Ban on 250 colleges may be allayed soon

Will it be Diwali gift for 250 banned colleges

Nagpur Today: The 250 banned colleges may soon get a relief from the ban imposed by RTMNU as a Diwali gift.

If sources are to be believed, the ban may be removed in a few days time. The recent series of meetings held between the key stake holders and the RTMNU authorities seems to be finally yielding results.

The Management Council Members and the Representatives of the banned colleges have been constantly pressurizing the RTMNU authorities to relent and withdraw the ban on war footing.

The Management Committee members of 250 banned colleges have been continuously holding meetings with the RTMNU authorities from October 28, 2013 till date in the University premises to build pressure on them and make a head way on the issue.

The representatives of the banned colleges  under the guidance of the Academic Council and Management Council  members Dr. Baban Taywade, Mahendra Nimbarte, Adv Abhijeet Wanjari, Girish Pandav and Dr. D.K. Agrawal had a few days ago threatened to boycott important meetings and the 100th convocation of the RTMNU’s university scheduled to be held this month.

They had also plans of passing a “No Confidence Motion” against the RTMNU administration and to approach the Governor on the issue. The management members wanted the implementation of the resolution passed by the Academic Council as soon as possible.

The members also wanted the removal of the names of affiliated colleges from the list of other banned colleges who have started the process of recruiting regular teachers.

In a voice vote held recently, all the members, cutting across various political groups pressed for lifting the ban. They demanded for withdrawing the names of colleges having less than 50% enrolment from the blacklist and allowing their students to appear in exams. Their demand included removal of 22 colleges, who had completed all the formalities and also those which had started the process of recruiting teachers.

Senate member Adv Abhijeet Wanjari while speaking with Nagpur Today said that they are hopeful of a favourable decision to come in a day or two. A Management Council meeting is also scheduled to take place in this connection soon.
