Indore: A BDS girl student seeking her transcript reached divisional commissioner Raghwendra Singh’s office on Thursday after she learnt that she could not be issued academic certificate as district administration had pressed university employees in poll duty.
The girl reportedly met the commissioner and requested him to direct the university to issue her transcript as she requires it urgently. Understanding her plight, the commissioner immediately called vice-chancellor Dr Narendra Dhakad and asked him to issue transcript to the girl student. But the V-C expressed his inability to do so.
“I told the commissioner that two employees look after medical course affairs in the university and both of them have been pressed into poll duty. Without them, academic certificates cannot be verified and issued,” Dhakad said. To this, the commissioner took mobile phone number of one of employees and relieved him from poll related works for some time so that transcript could be issued to the girl students.
Many students visit the university for academic certificates including marksheet, degree, transcript, migration and verification of documents daily but they are returned as nearly 50 per cent of the examination department employees have been deployed in poll duty. In all, 118 DAVV employees are on poll duty.
On Wednesday, the V-C had met the commissioner and requested him to relieve at least exam department officials so that exams could be held. The commissioner had agreed to relieve 9 out of 22 exam department employees. The employees are likely to be relieved in day or two.
An academic transcript is a certified record of student’s full enrolment history including all courses attempted, results received and awards conferred.
