Indore : Principal Secretary (higher education) KK Singh reportedly pulled up officials of the Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya on Monday for delay in addressing complaints related to the university lodged with the CM Helpline.
DAVV Registrar RD Musalgaonkar, Exam Controller Ashesh Tiwari and Deputy Registrar (confidential) Ajay Verma had gone the Collectorate to participate in a video conferencing chaired by the PS.
The PS observed that about 25 complaints related to the DAVV matters are still unaddressed by the officers. Expressing discontent over the issue, the PS reportedly reprimanded them for delay in addressing the complaints.
He instructed them to accord top priority to the complaints received from the CM Helpline and address the same in due course of time.
He also expressed his anguish over low registrations under Gaon Ki Beti scheme in the Indore division. The PS informed the Indore division Additional Director (higher education) RS Verma that merely 4000 students were registered in the Indore division against 9000 registrations in the Jabalpur division under the said scheme.
The PS also directed Verma to ensure that more and more students get the benefit of scheme and prepare a time-bound programme for the same.
Over the issue of installation of bio-metric machines in government colleges for attendance, Verma informed the officers of Department of Higher Education that the supplier is not sending the machines to the colleges for installation despite many reminders.
The DHE officials assured him of taking up their issue with the supplier. The AD was also instructed to encourage principals of government colleges to invite companies for campus placements. The PS lauded Government Holkar Science College’s efforts in this direction.
