Stiff opposition for Sambalpur University’s ‘private exam’ move

Following is a report from

SAMBALPUR: The privatisation and outsourcing spree has not spared Sambalpur University either. If the varsity authorities have their way, students will soon find their examination and evaluation done by a private agency. And this has stirred up a hornet’s nest.  The student community and the intelligentsia expressed strong resentment at the move to outsource examination.

The university is planning Integrated Examination Management System under which a private agency will be hired. The agency will look after all the exam-related activities __ registration of examinees, admit cards, setting question papers, valuation of answersheets and issuing provisional marksheets. The system is to be implemented at the university’s 220-affiliated colleges, besides various departments.  Once implemented, this would effectively end the work of six examination cells, six confidential cells, one private cell and one distance education cell that are involved in conducting examinations of around 65,000 students every year. 

Sources said three south-based IT firms __ Mind Largx Infotech Limited (Bangalore), Merit Trac Services Private Limited (Bangalore) and Om Shanti Soft Solution Private Limited (Hyderabad) had evinced interest in the project after the varsity floated a tender in July.  Although university authorities have not yet finalised the deal, the move has led to public outcry. Former Vice-Chancellor of Berhampur University Prof A P Padhi and All-India University Employees’ Federation president Bhawani Hota have asked the authorities to first evolve a consensus.  University syndicate member Karunakar Supakar said he would raise the issue at the syndicate. 

The decision has also come in for stiff opposition from Sambalpur University Employees’ Association, All-Koshal Students’ Union, Sambalpur Chhatra Vikash Parishad and Sambalpur unit of NSUI.  The NSUI, led by district president Debasis Dash, held a meeting on Saturday and resolved to launch a stir if the decision is not withdrawn. However, university Registrar Dr S S Rath said the proposal is at nascent stage and all aspects will be looked into before taking a final decision.

Indian Institute of Production Management (IIPM) Kansbahal, Sundergarh offers an MTech programme in Production Engineering

Following report is from The Pioneer:

The State-based Indian Institute of Production Management (IIPM) located in Kansbahal, Sundergarh, has scored a first in the State by starting an MTech programme in Production Engineering. Classes are expected to start from July 10, 2010. The course will be conducted by the Wellteach University of Chennai and 25 students will be taken in through a Joint Entrance Examination to be conducted by the university in June. The course fee for the 2-year course has been pegged at Rs 2 lakh.

Announcing this to the media in a meeting organised here on Sunday, Director Prof MR Nayak emphasised that even though the institute does not have any BTech course on offer it has ventured to conduct the MTech course because of its close to three decades of experience in training and consulting activity in the field of production engineering which has seen over 30,000 trainees pass through its portals including 1,400 persons from abroad. Because of its uniqueness of expertise and experience it has been included as an approved training institute under the Colombo Plan and the international trainees are sent here for training after selection by the Ministry of External affairs of the Government of India.

This institute has not yet acquired the reputation of its far better known namesake but it also has a successful MBA program approved by All India Council of Technical Education and affiliated to Biju Patnaik Institute of Technology. At Rs 40,000 per year it’s fees are one of the lowest for the MBA course in the State but the institute has established a good track record of campus placement in just 2 years that the course has started.

Started by ICICI in 1983 with active support from L&T, Usha Martin Industries and Government of Odisha it has received substantial contribution from many others that include Steel Authority of India Ltd, TATA Steel, TATA Motors, University of Manchester and British Council. With India poised to be a Global Manufacturing hub and Odisha being in the thick of activity where tens of thousands of crores are planned to be invested in manufacturing sector the Institute intends to add teeth to the manufacturing prowess of the country with well trained manpower in all levels of the production activity.

Transfer trouble stares Rajendra College Balangir in face;No admission to PG courses in Botany, Zoology and Chemistry this year

Following report is from

BALANGIR: If the State Government goes ahead with its plan of transferring government lecturers, who have spent six years in a college, Rajendra (autonomous) College in Balangir will be hit hard. 

In last decade the college got no replacement after a lecturer was transferred. At present, 17 out of 19 lecturers of the college have completed more than six years.  

As such the college is already reeling under acute staff shortage with only 30 percent lecturers of the sanctioned strength doing  duty at present. The citizens and guardians of students apprehend that implementation of six-year transfer plan will not only hit the teaching but also put a question mark on the very existence of the college.  

As per official sources, sanctioned teaching staff strength for Plus Three and PG classes is 64. As many as five departments of the college are running without a single staffer. As a result the college committee stopped admission to PG courses in Botany, Zoology and Chemistry this year. “Because of paucity of teaching staff, we stopped admission to these departments this year as per the decision of college committee,” said principal Satyabanta Bedbak. He said with only 19 staff members the teaching has already been hit and the situation will worsen if government’s six-year transfer plan is actuated.

Ever since the college was conferred autonomy in 2002, there has been gradual decline in number of teaching staff. “The premier institution, which has thrown up talents who have excelled in various fields, is hamstrung by staff shortage. This has been the trend for the last one decade but the local representatives never took up the issue with higher authorities,” rued Pramod Mishra, president of Koshal Kranti Dal. He said the college should be treated separately while implementing the proposed transfer plan. He warned of mass agitation if the State Government failed to act.
