Bharathiar University to Penalise Erring Colleges

With complaints pouring into Bharathiar University (BU) from both parents and teachers about colleges collecting huge capitation fees, the university has decided to penalise the erring colleges.

It has come to be known that many of its affiliated colleges, both aided and self-financing, have flouted the norms by admitting students without following the reservation system, besides demanding capitation fees.

Complaints from parents have indicated that the colleges have admitted without considering even the marks of students secured in the Plus 2. Seats are also reserved on payment of an advance.

Colleges continued with their admissions even before the announcement of Plus 2 marks, though the university warned them of strict action against erring institutions.

On the first day of announcement of Plus 2 results, some colleges claimed to have, closed the admission, said a complaint received by the BU.

Based on complaints, we have asked all the affiliated colleges to submit a detailed report on the process of admission carried out and submit the report at once,” said Vice-Chancellor of BU Prof G Thiruvasagam during a pres conference here on Monday.

The colleges are to submit reports on the mark-wise and community-wise admissions and other modes of admissions, if any, to the university, which will study it.

The notice thus sent to the colleges will be put on the notice boards.

“If the colleges fail to respond to the notice, the university will send a committee to collect details from the colleges,” the V-C said.

In the event colleges are not obliging, the university will strip off the additional seats given to them. “They will lose the provisions enjoyed from the University,” he said.
