Delhi University's Kirori Mal College principal removed from office

NEW DELHI: Acting principal of Delhi University's Kirori Mal College has been removed from office with immediate effect following allegations of financial mismanagement. 

The decision was taken at a meeting of the governing body (GB) on Tuesday night. 

"The GB has decided that the officiating principal SP Gupta be relieved from office pending an enquiry against him and Dinesh Khattar from the department of mathematics will take charge as the principal," a governing body member said.

The decision comes in wake of allegations of mismanagement of funds granted by the University Grants Commission (UGC) to conduct its national eligibility test (NET) in 2012-13. 

A committee constituted by UGC to inquire into the allegations found that the principal could not produce sufficient documents to account for Rs 89,22,161 of Rs 1.5 crore that the UGC had granted to the college for the conduct of five exams — three rounds of NET and two for the recruitment of education officers. 

"Gupta, will however, continue to work at the department of commerce. He has been given a chance to explain his position and three-months time has been given to him to settle the issue with UGC," the member added. 

Gupta was appointed as the officiating principal in August, 2012.

Markandey Katju calls for re-evaluation of higher education

Aligarh: Former Press Council of India Chairman Justice (retd)Markandey Katju on Monday bemoaned about the abysmally low quality of research work carried out by most Indian universities and about rampant "plagiarism", which, he said, is raising disturbing questions regarding the present status of higher education in the country.
Delivering the keynote address at the inaugural session of the North Zone Vice Chancellors' conclave here, Katju said a huge amount of money was being spent on higher education, but this investment was making no contribution in raising the standard of living of Indian masses.
"The time has arrived to re-evaluate the functioning of our institutions of higher education so that they can benefit all sections of Indian people," he said.
"Most of the money spent in India is going to institutions of higher education like IITs and as a result there is hardly any money available for primary and basic education, particularly in rural areas. The level of facilities in primary schools is reflected in the pathetic level of classrooms, and working conditions of teachers," he said.
Katju felt that the theme of the conclave - 'Research for the betterment of the human society' - was very pertinent as most of the present research in Indian universities was being conducted on subjects which have "no relevance whatsoever to the myriad social, economic, scientific and technological issues faced by the country".
AMU Vice Chancellor, Lt Gen (retd) Zameer Uddin Shah urged
Indian universities to take up the challenge of research work in important fields of "water conservation technology, waste water treatment and solar farming".
He said that the AMU had recently written to the Prime Minister offering its expertise in the vital field of "conservation and preservation of Indian rivers, especially the rivers Ganga and Yamuna".
Addressing the conclave, Lt Gen SS Mehta, former Director General, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), said that six major threats to India's security were "water scarcity, energy related problems, health, education and rising levels of unemployment".
Vice chancellors from more than 40 universities of north India are participating in the two-day conclave.

Proposed IIM in Himachal feared to be fall prey to politics


SHIMLA: Though Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced of Indian Institute of Management (IIM) to the hill state has brought some solace to people who otherwise were feeling neglected in the rail budget. But many feel that this IIM, like central university, too would turn into a bone of contention among BJP and Congress leaders.
Already having large number of private universities, three government universities, a central university besides an IIT at Mandi, now announcement of IIM is all set to project Himachal Pradesh as hub of quality education. Many feel arrival of IIM would boost the local economy.
While where IIM would come is not known as all would depend on the availability of required land, many fear that it would meet the same fate like Central University which has turned into a political football as both BJP and Congress are having difference of opinion on the issue of where the permanent campus of university should come up.
The issue of permanent campus of Central University is hanging fire for last four years since its establishment. Seeing dispute over university campus intensifying, previous BJP government in Himahal Pradesh had proposed its two campuses at Dharamshala and Dehra in Kangra district. For the campus, then BJP government had offered around 200 acres land at Dharamsala, around 500 acres land was offered at Dehra, sources said.
But now the issue of permanent campus has become bone of contention between BJP and Congress. While the BJP leaders are claiming that foundation stone of Central University would be laid in Dehra, Congress leaders are of the view that Central University should come up in Dharamshala. As tug of war has ensued among leaders of two parties on the issue, no one knows where exactly the university would come up.
Sources added that after Congress came to power in Himachal Pradesh in 2012, a fresh proposal was sent to union government suggesting 80 per cent of the campus at Dharamsala and remaining at Dehra by making arrangement for around 400 acres land for campus at Dharamsala and around 200 acre land at Dehra.

DU admissions: Subject secured, outsiders finally head for hometown

NEW DELHI: Admission done, Utkarsh Pathak can
finally head home to Shravasti, Uttar Pradesh. He
came to Delhi on June 24, sure he'll make it into a
chemistry honours seat in first-list cutoffs. He
wasn't wrong. After a week's wait and Rs 20,000
in hotel bills, he took admission in Hindu on
Tuesday.
"I've been staying in a hotel with my parents. I'm
not going to stick around for St Stephen's final list.
We're pretty late already," says Pathak. "Most
candidates who came today are from outside
Delhi," says Shubham Dubey, manning the
helpdesk at Hindu. "There's massive confusion
about cutoffs and many are coming in just to
check minimum scores."
"I've been in Delhi for a week, anxiously waiting
for the cutoffs to be announced. I live in Assam
and the wait has been painful," says Bisakha Pegu
who's taken admission in sociology at Kamala
Nehru College. "We've been staying at a friend's
house since June 24.The delay has really
bothered us. The only saving grace is that I got the
subject of my choice," says Rashika PC from Kota,
Rajasthan. She'll be studying English at KNC.
Nikita Natarajan was lucky enough to have a
relative in the capital she could stay with. "Many
friends who came to Delhi with me went back to
Kolkata," she says as the Hindu principal signs
her application form for history.
Geetika Lakhotia from Bhilai has been staying with
relatives in Noida and Ashutosh Shukla from
Gorakhpur was sharing digs with a college senior.
Both have bagged seats in Hindu, in BCom (H) and
Hindi, respectively, and neither plans to stick
around for the second list. "I will come back when
classes begin," says Shukla.
Meenakshi Chatterjee arrived on June 22 from
Tripura. "I have been reading about FYUP but
thought that by June 24, it would be resolved. Also
we booked the tickets in advance. It wasn't
possible to go home and return on such a short
notice. So we have been staying in a hotel in
Paharganj. Thankfully, my admission is done on
the first day."
