Mysuru, April 18:- Former Vice-Chancellors’ Association of Karnataka (FVCK) has come up with a solution to resolve Karnataka State Open University Open University (KSOU) row, which has created a lot of problems to the students. President of the organisation, Prof S N Hegde, former VC of University of Mysore, says an independent organisation can conduct examination for the students.
“The university is struggling due to the mistakes committed by someone. It is important to find a solution for the 3 lakh students who are struggling. An examination can be conducted by an independent organisation in which students who have passed can be given accreditation. The university and state government should come forward to solve the issue. We are ready to discuss this with the University Grants Commission (UGC),” he added.
“UGC has responded to my letter, citing reasons for cancelling KSOU accreditation. Though the state government is okay with the students being considered for various jobs, it is not possible due to the objection of the Governor,” said Prof Ramegowda.
“It is difficult to get the UGC accreditation for the KSOU for 2018-19 due to technical reasons. The university may get accreditation for the year 2019-20,” said Prof Venkataramaiah.
The former vice-chancellors are unhappy with KSOU, state government and the UGC for not taking suggestions from FVCK. (MR/KMR).
