Send degrees to students by post, UP governor told universities

LUCKNOW: In an online review meeting of two state universities, Chancellor and Governor Anandiben Patel directed their vice-chancellors to ensure that students are not made to run for their degrees. Patel, while addressing the vice-chancellors of Lucknow University and Bhatkhande Sangeet Sansthan Deemed University, said that instead, universities should send degrees to students’ homes by post.

The Governor said that colleges as well as universities should hand over the degrees to the students on time immediately after the convocation. He had earlier suggested creating a database of names, phone numbers and addresses of students for sending degrees by post.

The governor directed the two vice-chancellors to state norms and detailed instructions in the advertisement for hiring faculty. He said that this would ensure transparency in the recruitment process.

Pointing out that 33% of the newly elected village heads are women, the Governor suggested the universities to organize webinars and training sessions to make them aware of public welfare schemes. “Most of the women village heads belong to self-help groups. Universities should make them aware of the evils in the society like dowry, discrimination of male and female children, so that they can motivate women in their villages not to fall prey to such social evils,” Patel told the vice chancellors.

The Governor asked the universities to make arrangements for visits to Nari Niketan hospitals for girls’ learning experience. He further directed the universities to adopt children who have become orphans after losing their parents to COVID-19. Patel said that universities should give home environment to such children.

On financial arrangements, the Governor directed the VCs to list all financial transactions in the cash book and reduce the number of accounts by merging two or more accounts of similar nature. More accounts lead to financial irregularities, she said.

Patel reiterated that universities should take the vaccination of their staff, students and their parents seriously. He directed the Vice Chancellors not to allow outsiders to stay in the residential complexes. The Governor asked the Vice Chancellors to take steps for speedy disposal of cases pending in the High Court.
