A strange situation has arisen in Kolhan University. The university had ordered to start new professional courses like BBA, BCA, MCA, BSc IT in 8 colleges from this session, but the colleges have refused to start the course. The principals say that we have neither teachers nor rooms and other necessary facilities. So we cannot teach students. He says that if all the preparations are done, then this course can be started from the next session. After the refusal of the colleges, the university administration is also on the back foot.
The university also accepted that these courses cannot be started in these colleges this year. About four thousand students were expected to take admission in these courses. In fact, under the new education policy, the syndicate of KU had ordered to start new professional courses from this year in 8 colleges out of a total of 18 government colleges. These courses are already running in 10 colleges. It was estimated that about three thousand students would take admission in these colleges. In the new colleges where these professional courses are to be started, more than 100 teachers will be appointed by the university on contract basis, but it will get time.
Apart from this, the university will also start the process of mapping to develop infrastructure in the college. For this a committee will be formed, which will give the assessment report. On the basis of this, funds will be released to the colleges for the development of basic infrastructure. The whole process may take 4 to 6 months or more. This is the reason why colleges have refused to take admission this year.
Denied these colleges
“Only half of the KU colleges are running professional courses. Most of them have either BBA or BCA. Girls can get maximum employment through these courses only. Keeping this in mind, all 18 colleges of the university I am getting ready to start vocational courses.
Dr PK Pani, Spokesperson KU
“We can start several courses under commerce. Its proposal has been sent to the university. But as far as admission is concerned, it is not possible to start in this session now. So, we will keep in mind the next session. Keeping this in mind, we are planning to start vocational courses.
Dr. Mudita Chandra, Principal ABM College
Expert’s opinion – employment will be provided only through vocational courses, it should be mandatory in colleges
“Professional courses provide more employment opportunities. It should be made compulsory in the college. This is the reason why special focus was given on these courses in the new education policy. The fee for private colleges like BBA and BCA courses is 30 to 80 thousand rupees per semester. Whereas the fee of BBA in government colleges is 10 thousand rupees per semester and BCA is 16 thousand rupees. It will be profitable. The more delay is there, the more the girl students will suffer. There is a big demand in small industries for the students who are doing BBA, BCA, BSc IT.
