|Answer sheets go missing at JNTU-Kakinda
|Andhra Pradesh,Nov 7
Yet another irregularity — that of missing answer sheets, has come to light at the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Kakinada. Apparently such incidents have been taking place periodically at the university.
According to sources, engineering, pharmacy and management studies students are put to great hardship for no fault of theirs. The university conducted examinations and these students appeared for all the examinations. But some of the answer sheets went missing and their results are being withheld.
It is learnt that nearly 100 such answer sheets went missing in the university over the past three or four years. “The students are facing great hardships given the missing answer sheets. They are losing academic years due to the negligence of the college or university,” said the relative of a student.
According to him, his relative is studying ECE in an engineering college in West Godavari District. She appeared for all the examinations in the third year and cleared all papers with good marks, save one. The university authorities did not put marks for a particular subject.
“After repeated representations to the university and the college, it is noticed that her question paper went missing in the university,” he said. Now, the university authorities have told her they would be conducting a re-exam for such students soon, he said. The student completed fourth year B.Tech too. But she could not get her TC for further studies.
According to university authorities, it is common for answer sheets to go missing at JNTU-K and re-examination is conducted for such students. The Director of Evaluation, JNTU-K, Dr P. Subba Rao said answer sheets have gone missing earlier too. But, after he assumed charge as the DE, such incidents had not been happened. He said that nearly 10 such cases which happened previously are pending with the university.
“The university will conduct re-exam for those students, after getting nod from JNTU-K Vice-Chancellor, V.S.S. Kumar. He also said that a monitoring system has been introduced. Meanwhile, the controller of examination Mohan Rao searched and found some of the missing answer sheets. But, many are yet to be traced.

He said they want quality services to get sophisticated technology for the students and also the faculty. Meanwhile, the Finance Committee of the University approved Rs 3.20 crore for the WiFi facility project and it should be accepted by the University Executive Council meeting to be held on August 9.

|Caste bias on the rise in Andhra Pradesh colleges
Hyderabad,Nov 1 Caste discrimination in colleges across the state, specifically in professional colleges, is on the rise.
This is more so in the case of students availing of the fee reimbursement scheme.
With the delay in government releasing the funds for colleges, the managements are forcing students to pay the amount. Students from SC, ST and BC categories, who are not in a position to pay, are facing discrimination. Some managements are allegedly even making casteist remarks and insulting students who fail to pay fees.
The government had directed all the colleges to maintain separate complaint registers to enable students to lodge such complaints.
It had also warned the colleges of severe action if they resort to such practices. However, the government has failed to initiate any steps to check the errant managements. As a result, the associations have approached the University Grants Commission.
The government was forced to act recently after the UGC intervened in the issue.
UGC joint secretary Dr K.C. Pathak has issued a circular to all the universities to curb caste discrimination in university colleges and affiliated colleges.
In a circular, Dr Pathak stated that, “Several instances have come to the notice of the UGC on caste discrimination in higher education institutes. It has been emphasised that they should desist from any act of discrimination against students on grounds of their social origin. The university/institute/college should develop a page on their website for lodging such complaints of caste discrimination and also place a complaint register in the registrar/ principal office for the purpose.”
The government has circulated the UGC orders to all the universities and directed them to ensure its implementation.
Thanks to the fee reimbursement scheme, the enrolment of students in professional colleges and other higher education institutes has increased manifold. While five years ago there were only about five lakh students from the BC/SC/ST categories pursuing education in professional colleges, the number today stands at 25 lakh.
Majority of these students are pursuing professional courses like B.Tech, MBA, MCA, MBBS etc.
