Governor seeks inquiry into Karnataka State Open University irregularities
In a press release here, K Vasanthkumar, divisional organising secretary of Mysore Division of ABVP said Prof Shashidhar Prasad, during his tenure, filled up 162 posts in teaching and non-teaching categories by not following any prescribed rules and regulations.
This is a biggest scandal and has been a black spot in the history of University of Mysore. The deserving candidates belonging to the SC/ST, backward classes and minorities, had been denied jobs. An committee headed by retired judge of Karnataka High Court, H Rangavittalachar, constituted to probe the allegations, has given a report that irregularities has been committed in the appointment of 161 persons. Besides, the committee had stated that roster has not been violated by the varsity.
Subsequently, the government directed the varsity authorities to book a criminal case against Prof Shashidhar Prasad.
He said their demands are; filing criminal case against Prof Shashidhar Prasad, cancellation of all 162 appointments done by him, starting recruitment process afresh, action against members of Academic council and Syndicate who were equally responsible for recruitment.
The ABVP has planned post card campaign on this issue. It has requested all the students to send post cards to President Pratibha Patil seeking her intervention and directing the government to proceed with the criminal case against Prof Shashidhar Prasad.
Probe into lapses in medical college recruitment
Guilty will be punished, says Sharan Prakash Patil, Medical Education Minister, Karnataka.
Eight persons accused in Dalit atrocity case in jail
- VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS OF DALITS
exemptions on materials , machines they import for the educational institution. However , while admitting students they are purely commercial minded , the highest bidder gets the seats.
MATERIALS , MACHINES & THEIR YEARLY INCOME. ENFORCE MINIMUM WAGES ACT , GRATUITIES ACT , P.F & ESI ACT TO THESE INSTITUTIONS WHO ARE PAYING A PITTANCE TO THEIR STAFF.
Some institutions like industrial training institutes ( I.T.I) , polytechnics , engineering colleges & medical
colleges run by trusts floated by forward castes lack basic infrastructure , to teach students properly , they only appoint staff belonging to thier castes. Dalits , minorities , weaker section people are not at all selected. They don't publicly advertise for vacancies. They fill all posts with thier own caste people & finally even get government grant in aid. How ? These institutions are getting affiliations , yearly approvals form the government , how ? actually they should have been shut. These trusts want government backing for tax exemptions , lands at concessional rates ,monetary benefits , etc , however the same trusts are not willing to implement the social welfare objectives of the government , by providing seats to weaker sections , by providing appointments to dalits few posts in all category of positions ( not just group D - dalits are also brilliant & capable of performing all jobs, they have proved it ).
Hereby , we urge honourable prime minister of india , government of india & honourable chief minister of karnataka , government of karnataka to :
1. before giving lands at concessional rate , tax exemptions , to any educational trusts the government must ensure that the trust must adhere to the social welfare norms of the government from day one.
2. Before giving affiliations to educational institutions the govt must ensure , are the institutions are providing sufficient infrastructure to students ?
3. Before giving grant in aid to any institution , the government must ensure have the management provided jobs to dalits , minorities , etc as per norms from the day one . if not grant in aid should be
rejected. Here there is no meaning in giving reservation of jobs in future appointments in those institutions , as all the posts are presently filled with forward castes , there is no expansion projects.
So , dalits have to wait for another 30-40 years to get the vacancies in those institutions after the retirement of forward caste employees , which is not at all practical or realistic .
4. In karnataka state , numerous Industrial Training Institutes ( ITI) have mushroomed , some don't even have basic infrastructure. Still they are running the show , how ? these ITIs run by forward caste people have appointed only their caste people to all posts , not even a single dalit is there. Still they have got government grant in aid , how ? we urge honourable chief minister of karnataka , to look into this & in future to provide grant in aid in aid to only those I.T.Is which have proper infrastructure & dalits , weaker section employees on their pay-rolls.
5. To order all educational institutions to make public announcement of vacancies in their institutions even though not covered under grant in aid , as they have already taken sufficient monetary
benefits from the government.
6. To order all educational institutions , to admit students as per government rates of fees. Some institutions are fleecing higher fees from the students , but are giving receipts for lesser amount only.
7. If any educational institutions don't agree with the government norms , those institutions must be asked to be registered as commercial bodies , no tax exemptions , lands at concessional rates ,
allotment of CA sites should be given to them by the government.
By these measures alone poor & weaker section people will get justice . you are aware of merited but poor students committing suicides year after year , CET fiasco - due to their financial inability to join medical or engineering colleges. Numerous similar cases are there with regard to admission to ITIs .
polytechnics. The greed & casteism of these educational institutions is reigning high. In the positive hope that you will be kind enough to put an end to this menace.
KSOU ready to face any probe: Vice-Chancellor
University of Mysore’s new V-C facing a slew of allegations
Rangappa has been accused of plagiarising a Osmania University research paper, published in an Indian journal, in October 2009 and getting the same published in an international science journal within a year.
Rangappa’s role in favouring his son in order to get him admitted to Yuvaraja’s college was proved by a syndicate sub-committee constituted by the university syndicate. In 2006 Rangappa favoured his son Shobith to get a seat at Yuvaraja’s college by decreasing the eligibility to 45% when the actual eligibility was 55%. Surprisingly, Rangappa was one of the members in the committee constituted to take decision on decreasing the eligibility.
Dissent note on the inclusion of professor KS Rangappa’s name in the panel for the post of vice-chancellor of Mysore University made by the search committee in its meeting held on January 4, 2013, reads:
In a separate order, the Government has sought details on the appointments made during Prasad’s tenure and their present status. Following complaints of violation of norms during the university recruitment process, a one-man commission headed by retired high court judge H Rangavittalachar was appointed to inquire into the allegations. The report submitted on September 30 last has been accepted by the government and on Wednesday gave the go ahead for filing criminal charges.
The Rangavittalachar commission had found that Prasad violated the University Grants Commission rules and the State government’s reservation policy while awarding marks during selection of candidates to the posts of professors, readers and lecturers during 2006-07.
Minister for Higher Education Arvind Limbavali said that the move was taken only after careful consideration of the issue. “We had an inquiry ordered to look into the matter. Only after considering this the Government has filed the criminal charges against the ex-Vice Chancellor,” he said.
