HRD Minister Kapil Sibal Suggests Setting up of Council of Deemed to be Universities

Source : India Education Diary
June 28, 2012

 

Date: 28th June 2012

New Delhi: A meeting of the Vice Chancellors of Deemed to be Universities was held under the Chairmanship of Union Minister for Human Resource Development, Shri Kapil Sibal, here today to discuss about the Joint Entrance Examination for admission to Engineering courses and implementation of uniform accounting standards in these institutions. In his inaugural address, he suggested the setting up of a Council for all the Deemed to be Universities to co-ordinate matters of common interest with representation of Vice Chancellors, prominent academicians and UGC/MHRD.



Kapil Sibal

The concept and modalities of Joint Entrance Examination were explained to the participants and detailed discussions were held. It was explained to them that the proposal was to have a single exam in engineering giving weightage to School Board marks for all CFTI (Centrally Funded Technical Institutions) and the Deemed to be Universities were welcome to join it so that not only the system of exam is streamlined but also reduces the stress and inconvenience on the students. Deemed to be Universities would have the freedom to choose appropriate weightages for performance in Class XII Boards and JEE.MAIN/ AIEEE normalised on percentile basis. Deemed to be Universities wanting to give 100% weightage to Class XII Board marks performance for admission was also welcomed. However, the stress was on having no other test in addition to the above.

After detailed discussions practically, the Deemed to be Universities welcomed the proposal of having a single exam in Engineering giving weightage to school Board marks. They assured the minister that they would be intimating their decision on the weightages for the two Board marks and AIEEE exam. Those institutions which have concerns, may also indicate their concerns and a separate meeting could be held with them to resolve the situation.

It was also clarified by Shri Sibal that this will not affect the management quota as also reservation for the weaker sections of the society. 

The second presentation was on adoption of uniform accounting standards in all the Deemed to be Universities. It was decided to organize the Capacity Building Programme, on uniform accounting standards through UGC and its adoption by the Deemed to be Universities in collaboration with ICAI for all Deemed to be Universities. A standard e-package of the accounting system would be provided to all the educational institutions including Deemed to be Universities.
