The colleges have already been blacklisted for having not a single regular teacher and have been barred the First Year admissions. This information was shared by the Vice Chancellor Dr Vilas Sapkal with the media at a press conference after inspecting documents of the colleges on Thursday.
The Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) has decided to crack the whip against those blacklisted colleges that are misguiding the students and are illegally carrying out admissions in the First Year. Such colleges would now be permanently derecognized and their affiliation cancelled. The colleges have already been blacklisted for having not a single regular teacher and have been barred the First Year admissions. This information was shared by the Vice Chancellor Dr Vilas Sapkal with the media at a press conference after inspecting documents of the colleges on Thursday.
Dr Sapkal has termed misleading of students and then giving them admissions by blacklisted colleges totally illegal and deserve derecognition. “The RTMNU had uploaded the names those colleges on its website barring admissions to the First Year. Even then the colleges misguiding the students and giving admissions could be derecognized and their affiliations cancelled under Section 91 of the Maharashtra Universities Act, 1994,” the Vice Chancellor asserted.
It may be recalled, the RTMNU had banned admissions of the First Year for academic year 2013-14 in such colleges that were found having no regular teachers. However, many of such colleges, not only admitted students for the First Year, but also filled up examination forms from them. Recently, the students of Sitabuldi-based Mahalaxmi Jagdamba (M J College) had filed FIRs against the College for “cheating” the students. The issue of illegal admissions from then onwards started getting murkier.
Interestingly, the M J College had got recognition of RTMNU for starting the college in Koradi. However, the owner of the College, Uday Tekade started the Mahalaxmi Jagadamba College from Bhagini Mandal in Sitabuldi in Nagpur. This college, too, was in the list of blacklisted colleges. Despite this fact, Uday Tekade admitted students for courses such as Master of Fashion Design (MFD), Bachelor of Fashion Design (BFD), Bachelor of Textiles (BTS) by misleading the students of having RTMNU recognition and giving them the First Year admissions. Moreover, the college also recovered course fees and examination charges. However, the students were shocked when they learnt the illegal affairs of the college after reaching the examination centre as they had not received the admission cards for the examination.
