The state higher education department has cracked the whip for all state universities by issuing fresh guidelines for the same on Wednesday.
The department has asked the universities to declare the last date of admission, to upload and submit the details of students on their respective websites and to the higher education department, respectively.
The department has its objectives clearly and concisely laid out. It is working on a chalked out strategy of improving education standards across the state. The government has issued the new notification with the following objectives:
Admission process transparent,
Promote quality education,
Transparent exams and
Output backed by research work
The Department also expressed its keenness on the declaration of the last date for admissions by the University. All private universities are directed to submit the record of all admitted students to higher education department on or before September 15.
“This step is taken to stop the admissions on the back dates which have been a routine practice by many private universities,” said a senior government official.
“They have to upload the names of degree recipients on the web portal,” read instructions.
Additionally, the Jodhpur National University was caught red-handed while selling degrees to students. With the announcement and uploading of the last date for filing applications on the website, the government aims to check the practice of illegal distribution.
Precaution is better than Cure!
The University campus has been endowed with biometric attendance machines. This ensures that professors take classes without fail. Not only this, the University guidelines also attracted other formalities like Aadhar and PAN-linking. “This will prevent the institutes to show ghost teachers which some of them shows during inspections,” said an official.
An extra measure for scholars
Degree wise registers have been prepared to mark attendance for students and scholars. Ph.D. scholars will now be allowed to take classes from regular faculty.
