karira posted a topic in RTI in MediaStudents are allowed to give "back papers" in subjects/courses in which they fail by several Universities. However, details of these "back papers" and the number of attempts is not available in the Engineers Degree. On the other hand, details of "back papers" of Doctors are available in their Degrees. One RTI activist from Bikaner, Rajasthan - Mr Manoj Kamra is using RTI to ensure that details of "back paper" and number of attempts are incorporated in the Engineers degree. See the attached Video about his efforts, as carried on Doordarshan.
As reported by M K Ashoka at bangaloremirror.com on January 17,2010 Majority of the faculty members of IIPSM, VTU’s extension centre, teach MBA students despite not holding an MBA degree; VTU sought academic details in Aug 2009, but the institute has yet to submit the same An MBA institute whose faculty members do not have an MBA degree. This is the plight of International Institute of Productivity Science & Management (IIPSM), an extension centre of Visvesvaraya Technological University, Padmanabhanagar. As many as 120 students have enrolled for the MBA programme at IIPSM. On complaints that a majority of the faculty do not have an MBA degree, the VTU sent a committee to the IIPSM in August last, whose report confirmed its worst fears. Later, the varsity asked the institute to submit the academic credentials of all its faculty members. It is still waiting for the latter’s response. NOT FIT TO TEACH The report, a copy of which is in the possession of Bangalore Mirror, says, “Although a list of 23 faculty members was submitted (to the committee), only 7-8 are found to have been teaching. Further, the faculty profile reveals a vast majority of them do not have an MBA degree which makes them ineligible to teach.” The committee has found a “lack of seriousness and commitment on the part of the extension centre to carry out an academic programme”. It has listed out eight points clearly mentioning that the course is not found to be running satisfactorily. “The infrastructure is very poor and not befitting an extension centre of the university. The premises where the centre is being run is a residential building and most unfit for running an extention centre,” the committee report has said. ANSWERS SOUGHT On receiving the report, VTU registrar Prof K V A Balaji issued a notice to IIPSM director M R Ramsay seeking explanation on these shortcomings within seven days. The university also sought to know why the extension centre should be allowed to continue. Interestingly, the registrar had replied to an RTI query on Jan 4, 2010 that the VTU had asked the IIPSM to submit the academic credentials of all the faculty members. When asked about it, he said, “A committee recently visited the IIPSM. It is in the process of preparing the report. As soon as the report is ready, it will be submitted to the university and action taken accordingly.” MIGHT SHUT CENTRE Stating that the other extension centres of VTU are doing “extremely well”, he admitted that the problems are only with the IIPSM. “We are concerned about the reputation and credibility of VTU. We will close the institute if the committee comes out with a report that requirements have not been met,” said Prof Balaji. Asked how the VTU would deal with extension centres, Prof Balaji said, “In future, while according permission to extension centres, we will thoroughly check the credentials of persons who are going to start it.” After Kincha took over as vice-chancellor of VTU, not a single extension centre has been granted, he said. When contacted, Ramsay said, “It is a university matter and the media has no right to investigate.” Later, he said there are no flaws in the IIPSM.
