Pune : In the wake of recent audit report that there were 71 colleges, which were barred from carrying out admissions in their colleges, for not having approved and qualified teachers and principals, the University of Pune has decided to carry the investigation of such colleges this year too.
As varsity has issued directives to all the colleges and research institutes to furnish the details like the list of approved and non-approved teachers, their educational documents, experience, the prescribed courses and their syllabus and the other information related to college infrastructure.
Before the admission process begun in the city colleges, the varsity had published a list of 71 institutes and colleges and had warned the students not to take admissions in these colleges, however gradually, some of the colleges then complied to the norms and deployed approved teachers and principals. These colleges then were allowed to carry out the admission their colleges.
Since there are more than 800 colleges and institutes, not all the colleges were audited during the inspection by a committee set up the varsity.
In an order issued by the deputy registrar, Board of Colleges and University Development (BCUD), S S Atre, stated that in the order that after receiving the details, the varsity will think of renewing the recognition of the college with University of Pune.
While asking colleges to furnish the details, it has been asked to provide information like the number of approved and non-approved teachers, their overall experience, education qualification, the varsity's approval letter. The order also stated to furnish the details like the courses offered at the college and the syllabus.
A senior official from the varsity said that now earlier, the audit was only done following the complaints regarding the 71 colleges, however now information from the colleges have been sought so that during the audit of all the colleges by the local inquiry committee, their claims will be cross-checked.
"After this audit the number of colleges which do not have all the infrastructure and will be increased and the the number is likely to cross 100," he said.
