College Teachers Accuse UGB Exam Deptt of Inefficiency
MALDA, 15 JUNE: Teachers and non teaching employees of Gazole College today rushed to University of Gour Banga (UGB) seeking the vice chancellor (VC) Prof Achintya Biswas’s interference in solving the crisis regarding the filling in of forms for graduation third year examinations. VC, however, referred the matter to the controller of examinations (COE) department saying the college didn’t submit the papers in time.
This may be mentioned that controversies over the delayed publication of results and that also full of errors have been going on since long. Different students’ organizations have been organizing continuous movements claiming that the UGB authorities are playing with the fate of the students. Leaders of students’ organizations said that a large number of students are yet to know their fate after they had applied for reassessment. UGB authorities have meanwhile declared that the final examinations would commence from fourth week of June.
Today the teacher in charge of Gazole College Mithu Deb and others alleged that they were surprised to receive a letter from varsity on 13 June that said that the last date of sending papers for final examinations was 12 June. “It’s unfortunate that the varsity has no system of communicating urgent matters properly,” Mr Deb said. He informed that at least 10 students who are yet to know their fate after reassessment pressing them to resove their problem while the college authorities had nothing to do in that regard.
College teachers also alleged that when two students who had already filled in their forms came to the university yesterday, they were shown mark-sheets and told that they had already passed. But their mark-sheets were not sent to the college. “Such discrepancies have excited the students are we the teachers and non teaching employees are being targeted by the students for no fault of our own,” Mr Deb said.
The delegation of teachers met the VC and ventilated their grudges.
Later Prof Biswas said, “Either the college teachers didn’t understand the instructions from the varsity or there’s a communication gap between the college office and the teachers. How can they claim that they had received the letter late?” “There’s no question of entertaining demands of all and sundry without being looked into those. However, there’s a humanitarian side too. I’ve asked them to meet the deputy COE to find a solution.”
