Concern over lecturers avoiding exam work

By Our Staff Correspondent

MANGALORE, MARCH 15. The Vice-Chancellor of Mangalore University, B. Hanumaiah, on Tuesday expressed concern over the attitude of some lecturers trying to avoid examination related works.

Prof. Hanumaiah, who presided over the Academic Council meeting, said about 50 per cent of those teachers drawing the University Grants Commission (UGC) pay scale are trying to avoid examination assignments by giving one reason or the other.

Teachers are involved in the conduct of examination, valuation and tabulation works. Those who draw UGC pay scale do not get any extra remuneration for attending examination related works.

Some teachers convey their inability to attend examination related work at the last moment.

This has become a problem for the university while conducting examination.

The Registrar (Evaluation), K. Sooryanarayana Rao, said many affiliated colleges do not have qualified examiners. Many colleges do not have permanent lecturers. Part-time lecturers cannot take part in examination related works.

Some colleges start a new course but they do not recruit permanent teachers to teach that subject.

In such a situation conducting examination for the particular subject and valuing answer scripts become difficult.

Recruitment

Mr. Rao requested the principals of affiliated colleges and managements to take note of this and recruit permanent teachers.

Prof. Hanumaiah said the university has sent circulars to affiliated colleges that they should pay a minimum of Rs. 5,000 as salary per month to those who have completed the State Level Eligibility Test (SLET) and the National Eligibility Test (NET).

For others the colleges should pay a minimum of Rs. 4,000 as salary per month. The teachers should be given a minimum increment of Rs. 100 per year. If the colleges do not comply with this the university would review affiliation to such colleges.

Budget

The Finance Officer of the university, T. Mallikarjunappa, tabled a deficit budget for 2005-06. Receipts are estimated at Rs. 33,47,80,405 and expenditure at Rs. 35,26,43,312 leaving a deficit of Rs. 1,78,62,907.

The shortage would be met from the savings of the last fiscal, he said.

Mr. Mallikarjunappa said the revised budget estimates for 2004-05 has also shown a deficit of Rs. 9,30,180.

Receipts

Receipts are estimated at Rs. 27,81,21,200 against an expenditure of Rs. 27,90,51,380.

This shortage would be met from the savings of the previous financial year (2003-04), he said.

The meeting approved the budget for 2005-06 and revised estimates of 2004-05.
