Katol’s Nabira College fined Rs 7 lakh for “playing with students’ future”

Nagpur University
Nagpur: The Nabira College of Katol was slapped with a fine of Rs 7 lakh for its “careless” attitude and ‘playing with the future of students.’ The Board of Studies of Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University cracked the whip on the truant college. The college has to remit the fine till November 30, 2017. If the college fails to remit the fine, the admissions of students in the college will be barred from the next year.

Activists of NSUI had staged demonstration in front of Examination Department of NSUI recently that led to revelation of glaring carelessness on the part of Nabira College. It was found that the college had not filled up examination forms of 36 students. Due to this glaring mistake the students were deprived of I-Cards. As the students did not receive the I-Cards, the babus of the college prepared the I-Cards manually and handed over to the students. But the result of no student was declared by the university authorities. A committee set up to go into the entire episode found no mistakes on the part of students. It was the college that bungled all the way. Taking the matter seriously, the Board of Studies of Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University slapped a fine of Rs 7 lakh on the college for its folly.

The Regional Secretary of NSUI Abhishek Singh hailed the action against Nabira College as totally appropriate. The organisation had demanded derecognition of the college.

The Pro-Vice Chancellor of Nagpur University Dr Pramod Yevale has said that the 36 students will not be allowed to suffer. Their result has been declared.
