Mangalore University Academy councilMangalore: In a significant action taken by Mangalore University Academic Council on Thursday, it refused to toe the state Government line to grant permission to start new PG courses in the Government Degree Colleges as demanded by these colleges, not having suitable infrastructure.
The state had asked last week seven Government Degree Colleges coming under MU to introduce PG courses in 2011-12 academic year. Vice-chancellor Prof. Shivashankar Murthy addressing a special sitting of the Academic Council at the Senate Hall stated that PG courses needed infrastructure in all these 7 colleges.
The council did not permit 11 courses demanded by 6 colleges. It also declined permission to 2 First Grade Colleges in Hebri and Bantwal. A college at Barkur was allowed to start PG course in Mathematics only.
The VC stated that poor faculty and infrastructure facilities did not encourage PG courses in Vittla (M.Com) and Uppinangady (MA-Kannada). New norms were laid down for fresh Post-Graduate courses from 2012.
