Indore: Three BEd college students of DAVV denied exams


Indore: Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV) has denied exams to students of three BEd colleges as their institutes failed to obtain affiliation for session 2017-18. “Students of Imperial College, Vaidehi College and Subhdeep College could not secure affiliation from the DAVV. So, students of these colleges were not permitted to take exams,” said vice chancellor Dr Narendra Dhakad.

The university on April 11 had released a list of six colleges that could not secure affiliation for failing to meet pre-requisites conditions including appointment of teachers under Code-28 norms. Two colleges met the conditions and obtained affiliations whereas four were left.

A day ahead of the exams, students of Liberal College and Imperial College turned up at the university and claimed that their institutes have met the necessary conditions so they should also be allowed to take exams. The VC asked their colleges to furnish documental proofs. Liberal college submitted the documental proofs so it was granted affiliation and its students were allowed to take the exams whereas Imperial College failed to do so. “The students of Imperial College and two other colleges were not issued affiliation for session 2017-18,” said registrar Ajay Verma.

Clean chit of Liberal College in mass copying case

DAVV on Monday gave clean chit to Liberal College in an alleged mass copying case. “We opened a probe report in the case only to find that no case of malpractice had taken place. The inquiry committee has not found the charges untrue,” the VC said.

During evaluation of law course answer books, an examiner had returned answer books to the university about six months ago alleging that answers of many students were same, word to word. He had suspected mass copying after which an inquiry into the matter was constituted.

Students who were put under question had taken exam from a centre step up at Liberal College so it had also come under lens. The committee probed into the matter submitted its report in December last year but the university did not get time to open it till Monday. On Monday, the VC opened the report and claimed that the committee did not find any evidence which could substantiate charges of mass copying.
