University to cancel affiliation of P.A. Aziz college for a year
Tiruvananthapuram: The Syndicate of the University of Kerala, on Thursday, decided to cancel for a year (2012-13) the affiliation given to the P.A. Aziz College of Engineering and Technology.
A press note issued here said the university had withheld B.Tech. results of the college after the institution had admitted 120 students in place of 60 for the electronics and communication branch of the B.Tech. course.
The Syndicate also decided to publish all B.Tech. results from the college save that of the electronics and communication branch. A decision on the publication of this result will be taken later.
The Heera College of Engineering and Technology will be fined Rs.3 lakh for admitting ineligible candidates for the B.Tech. programme. The college Principal will be kept away for a year from admission procedures, the Syndicate resolved.
It decided to issue a stern warning to the Principal of the MSM College, Kayamkulam, for admitting excess students to the M.Com. and M.Sc. courses.
The Centre for Comparative Studies will be renamed the Centre for Cultural Studies. A single-window, online system will be implemented for degree admissions for 2012-13.
The firm BAe HAL which had submitted the lowest quote for the digitisation of documents in the university will be invited for further discussions with the technical committee of the university.
Institutions which applied for setting up learner-support centre of the Institute of Distance Education and which received a score of more than 60 in the university's evaluation process will be considered eligible for further measures on this front.
Institutions which applied for affiliation to the university after the statutory date for the same will be given the application subject to sanction from the Chancellor.
Candidates who have received the INSPIRE scholarship from the Department of Science and Technology will be allowed to enrol for doctoral programmes in the university. Fifty persons will be appointed, from the employment exchange, as assistants in the examination wing of the university, the meeting resolved. This is in view of the shortage of such staff in that section.
The Syndicate authorised Vice-Chancellor A. Jayakrishnan to hold discussions with persons concerned for the publication of the withheld results of the B.Arch. examinations at Bishop Jerome College.
