DELIBERATIONS: Vice-Chancellor V.B. Countinho chairing Gulbarga University's Academic Council meeting, in Gulbarga on Thursday.
GULBARGA: Gulbarga University will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Vijnaneshwara Souharda Sahakari on Saturday here for starting the LL.M programme on "Bharateeya Nyaya Paddati and Raja Dharma" in the Department of Studies in Law from this academic year.
Disclosing this at the university's Academic Council meeting, Vice-Chancellor V.B. Coutinho said, on behalf of the university, he will sign the MoU with the president of the sahakari and former Chief Justice of Rajasthan High Court M. Rama Jois at Martur in front of Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs H.K. Patil, chairman of National Human Rights Commission A.S. Anand and NHRC member Shivaraj Patil.
He said that the new LL.M programme will be in accordance with the regulations governing the LL.M programme as a new branch of study connected with the activity of the university's Centre for Studies in Vijnaneshwara's Mitakshara and Human Rights. Prof. Coutinho said that the University Grants Commission (UGC) had already given its sanction for establishing the Centre for Sudies in Vijaneshwara's Mitakshara and Human Rights in the university and sanctioned Rs. 20 lakhs for creating infrastructure and establishing Vijnaneshwara Law School on the university's main campus.
Dean of the Law Faculty J.S. Patil said that the university had sought Rs. 1 crore for starting the law school. It has been decided to urge the State Government to sanction Rs. 80 lakhs for constructing the buildings required and for providing infrastructure, he said.
Prof. Coutinho said that the sahakari will provide the infrastructure available at Vijnaneshwara Bhavan at Martur.
He said the university will enlist the services of reputed research scholars working in the field of Mitakshara, Bharateeya Nyaya Paddati and Raja Dharma at the institute to be established at Martur.
The sahakari has also agreed to provide scholarship to the deserving students and research scholars.
Prof. Countinho said it is unfortunate that not much research has been done on Hindu Law. For the first time, Gulbarga University has initiated steps to conduct research programmes on Hindu Law and Mitakshara, which is used as a basis for Hindu Law.
He said that the teachings of 12th century social reformer Basaveshwara, who also fought and preached the need for according equal rights to women, will be co-related with the research activities taken up by the centre.
