. 12, 1968. Soon, with the encouragement of the then Kerala Chief Minister, E.M.S. Namboodiripad, he constituted a 22–member committee of experts to examine the question of establishing new universities in the State. The Committee headed by Prof. Samuel Mathai, the Vice-Chancellor of Kerala University, consisted of eminent educationists and public figures such as late K.P. Kesava Menon, late P.P. Hassan Koya, late P.K. Abdul Gafoor, P. Govinda Pillai and late K.C. Chacko. After several rounds of meetings at Calicut , Cochin and Trivandrum , the Committee in its report unanimously recommended the immediate establishment of a University in Calicut to organise post-graduate departments of studies and research and to affiliate all colleges in the northern districts. Formation of a federal university at Trikakkara, Cochin was another recommendation of the Committee. Armed with these recommendations, C.H. swung into action and appointed K.C. Chacko, Director of Technical Education as the Special Officer and M. Abdul Rahim, Municipal Commissioner, as Administrative Officer for the formation of the University at Calicut .

In the meantime, at the behest of the Kerala Government, the UGC’s special commission headed by Dr. P.S. Reddi, the Vice-Chancellor of Osamania University, visited the State to examine its proposal for new universities. Based on the Reddi Commission report, the UGC on July 3, 1968 gave concurrence for the creation of a University at Calicut.

C.H, a man of quick action, could not wait for the convening of the State Legislative Assembly to pass a legislation for the formation of Calicut University . On July 23, 1968 he got an Ordinance issued creating the University. Thus came into being the University of Calicut . Several other actions followed in quick succession: K.C. Chacko, Special Officer, was appointed the first Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the University; the University was formally inaugurated at a public function on August 12, 1968; the Calicut University Bill was passed by the State Legislative Assembly on August 29, 1968; and statutory bodies such as the Senate, Syndicate, Academic Council, Faculties and Boards of Studies were constituted. This was just the beginning. Much more has to be done – developing the University campus with all the infrastructure such as, buildings for teaching departments and administration, hostels for students, recruiting manpower and more importantly, designing and launching new academic programmes. To carry out these tasks, the need was for a Vice-Chancellor who could guide, develop and lay a firm foundation for the growth of the University. The search led to the most suitable person, Dr. M.M. Ghani, Director, Regional Institute of English, Bangalore . He assumed office as the first Vice-Chancellor on May 31, 1969.
While C.H. founded the University, the first Vice-Chancellor Dr. Ghani, an academic administrator par-excellence, devoted every moment of his six year long tenure in giving it a strong foundation, a prerequisite to achieve the goal of spreading higher education in northern Kerala. In his endeavour, he had the wholehearted support of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor and the 15-member nominated Syndicate.

Dr. Ghani Era
It was during the tenure of this team that a master plan for campus development was drawn to meet the most immediate and long term needs. The immediate requirements of buildings for the university offices, teaching departments and hostels were met speedily. The Vice-Chancellor’s office temporarily located at the Government Polytechnic, Kozhikode was shifted to the campus in October 1969. By June 1970, the four teaching departments of Botany, Chemistry, History and Zoology were shifted to the campus. In that year, quite a few of the teachers, students and administrative staff took up residence on the campus. Their presence on the campus added momentum to the development of infrastructure, much of which was completed in a record time of about three years. These included various types of quarters for staff, guest house, hostels, teachers’ hostel, health centre, library, campus roads, indoor stadium and water supply system. By 1974, work on the construction of permanent buildings for each of the science departments, a block for four language departments and the administration building was under progress. When Dr. Ghani laid down the office at the beginning of the Fifth Plan period in 1975, the University had made considerable progress. The number of departments had increased from 4 to 11, UGC sanction had been obtained for starting seven more departments during the fifth plan period, the University Centre at Tellicherry had been established and the Trichur Centre was being readied.

Besides offering post-graduate courses, the Departments had begun to take up research projects with financial assistance from external agencies. Doctoral programmes in a few disciplines got stabilized. There was significant progress in the constituent colleges too. Their number had risen from 54 in 1968 to 70 at the end of 1975. Quite a few of these colleges had begun new courses.
Matching the impressive growth, there were several concerted efforts to bring about qualitative changes in the teaching and learning process at the graduate and post-graduate levels. Two of the most salient attempts in this direction were: a series of orientation and short-term courses organised to upgrade the knowledge and skills of teachers and the Examination Reforms Programme, a unique experiment that has served as a model to several universities in the country.
In the subsequent years of the Fifth, Sixth Seventh and the Eight Plan periods, the University made commendable progress on all fronts under the leadership of its successive Vice-Chancellors – Dr. Noor Muhammad, Prof. K.A. Jaleel, Dr. T.N. Jayachandran, Prof. T.K. Raveendran and Dr. A.N.P. Ummerkutty, Prof. K.K.N. Kurup and Prof. Syed Iqbal Hasnain.
Expansion Phase

The Fifth Plan period in particular, remains an important phase in the development history of Calicut University . Despite severe stress and strain it made significant progress by expanding academic programmes, improving the quality of education and by creating infrastructure to provide adequate support for on-going and future programmes. A major development in this period was the establishment of nine new Departments, seven with UGC assistance and two with the University’s resources. These were: the Departments of Economics (at Thrissur), Mathematics, Psychology, Philosophy, Mass Communication and Russian in 1976; the Department of Sanskrit and the School of Drama (at Thrissur) in 1977; and the Departments of Library and Information Sciences, and Life Sciences in 1978. The second most important development was the launching of M.Phil courses in Hindi, Malayalam and History in 1976, Arabic in 1977 and Physics in 1980. The first M. Phil programme to be launched by the University was English, in 1975.
The third major activity during the Fifth Plan was the commencement of the UGC sponsored College Science Improvement Programme at the Department of Physics under the University Leadership Project. The programme s objectives included compilation of a data bank on teaching of Physics in colleges, training of colleges teachers and assisting colleges in setting up small workshops/laboratories with UGC assistance. The academic-support infrastructure created during this period consisted of a Botanical Garden with a green house, a Radiation Laboratory in the Department of Physics and a Central Workshop and Instrumentation Laboratory, later named University Science Instrumentation Centre.

By the end of 1980, the administrative office and the Science departments of Botany, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Zoology had been moved into permanent buildings. The language departments’ building had neared completion. Yet another major facility that neared completion was the construction of a filter plant on the campus. With its commissioning in 1982, the University fulfilled the long-felt need for uncontaminated water supply on the campus.
During the Sixth and Seventh Plan periods spanning the 80s, the University in consonance with its policy focused primarily on consolidation and strengthening of on-going teaching and research programmes of the University Departments and constituent colleges. In pursuance of this policy, curricula of most of the courses were revised and some courses restructured on an experimental basis. To complement these objectives, the teaching Departments, particularly the under staffed ones were provided with additional faculty and, the laboratories equipped with new equipment utilizing UGC’s equipment grant.

With these initiatives, the University by the end of the Seventh Plan, had come to achieve the objective of uplifting the Departments to a higher level on the development scale. While the Department of Botany attained the developed status, four other departments- chemistry, Hindi, History and Zoology reached the threshold of the developed category. The other departments, though remaining in the developing category, launched news courses – post-graduate and pre-doctoral by some and job-oriented diploma and certificate courses by some others.
The University opened two new departments during the Seventh Plan period. The first one was the Department of Anthropology at Tellicherry in 1986 and the Department of Statistics in 1988 by bifurcating the Department of Mathematics.

Besides these, the University was chosen by the UGC to implement two major schemes – the Academic Staff College which was set up in 1987, and the University Leadership programme in History at the Department of History in 1988. To mitigate the problems of students in acquiring reasonably priced and good quality text books, the University set up a Publication Division in 1989. In addition to the text books for degree students, the Division has published over 40 research publications as non-text books. It also publishes five research journals. In the Eighth Plan period the University was geared to further strengthen and bring about overall qualitative changes in the academic programmes so as to meet the challenges set before it by new social, economic, academic and technology imperatives. During this period, the University established two departments funded by external agencies. The first one was the Department of Biotechnology set up in 1995 with financial assistance of the Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India, to conduct teaching and research programmes in Biotechnology at the post graduate level. The second was the Audio Visual Research Centre with cent percent funding of the UGC. The Centre produces educational video programmes for broadcast on DD Network – DD1, Vyas, The Higher educational Channel, DD Bharathi and Gyandarshan.
In the latter part of the 90s, the University launched a variety of cost-based courses to meet the demand for trained personnel in the areas of computer application and engineering, food technology, fashion design. The University also set up 11 teacher Education Centres to conduct the Bachelor of Education programme (B.Ed) course. In 1997, the Kunhali Marakkar Centre for West Asian Studies was setup at Vatakara to conduct teaching and research programmes with focus on West Asian Studies.

In 1999, the Centre for Folklore studies was established at Vatakara. The Centre besides conducting a Master course in Folklore studies, conducts research and document the folklore tradition of Kerala.

Colleges Scenario
The University to a large extent has succeeded in realizing the objective of making college education accessible to millions of young men and women of northern Kerala. The 54 constituent colleges with which the University embarked on its journey were more than inadequate to carry it further toward its goal. More colleges had to be set up. In the first decade of its history (1968-’77), the growth in the number of colleges was slow with only 20 colleges being added.

The next five years (1978-’82) however, remains an important phase in which as many as 19 colleges were established, keeping in view the sudden surge in student population seeking admission for college level courses. With this, the strength of colleges rose to 93. Eight more colleges were opened in the decade 1983-’92, raising the strength of affiliated colleges to 101. This decade, though not important from the viewpoint of numerical growth, stands out for the expansion and diversification of courses in the colleges. While some introduced graduate courses, some others launched postgraduate programmes. In the latter part of the decade in particular, 14 junior colleges started graduate courses and thereby elevated themselves to the status of first grade colleges. As over 85 per cent of the student population receives education in colleges, the UGC felt the need for proper planning and integrated development of colleges in the University. Accordingly, the University in 1988 set up the College Development Council headed by a Director.
In the subsequent decade (1993-2002), there was an impressive numerical growth. As many as 37 new colleges came into being taking the tally from 101 at the end of 1992 to 138 at the end of 2002. Today, the University has 286 affiliated colleges. Of these,117 are arts/science/IHRDcolleges, 22 engineering colleges, 23 Arabic colleges, 59 training colleges, 20 nursing colleges, 9 pharmacy colleges besides 7 medical colleges, 6 Ayurveda colleges, 7 Dental colleges, 2 law colleges and 1 Homeo College. The distribution of these colleges in fairly even in the five districts which are under the jurisdiction of the University. The district wise break up is: Kozhikode – 80 colleges, Thrissur – 70 colleges, Malappuram –78 colleges, Palakkad – 48 colleges and Wayanad – 10 colleges.

The impressive scenario of colleges owes much to the enthusiasm of private educational organizations, which own over 150 colleges. The remaining are run by the State Government. These 191 colleges have an annual sanctioned intake-capacity of nearly 31,000. The student enrolment for regular courses in colleges has also registered a many-fold growth. In 1968, the University Departments and colleges together had about 44,000 students. The slow but steady growth in the first decade (1968-’77) registered a sudden surge in 1980 when the growth rate touched a high of 23.7 per cent taking the enrolment strength to 86,000 from about 65,000 in 1979. The enrolment crossed the one lakh mark in 1983 and touched a high of 1.24 lakh in 1991. In 1992 the total strength had declined slightly to a little over 1.12 lakh. An equally large number enroll as private students, especially for the pre-degree courses.
The Unviersity’s effort in giving a fillip to the development of sports and games by setting up a Department of Physical Education has paid rich dividends. In several track and field events, the University teams have come to establish their supremacy in regional and national meets. P.T.Usha, Shiny Wilson, Anju Bobby George are just a few athletes of the University who have made the nation proud through their stellar performance in international meets.

When exam department poses tough queries

KOZHIKODE: The timely conduct of examinations in Calicut University is in doldrums but even that has not forced the varsity to take steps to appoint a fulltime controller of examinations, a statutory post.

The headless examination department has the mandate to conduct exams for around three lakh students spread over 335 affiliated colleges.

The vacancy arose two months ago and the assistant professor of the zoology department CD Sebastian was given additional charge of the examination department. He also serves as the director-in-charge of the School of Health Sciences.

Meanwhile, the exam department is in tatters with frequent postponement of tests and answer scripts going missing.
Varsity staff and teachers organizations say that a fulltime and permanent controller of examination is a must.

The complex task of conducting examinations for lakhs of students involves coordination with a large number of stakeholders including college principals, staff and teachers on a continuous basis.

This calls for a permanent and fulltime appointment in the post, said K P Muraleedharan, dean of Department of Commerce and Management Studies.

S Sadanandan, general secretary of Calicut University Employees Union (CUEU), blames the lack of proper groundwork and planning for the conduct of examination as the reason for the recent fiasco in which several exams were postponed at short notice.

The varsity on Thursday had abruptly postponed the first semester BA, BSc, and BCom examination of private degree students scheduled for June 15 to July 3, leaving in a quandary around 50,000 students across five districts.
The students, who are now in the third semester of their course, are yet to write their first semester exams.
Pointing to the lack of interdepartmental coordination, the varsity in an official release had said that some deliberate moves were made to scuttle the examination and expressed its deep regret to the students.
Faced with the situation, the university examinations standing committee has decided that all the examinations will be conducted under the supervision of the committee from next month onwards.

Calicut University puts off exams at short notice

KOZHIKODE: Abrupt postponement of examinations, answer papers going missing, and indefinite delays in the conduct of exams seems to have become the order of the day at the Calicut University.

The varsity on Thursday abruptly postponed the first semester BA, BSc, and BCom examination of private degree students scheduled for Friday to July 3, leaving in a quandary around 50,000 students across five districts.

The students, who are now in the third semester of their course, are yet to write their first semester exams that were supposed to be held last November. Continuing with the trend, the varsity again on Friday postponed another first semester examination to be held on June 18 to July 4 and the fourth semester BA, BSc, BCom (regular) examinations to be held on June 18 to June 30. The official explanation offered for the move is at once startling and vague.

The university press release stated that the varsity suspected that some deliberate moves were made to scuttle the examination and expressed its deep regret to the students. The vice-chancellor also warned strict action against those responsible for the fiasco.

The first semester degree examinations under the School of Distance Education (SDE) had to be postponed in the last minute after it was found out that the examination department had not even readied the hall tickets for the exams even a day ahead of it.

The postponement of exams comes days after hundreds of examination answer scripts of the fourth semester BA, BSc and BCom examinations went missing. The university is now scrambling to recover the missing answer scripts so that the final results of the first batch of students under the choice-based credit semester system (CCSS) could be published this month itself.

Many students have not received even their second semester results even as they are all set to complete the six-semester course this month.

T P Ahmed, member of the syndicate examination standing committee, said that the CCSS system was introduced without any preparation and groundwork. Lack of inter-departmental coordination and awareness about the system among the staff are the main hurdles. The staff at the examination wing is not proficient in calculating the grades under the new system, he said.

Ahmed said all the examinations will now be supervised by the syndicate standing committee from next month.

Lapses alleged in constitution of selection committee at Calicut University

KOZHIKODE: The Kerala State Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Womens Rights Protection Council has urged the chancellor, governor H R Bharadwaj to direct the Calicut University to reconstitute the selection committee formed to make appointments to the 150 odd peon and watchman vacancies in the university.

Speaking at a press conference here, president of the council P Mundi said the committee constituted by the vice chancellor (VC) to oversee the selection process was flawed and violated the principles of social justice as four of the five members in the committee, including the VC, belonged to a single community.

Under the university rules, the selection committee for all non-teaching staff appointments in the varsity will have the VC, conveners of the syndicate staff committee and finance committee as members. In addition to the three members, the VC has the power to nominate two more members to the selection committee.

The council office bearers allege that despite the CU syndicate having a member from the SC community, the two members nominated by the VC belonged to one community.

We believe that the move to exclude the syndicate member belonging to the SC category from the selection committee is aimed at indulging in corruption and favouritism, said Mundi.

Survey finds proof of illegal occupation of Calicut University land

KOZHIKODE: The land survey conducted by the Calicut University syndicate subcommittee to identify encroachments and construction of illegal structures has found out further evidence of illegal occupation of varsity land and unauthorized construction by various employee societies and chairs.

The committee has found that the EMS Chair for Marxian Studies and Research has around 43 cents of land in their possession even when there was no record in the varsity on the allotment of land for the chair.

Subcommittee member K Sivaraman said that as per university rules all the chairs in the varsity are entitled to only 20 cents of land. The EMS Chair is occupying 43 cents of land and there is no official record in the varsity regarding land allotment to the chair. Further, the four buildings set up by the chair, including the seminar hall, have not been approved by the varsity, he said.

The subcommittee members said the contention by the authorities of the EMS Chair that the varsity had not framed any rules for land allotment when the chair was allotted the land does not hold ground. They members said the seminar hall was built in the land adjoining their main building in 2008 when there was clear rules stating that all the chairs are to be provided only 20 cents of land.The committee members said that it was found during the survey that the Calicut University Employees Cooperative Store has encroached 3.5 cents while the Women's Cooperative Society has encroached 3 cents of land. Both the societies are run by CPM- affiliated unions.

The Women's Welfare Society run by the Congress- affiliated Calicut University Staff Organization (CUSO) has also been found to be running a hotel in the land allotted to the society.

Syndicate member TP Ashraf Ali said the report of the sub-committee will be placed in the syndicate meeting to be held on May 18. The syndicate meeting will also decide on ways to recover land lost by way of encroachments and removal of unauthorized structures

V-C action against Calicut University teacher flayed

KOZHIKODE: The Association of Calicut University Teachers (ACT) has opposed the move by the varsity to take disciplinary action against an assistant professor of the university for delivering a speech in a meeting held on the campus in connection with the nationwide strike held on February 28.

The ACT office-bearers said that the university has launched disciplinary actions against K M Anil of the Malayalam department for making disparaging remarks against the vice-chancellor and the university. According to them the V-C has also issued orders for a single member syndicate enquiry commission to look into the issue.

ACT office-bearers said that the university registrar had served showcase notice against Anil on April 4 stating that the speech made by him was against the high court order prohibiting protests on the campus.

Anil in his reply to the notice had stated that he had not made any derogatory remarks and that his speech was on the need to uphold freedom on the campus and the need to protect the values of freedom which the country had gained thorough a long and arduous struggles against colonialism and authoritarianism.

They said that it is entirely inconceivable that a speech that dealt with the values of freedom, the significance of the national flag and the glorious traditions of the national freedom struggle could be construed as maligning the goodwill of the university and its V-C. The association also demanded the V-C to abandon all further proceedings in the matter.

Corp for judicial probe into land deals

The Kozhikode corporation in its council meeting on Tuesday passed a resolution seeking judicial probe into the Calicut University land scam. The resolution moved in the council by T Hassan of CPM was passed after discussions.

Health standing committee chairperson Janamma Kunjunni said the government should oust the vice-chancellor and the nominated syndicate involved in providing around 15 acres of land to the three trusts without cross checking all the details.

Councillor P Kishan Chand of Socialist Janata (Democratic) party said the civic body which had granted prime land of 75 cents to Vaikkom Muhammed Basheer Trust constituted by then education minister M A Baby do not have any right to voice against the varsity.

He said the then local self-government minister Paloli Muhammed Kutty revoked the move citing that it was not possible to donate civic body land to a trust. While councillor T Sujan of CPM said that the real estate mafia is ruling the Calicut University.

Calicut University teachers ask governor to remove vice-chancellor, nominated syndicate

KOZHIKODE: The Association of Calicut University Teachers (ACT), the largest body of teachers in the university, has urged the university chancellor, Governor H R Bhardwaj, to take immediate steps to remove the vice-chancellor and the nominated syndicate to save the university from its current utterly disastrous situation.

The association claims it has a membership of 120 teachers. The total number of teaching staff in the varsity is 161.
The ACT memorandum says the university, which received the highest score of 2.94 among states universities in the last round of assessment by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), was being dragged into a mire of irregularities and terrible disrepute in the last eight months.

The corrupt and nefarious actions of Vice Chancellor M Abdul Salam and the Syndicate are responsible for the current situation. The vice-chancellor has instituted an utterly autocratic and arbitrary regime on the campus, prohibiting all democratic rights of discussion, debate or protest, it said. The memorandum says the vice-chancellor has undermined the structure of shared governance that is vital for the proper functioning of any varsity. He has also destroyed the culture of academic freedom and democratic debate essential for the sustenance of any meaningful academic institution, it further says.

There is a dismal atmosphere of discontent and bitterness among all faculties and other employees, and the university is in a state of utter disarray, the memorandum says. Listing the corrupt practices, the memorandum says that in an unprecedented move, the syndicate at its March 27 meeting sanctioned affiliation to 36 self-financing colleges of which nearly 28 are owned by educational agencies that belong to a particular community. Many of these institutions have no educational credentials and in some instances affiliation has been granted without proper application and inspection as stipulated.

The teachers have alleged that there was rampant corruption and nepotism in faculty recruitment, and illegal relaxation of UGC norms and regulations.

The memorandum also states that the universitys submissions for the UGC 12th plan had been formulated without consulting the academic bodies.

Rachpal miffed at CU for dropping tourism course

The Calcutta University has withdrawn a course on tourism — a decision that has not gone down well with tourism minister Rachpal Singh. The course was not only important for tourism but students also got placements in the travel and aviation industries. At a time when private institutions are taking advantage of the potential of the industry, the education department too should understand the prospects of the course, Singh said.

He added that he will talk to the education minister to resume the course.

College authorities, too, expressed their dissatisfaction. It was a good course and the girls of our college who had opted for the course had got very good placements. We have the infrastructure, faculty, but have no idea why it was withdrawn, said Maitree Bhattacharya, principal, Murlidhar College.

An official of Victoria Institution College said: The course was in demand. Many students want to enrol themselves. We have no idea why it was discontinued.

Ananda Sanyal, a former professor of Murlidhar College, said the course has been taken off at a time when the state was trying to promote tourism in a big way with the CM showcasing Digha and Mandarmani and the tourism ministry doing its bit to attract tourists.

Officials of University of Calcutta said the course was discontinued due to technical reasons.

VS to lead LDF delegation to meet governer over Calicut university land scam

KOZHIKODE: Opposition leader V S Achuthanandan has said that chief minister Oommen Chandy cannot escape the blame over Calicut university land scam.

It was Oommen Chandy government which decided to dismiss the democratically elected syndicates in all the universities and replace them with nominated syndicates which in turn paved the way for corrupt decisions like the land allotments taken by the CU syndicate, Achuthanandan said.

Inaugurating the protest march to the university organized by the Calicut University Protection Council, Achuthanandan said that he would lead an LDF delegation to meet Governor H R Bhardwaj, who is also the chancellor of the university, on Thursday to apprise him of the dubious land deals by the varsity.

The move by the Calicut University to hand over prime varsity land to IUML-related trusts had created controversy.

The opposition leader also criticized the IUML over the land allotment issue. He said that the private trusts headed by people directly related to IUML leadership were trying to snatch away varsity land which was foiled only by the timely intervention of the media and the opposition.

The IUML is trying to implement its agenda in the university, using the vice-chancellor. Since it does not have any idea about the value and importance of education, it has set its sight on valuable land, he said. The real intention was to snatch away 50 acres of varsity land by trusts and associations headed by IUML supremo Panakkad Syed Hyderali Shihab Thangal and the relatives of industries minister P K Kunhalikutty, he added.

Achuthanandan said that the university had tried to implement its decision to allot land in an autocratic way without waiting for the approval of chancellor or the state government.

V S Achuthanandan took a tour of the university campus and visited the land which the university had considered for allotment to the private agencies.

CPM district committee member C H Ashique presided over the meeting. CPM Malappuram district secretary P P Vasudevan also spoke on the occasion.

Varsity land scam: badminton trust denies charges

Varsity land scam: badminton trust denies charges

KOZHIKODE: Refuting the charge that Badminton Development Trust was one of those trusts which had reportedly been allotted a huge area of land by Calicut University, its secretary said yesterday that BDT was floated in 2010 and has in its fold members of repute.

The trust applied for land in the campus after syndicate members told us that land would be allotted for construction of a sports complex. We have also drawn the design for it. This is a false campaign against the trust. We want to inform the public of the real facts, BDT secretary A Valsalan told reporters. He also said not an inch of land was allotted to BDT and it did not want land free of cost.

A controversy arose after the syndicate allegedly offered land inside the campus to trusts and associations, headed by IUML, a major constituent of ruling United Democratic Front.

Recently, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy had refuted reports that vast tracts of land belonging to the university had been allotted to associations and trusts and said nothing would be done which goes against the interests of the state.

Chandy refutes reports on university land

Kozhikode: Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Monday refuted reports that vast tracts of land belonging to Calicut University had been allotted to associations and trusts headed by IUML, a major constituent of the ruling United Democratic Front.

The land has not been allotted to anyone. Whether it is the university land or any other land belonging to the government, nothing will be allotted to anyone which goes against the interest of the state, he told reporters here.

Chandy refutes reports on university land
Chandy said the Cabinet, which has to take a decision on the land, has not done so and added that such a request for land has not come before the government.

As the controversy hotted up, university Vice Chancellor Dr Abdul Salam offered to quit if the charges were proved.

Chandy refutes reports on university land
The opposition Left Democratic Front had also launched an agitation demanding action against the Vice Chancellor.

On April 24, a special court at Thrissur, acting on a petition by a human rights activist, had directed the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau to probe the alleged grant of about 50 acres by the University to the trusts and associations.

HC seeks last 3 years results of entrance

The Kerala High Court on Thursday directed the State to produce the results of the engineering entrance examinations conducted in the last three years by various universities in the state.

The court asked the state to submit the college-wise and course-wise results from 2008 to 2011, on or before March 28.The data should be collected from the respective controllers of examinations of the universities.

A division bench comprising Justice C.N. Ramachandran Nair and Justice Babu Mathew P.Joseph issued the directive on a petition filed by Mr T.N. Sathyanesan, former principal, Calicut University Institute of Engineering and Technology.

The petitioner argued that commercialisation of the engineering education had affected the quality of the course.

The students were admitted in self-financing and other engineering colleges without testing their calibre and areas of interest.

The statutory bodies are not paying any attention to improve the quality of education. So merit suffers in the bargain.

He also contended that the All India Council for Technical Education was not performing its duty satisfactorily.

Azhikode an excellent teacher: MGS

Prof. Sukumar Azhikode was an excellent teacher and his joining the Malayalam department at the Calicut University bestowed a new prestige to the department and the campus.

With masterly dexterity he transformed the otherwise monotonous Malayalam teaching into an endearing experience to students. As a critic, Azhikode brought down literary criticism from the ivory tower to the common people. But his true vocation was oratory. He was devastating, especially if he had to settle scores with somebody. As a person, his major drawback was his craving for authority and power. That was evident in the days of the Emergency when he literally lorded over the Malayalam department and the University Campus. Though he left Kozhikode for Thrissur, our relationship continued. I visited him twice at the hospital.

Malayalam writer Sukumar Azhikode dead

Malayalam writer Sukumar Azhikode died at a private hospital here Tuesday morning, family sources said. He was 85.

After being detected with bone cancer, Azhikode was admitted to hospital Dec 7 last year and his condition deteriorated in the past few days. The end came at 6.33 a.m.

Family sources said his body would be taken to his home here and then moved to the Sahitya Academy hall where it will be kept till 4 p.m.

His body will then be taken to his home town in Azhikode in Kannur district and the funeral will take place Wednesday afternoon at the Payamabalam beach.

Azhikode was a bachelor and he retired as pro-vice chancellor of Calicut University in 1986.

A multi-faceted personality, Azhikode won 12 awards, including the Sahitya Akademi Award.

Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy visited ailing Azhikode two days back. Soon after he fell ill, Chandy had announced that the state government would foot the writers medical bill.

Azhikodes most famous work is Tatvamasi (1984, Malayalam), an authoritative book on Indian philosophy, Vedas and Upanishads.

This work won him 12 awards including the Sahitya Akademi Award, Kerala Sahitya Akademi Award, Vayalar Award and Rajaji Award.

In January 2007, the writer refused to accept the Padma Shri, stating that such honours are against the constitution.

The constitution says everyone should be treated as equal. Giving such honours at different levels, the state discriminates between people. I see the Padma Shri conferred on me as an opportunity to expose this discrimination, he had said.

Mohanlal should be stripped of honorary Lt. Colonel rank: Azhikode

Veteran Malayalam writer Sukumar Azhikode feels that Mohanlal should be stripped of the honorary Lt.Colonel rank following the ongoing Income Tax (IT) raid at the Malayalam superstar s residences and offices.

Azhikode has asked Defence Minister A.K. Antony to recommend to President Pratibha Patil to strip Mohanlal of the honorary commission in the Territorial Army.

It is really a shame that superstars are involved in evading tax and they are doing it by exploiting their innocent fans, Azhikode told reporters here on Friday a few hours after the IT raids began at Mohanlal s residences and offices in various cities.

The I-T department sprang a surprise and arrived at the homes and offices of superstars Mohanlal and Mammootty early Friday morning and the searches for hidden wealth and undeclared income were still going on by Friday afternoon.

Mohanlal was given an honorary commission in the Territorial Army for his various roles in Malayalam films which portrayed him as a defence officer.

Mohanlal and Azhikode have been engaged in a war of words since last year when the superstar called the writer a mentally deranged person.

Azhikode filed a defamation case against Mohanlal for making the comment and a legal notice was served to Mohanlal asking him to either apologise or face legal action.

Last month Mohanlal had secured bail in the case.

The tiff started after Azhikode supported thespian Thilakan, who was served a show cause notice by Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) and was subsequently booted out of the actors body on grounds of indiscipline.

Last year, Azhikode lashed out at Mohanlal and said that he has become old and should limit himself to roles matching his age and figure. He also added that Mohanlal should stop selling the recognition and popularity that he enjoyed and that he should stop making money endorsing jewellery brands.

Mohanlal hit back a few days later, saying that Azhikode must be having some hallucinations and that he considered his statements as some aged uncle s joke . He also said that whether he should stop acting or not is none of Azhikode s concern.

Azhikode retired as Pro-Vice Chancellor of Calicut University in 1986 and has since then kept himself busy as an orator.

It s politics first in Calicut University

When the LDF came to power in 2006 it was frantically looking a vice chancellor for the Calicut University who would fit into their scheme of things. The condition was that the person should be a Muslim woman.

After considerable deliberations, the CPM zeroed in on Dr Maria Dossal, the then professor at Mumbai University. She agreed to accept the offer initially, but later withdrew after she came to know about the political climate in the university.

Such is the reputation Calicut University has among the academic circles in the country. Over-politicisation has ruined the academic pursuits of the institution that caters to the higher education needs of four districts in the state.

The situation is polarised campus that no one can have an independent existence without being a part of a lobby. The CPM has its employees union (Calicut University Employees Union) and Calicut University Staff Association (CUSO) for the Congress. Solidarity is the pro-IUML staff organisation on the campus.

Association of Calicut University Teachers is the teachers out of the LDF while the Calicut University Teachers Association represents the interests of the pro-UDF teaching staff.

The CPM had its own restaurant, which was closed down recently. To counter this, Congress has its own hotel Mala, named after the pet constituency of the legendary Congress leader late K. Karunakaran.

The political division is taken to absurd level by the parties by setting up separate kindergartens for their kids. The Artasia is the Congress kindergarten while the CPM has Rachana school.

The staff associations are so powerful that they can even hold to ransom the interests of the students.

The vice chancellors, who are basically political appointees, often become mute spectators to episodes that unfold in front of their eyes. Most often it is the association leaders who run the show, making a the VC post a kind of rubber stamp.

Too much politicisation, no academics

Now, my academic career is in peril. I cannot apply for a project. I cannot take a PhD. student. My probation has not been declared, my UGC pay revision has not been implemented. We should not be given an NOC or experience certificate. It is a blatant violation of my fundamental rights and the university shall be liable for the damage caused to my reputation and the anguish to my family.

The above statement was made by a professor of Calicut University, who resigned his job as a staff researcher in AIST Japan and joined the Department of Chemistry in 2005.

The experience of Dr Raveendran speaks volumes about the extent of politicisation in academic matters in the university.

More than 10 teachers from different departments of Calicut University are facing the same situation as the one described above. The majority, who are internationally renowned researchers and scientists, are getting ready to leave the university, as they are still being tormented by the university authorities for various politically motivated reasons.

Dr Raveendran got his PhD. from IIT Madras. He has also worked in Goettingen, Germany and the University of North Carolina, USA.

He joined Calicut University in 2005, but in 2007, a specially-appointed committee of the nominated syndicate appointed by the LDF government cancelled the appointments of more than 30 teachers including Raveendran, made by the previous UDF-dominated syndicate, pointing out irregularities in the appointment. Teachers alleging that the nominated syndicate had constituted a subcommittee with a clear objective of annulling the appointment by the previous syndicate.

Dr Lazer, Reader who was a post-doctoral fellow in the university of Texas, USA, and joined the University on the same date, is also facing discrimination from the university authorities. Even though Lazer is well-known among international academicians, the university says his academic achievement was not good!

The legal battle between the teachers and the University is still going on and the teachers are being denied their salary and other perks.

IUML withdraws its VC nominee

The Indian Union Muslim League has wriggled out of the controversy related to the posting of Calicut University vice chancellor by hastily withdrawing its nominee, Mr V.P. Abdul Hameed.

But the party will stick to its demand for one more minister in the Cabinet. The IUML got unexpected support in the issue from the Kerala Congress leader and finance minister, Mr K.M. Mani, who told reporters in Delhi that his party had no disagreement in giving the fifth minister post to the League.

A meeting of the party secretariat held here on Sunday also decided to ask the government to find another suitable candidate for the post of the vice chancellor.

The decision (to withdraw Hameed s candidature) was taken as the issue has become a controversy, said the IUML state general secretary, Mr E.T. Mohammed Basheer.

There are some legal issues. But we do not want to pursue it. Mr Basheer dismissed reports that the chief minister had ordered to freeze the list.

The IUML leader also threw enough hints on the party s stand that the issue of fifth minister was non-negotiable.

His dream is only a stones throw away

His dream is only a stones throw away

Often, people do not realise what they are good at, until destiny brings them face to face with it.

The journey of self-discovery for Rahul Ratheesh, a prodigious talent in shot put and discus throw from Kozhikode, illustrates this point.

At 14, he was forced to compete in shot put in his school meet and perhaps, the frustration of doing something against his will was what egged him on to excel in it. Thus began Rahuls promising career.

Today, he is one of the best athletes in both youth and senior athletic throwing events in the State. Just three years into the sport and Rahul already speaks like a mature sportsperson, one who believes in taking one step at a time rather than aiming for the sky directly.

I just completed my class XII and Im looking forward to joining the Calicut University team. My aim is to compete at the university level competitions and set meet records. I guess Im not being too ambitious, says Rahul.

The teenager gets training from his father Ratheesh, a former footballer and the propelling force behind Rahuls athletic career.

I have been training him for the last three years. Though my knowledge in athletics is limited, we have been producing good results. He finished sixth in his first state meet and in less than a year, he became a champion at that level, says Ratheesh.

Rahul, who has cleared 13.04 m in shot put (7.26 kg), is aiming to eclipse the Calicut University record of 13.44 m. I think that is achievable. Also, Im looking to break the 40 m barrier in discus throw, says a confident Rahul.

However, the teenager is clearly in need of specialised training. Roy John, athletic coach at the government physical education college in Kozhikode, on whom Rahul depends for technical guidance, believes that the boy is blessed with talent.

He has the right physique and also the mental stamina to cross milestones. His father has done well to spot the talent in him. But I believe he has to get advanced training from an expert from now on, says Roy.

Ask Rahul what his plans are after he scales the immediate goals and he replies, I dont know. Perhaps I will aim for the inter-university record but thats a long way into the future, so let me first focus on my immediate goal.

Nations largest blood donors network soon

The Calicut University is all set to launch the largest blood donors network in the country, with data of more than 1.5 lakh of its students, next month.

The directory will contain detailed information of all students studying at the University and 160 of its affiliated colleges. The programme is being carried out with the support of National Service Scheme (NSS) units.

A B Moideenkutty, the NSS coordinator in the University, said that the data, including blood group of 36000 students, contact numbers and addresses will be added to the blood donors directory which will be available on the exclusive website of University. The detailed information of remaining students will be uploaded soon after the launching process.

As part of collecting the blood group information of the students, the NSS has already conducted blood group detection camps in all the affiliated colleges including professional colleges under the University last month.

Moideenkutty said that the information uploaded in the website would be updated each year, by adding the details of newly admitted students.

The details of blood donors in the exclusive website can be accessed by anyone, he said, adding that the site has already started informal functioning.

It was a Herculean task to gather information from all the colleges, and the complete support of teachers and students helped us to make the dream a reality within a short period of five months, he said.

The Pareeksha Bhavan of the University is carrying out the process of uploading the information regarding the students.

The process will be quickened once the hectic examination schedule of the University is over.

Survey finds misuse of Calicut University land by CPM and Cong unions

KOZHIKODE: The Calicut University Syndicate subcommittee, which is probing all previous land allotments made by the varsity to employee societies and chairs, has found gross irregularities including misuse of university land and illegal construction of buildings on land allotted to both CPM and the Congress affiliated employee societies.

The violations were found in the land survey conducted on Monday to identify encroachments and misuse of university land by the societies. The committee will place its report before the syndicate meeting to be held on May 18.

The meeting of the university syndicate held on April 24 had decided to form a subcommittee to probe into all the previous land allotments and take steps to recover land lost due to encroachments, if any.

The decision came in the backdrop of the recent controversial land allotments by the varsity to trusts and associations linked to IUML top brass.

The survey was conducted by the three-member syndicate subcommittee along with officials from the university engineering department.

Syndicate subcommittee members said it has been found out that the 50 cents of land allotted to the Calicut University Housing Cooperative Society, run by the CPM affiliated Calicut University Employees Union, for constructing a mens hostel was instead used to build an office for the society. The building set up in the land was rented out to commercial establishment like RUBCO.

The two buildings constructed on the site do not have the approval of the university engineering department, Syndicate member K Sivaraman said.

According to sources, the building set up in the land allotted for the Calicut University Employees cooperative store has been subleased to the Indian Coffee House in violation of university laws. Likewise the land given to the CU Womens Welfare society, run by Congress-affiliated Calicut University Staff Organization (CUSO) has been used to run a hotel.

The subcommittee members said that the survey would enable the varsity identify land encroachments and recover land lost by way of encroachments. They said that unauthorized structures in varsity land will also be removed. The committee on Tuesday will survey the land allotted to five chairs set up by the varsity.
