Governor H R Bhardwaj orders probe into Mahatma Gandhi University corruption chargesKOTTAYAM: Governor H R Bhardwaj, who is also the chancellor of the Mahatma Gandhi University (MGU), on Friday, ordered a vigilance inquiry into the corruption charges against syndicate members and officials of the MGU including V-C, Dr Rajan Gurukkal.
The Kottayam unit of the vigilance and anti-corruption department has asked the MGU registrar to submit 13 files in connection with the allegation of corruption. DySP P Krishna Kumar is heading the investigation.
The vigilance probe is based on a complaint filed on October 17, 2011 by George Varghese, former joint registrar and current syndicate member.
The letter of the investigating officer addressed to the university registrar says the vigilance inquiry is based on the allegations of misuse of funds and abuse of official position by the syndicate and the officials of the MGU. The allegations range from appointment of staff and faculty to conduct of international conference. Meanwhile, Dr Gurukkal said the probe was not against the V-C, but as the head of the university he was morally responsible.
The decisions which were said to be corrupt were all taken by the syndicate. He also said the move was politically motivated and it would upset the activities of the university at a time when it was trying to become one of the top universities in the country.
Governor orders vigilance inquiryKerala governor H.R. Bharadwaj has ordered a vigilance inquiry into the various allegations including fund embezzlements and recruitment irregularities against the former syndicate and officials of the Mahatma Gandhi University.
The order was following a complaint filed by syndicate member George Varghese, who is also the former joint registrar of the university. Dy SP P. Krishnakumar of the Kottayam Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau (VACB) has been entrusted with the investigation.
In the wake of the order of the governor, who is also the chancellor of the university, Krishnakumar has asked the university registrar to produce 13 files that have been linked with the allegations, before the VACB immediately.
Meanwhile, university vice chancellor Dr. Rajan Gurukkal welcomed the chancellors order saying that the facts can be brought out through the investigations.
This is only a politically motivated decision. And we can find this out by examining the charges that have been framed.
There is nothing in the issue that can directly involve the vice chancellor in the case. However, I am ready to take moral responsibility for the investigation, said Dr. Rajan Gurukkal.
He also ordered the section officer concerned to hand over the files requested by the investigating officer and to give explanations.
The files will be given on demand by the VACB. George Varghese had filed a complaint in October 2010, mentioning various discrepancies including with recruitment and fund utilisation.
KOTTAYAMKOTTAYAM: Save University Forum took out a march inside the Mahatma Gandhi University campus on Wednesday in support of vice-chancellor Rajan Gurukkal. Over 1,000 demonstrators from various private and government colleges in Ernakulam, Pathanamthitta, Kottayam and Idukki districts took part in the demonstration.
CPM district secretary K J Thomas inaugurated the march.
Forum convener K Sharaffudin said that university syndicate should stop its attempt to sabotage the academic changes carried out in the university under Gurukkal.
Caste allegation against MGU VCA controversy is brewing in the Mahatma Gandhi University with a student alleging that the vice chancellor had abused him by calling him his caste name and lodging a complaint in this regard with the Kottayam police.
The complainant Chambakkara Pulluzhath P. K. Geethakrishnan, an MPhil student at the School of Disability Studies said in his complaint to Kottayam DySP, P. D. Radhakrishna Pillai, said that when he approached the vice chancellor, Dr Rajan Gurukkal, on February 29 at the VCs chamber saying that his professors had cut down his marks in the second semester, the VC abused him calling him by his caste name.
The DySP has forwarded the complaint to the circle inspector concerned to make a detailed inquiry.
Meanwhile, Dr Gurukkal told Deccan Chronicle that the allegations are baseless and concocted.
This student had complained to various national commissions against his department and I never thought he would turn against me. He had performed badly in the internal assessment and did not have the required attendance, the VC said.
However, when he pointed out that his blood sugar level was 400, which prevented him from attending classes regularly, I was shocked and thought of helping him out.
Then I asked him to submit a medical certificate to prove the same and promised to help him. I never used any caste name nor do I know his caste, said Dr Gurukkal.
Mahatma Gandhi University all for off-campusesThe Mahatma Gandhi University is set to allow aided colleges to run off-campus centres without attaching unnecessary strings, with the varsitys newly formed syndicate sub-committee recommending boosting the division so that more students and colleges are benefited.
The self-financing sub-committee, consisting of nine of the 14 syndicate members of the varsity, will place its recommendations before the syndicate meeting scheduled for March 3.
The Left-leaning previous syndicate had asked aided colleges in 2010 to detach off-campus centres from the main campus. Some of them went to court while others segregated it as separate campuses thou-gh they had enough space in their own campuses. This space was lying vaca-nt since the detachment of pre-degree from colleges.
Currently, seven aided colleges run off-campus centres with much difficulty, namely St Pauls Colle-ge, Kalamassery; CMS Coll-ege, Kottayam; UC College, Aluva; Devamatha College, Kuruvilangad; Aquinas Co-llege, Edakochi; St Teresas College, Kochi; KE College, Mannanam and St Alosious College, Edathua.
The off-campus colleges that were forced to close down are SB College and Assumption College, Chan-ganassery; Mar Thoma College, Perumbavoor; St Alberts College, Kochi and St Xaviers College, Aluva.
An year ago there were 82 off-campus centres in India and abroad under the MGU, and this has now come down to 76. We have identified that the sector contributes Rs 16 crore in total earnings to the university, which is one of the mainstays of the revenue of the university and hence, have decided to rejuvenate it, said Dr P.K. Somasekharan Unni, convener of the self-financing sub-committee.
He said that due to the hostile attitude of the previous syndicate, students were facing severe hardship in attending the exam at distant places and in getting results in time. We will correct all these issues and make it a vibrant stream, he said.
Students approach Mahatma Gandhi University for its graceWith their final sixth semester exams just a month away, many students in colleges affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University are anxious as they have not yet received the grace marks due to them for excelling in youth festivals, sports, the National Cadet Corps and National Service Scheme.
The students who have not received the first and second semester mark lists containing the grace marks are afraid they will not be able to apply for PG courses without them.
When contacted, Mahatma Gandhi University Pro-vice-chancellor Dr Rajan Varghese said the mark lists for all first and second semester students had been dispatched but the university was lagging behind with the lists for the third and fourth semesters.
The delay was mainly with marks related to the National Service Scheme, according to him.
We, however, hope to complete the process on schedule by June . Hardly any grace marks have been held up for fifth and sixth semester students, he said, adding that he was unaware of any complaints regarding the first and second semesters.
Altogether two lakh students study under the semester system in colleges under the university. Around 33,000 students appear for exams in one semester alone and 60 per cent of them claim grace marks.
Its a time-consuming process, but we have despatched a majority of the marks, said Controller of Examinations Thomas J. Mambra when contacted.
MCA students cant honour job callsSeveral MCA students of colleges affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University (MGU) are in a fix as their final semester MCA results have not been announced even two months after the examination was held.
Many of the students who were recruited by IT companies in campus placements have been told to join by January 31, but cannot do so until the results are announced.
Most students expected the university to come out with the results by the end of December or early January as it had done in the past and are upset at having to wait so long.
The university itself seems uncertain about the announcement of results. We hope to release the result soon. We are already issuing confidential marksheets to students who need placement, Controller of Examination, MGU, Dr
Thomas J. Mampra told Deccan Chronicle on Wednesday.
But the confidential mark sheets are of little use to some of the students, who claim that companies like Accenture are insisting on the original final marksheets before they can join them.
Around a 1,000 students from over 22 colleges had appeared for the final semester examination last November.
Kerala shuttlers ready for actionKeralas P.C Thulasi is the top seeded player in womens category in the 76th National Open Championship Badminton to be held at Bangalore on Friday .
As the 76th National Open Badminton Championship kickstarts at Bangalores Raheja Badminton Stadium on Friday, 14 shuttlers from Kerala will be vying for honour in the high profile show.
We have sent a good team this time. In the team events, we will become at least runners up if we are not drawn with the mighty Petroleum Sports Promotion Board (PSPB) team, said Kerala Badminton (Shuttle) Association secretary Muralidharan.
This year, Kerala will be relying on 19-year-old P.C Thulasi from Palakkad in the womens category. Thulasi, who is the top seeded player in the womens category, is powered by her first senior singles title victory at the Tata Open International Tournament held recently in Mumbai.
She was the only Indian to claim a title in the event. She has also won gold in Commonwealth Youth Games 2008 and won silver in the National Games 2011.
In the mens doubles, experienced and reigning champions Rupesh Kumar (PSPB) and Sanave Thomas of Kerala will have the upper hand.
Both of them have represented India in several International tournaments and their experience will be a major asset.
Daya Elsa Jacob and Megha Ninan are the other two players, who are coming with title glory.
They both have recently won the All India Inter University Badminton Championship for MG University. Megha Ninan will be playing in the mixed doubles category with P.S. Sooraj in the qualifiers.
In the team events, the womens team are the current reigning champions in the south zone. Besides, Bennet Antony and P.S. Sooraj are also a good pair to be watched out, said Muralidharan.
EU doesnt trust World Bank, IMF for bailoutThe crisis-ridden European Union prefers to generate in-house contingency plans than run to WB or IMF because their loan conditions will be worse than the crisis, says Prof J. Frey of the New York Institute of Technology.
Dr Frey was addressing the centre for trade, development and governance at the School of International Relations and Politics, Mahatma Gandhi University, here on Thursday.
EUs smaller countries, besieged by overspending and reduced tax, faced huge budget deficits, further aggravating a severe balance payment crisis. This put EUs very survival at risk.
However, Prof Frey said, EU countries realized that international financial institutions, when approached for loans, would strangulate economies of recipient countries, as terms of loans would be much severe than the crisis itself.
Advocating free trade areas, Prof Frey said one of the payoffs would be the lowering of commodity prices that will eventually benefit consumers.
However, governmental discipline with respect to tax collection and spending should be balanced and sustainable, he said.
Dr A. M. Thomas, Dr K.M. Seethi and Dr Mathew Kurian among others spoke.EOMJM
B.Tech results delay worries students of MG UniversityThe unusual delay in publishing the first year B.Tech results of the Mahatma Gandhi University (MGU) has made students nervous, but the university says that its responsibility vis-a-vis engineering examinations is reaching unmanageable levels.
The university used to release the first year B.Tech. results in October but this time, they are not out even in the second week of November.
Students who are appearing for their third semester exams in the third week of this month say they are in a complete flap over the delay.
Authorities attributed the delay to the computerisation it is introducing in the B.Tech. examination system from this year. We are moving to a paperless format with the online registration system for the exam. From now, students will be able to access the results of various semesters using a unique identification number, said the controller of examinations, Thomas J. Mambra.
At present, MGU has the maximum number of self-financing (SF) engineering colleges among all universities in state. We have 39 engineering colleges while Kannur University has seven. We have to value three lakh answer books across semesters every year which is quite huge, said Mr Mambra.
He explained that due to lack of experienced teachers with M.Tech, the varsity is forced to deploy those with B.Tech degrees from SF colleges.
The deterioration in quality affects the evaluation process so students may not be properly valued and the marks they deserve not given, he added.
He said the number of students with supplementaries (those who had failed in previous semesters) is also increasing and this number is up to three times higher in SF colleges than in government and aided colleges.
This reflects on the quality of SF colleges and increases the burden on the examination wing he said.
