GTU to conduct surprise checks at technical college

AHMEDABAD: Gujarat Technological University (GTU) has issued notification to all technical colleges that surprise checks would be carried out by teams specifically designated for the task of carrying out local inquiries. The varsity has directed all colleges to co-operate with the squads.
The notification comes on the heels of the report submitted by the Local Inquiry Committee (LIC) which revealed that nearly 40 per cent positions of teachers in diploma, degree engineering, pharmacy, MBA, MCA, Master of Engineering, MPharm, architecture and hotel management courses are lying vacant. What's more, 50 per cent of these self-financed colleges are currently headless and are being managed by in-charge principals.
GTU recently formed teams headed by nine deans to carry out surprise inquiries at different colleges. The college managements, however, opposed these checks saying that the inspection should be carried out only through prior information.
GTU issued a notification on the heels of this opposition. "We are very serious about the issue of ascertaining the true infrastructure and human resource picture at the colleges so that the students are not short-changed. We have directed all college managements to co-operate with the investigating teams," said A K Aggarwal, GTU vice chancellor.
The GTU had recently asked colleges to furnish details about the staff, number of students and infrastructure at college campuses, including laboratory equipment. The university has also designed a web page and posted all the information on online.
GTU teams will now check whether the information furnished to the university is correct or whether the staff and facilities exist only on paper. The GTU is especially careful about the laboratory facility at colleges. Recently, numerous instances have come to light where colleges had furnished the practical marks to the GTU while it was disclosed later that they had not conducted the exam as they did not have labs in the college!
"Colleges have been told that practical marks will not be considered if it is found that the colleges do not have adequate labs and lab equipment," said Aggarwal.
