Bangalore University's much anticipated Exam Adalat, originally scheduled in January, will now be held from April 26, according to a release. Nearly 4,000 such cases pending with the university from November 2002 will be dealt with in the adalat.
The adalat will deal with a host of problems including non-issue of marks cards, faulty marks cards, wrong names, and results not declared.
A retired High Court judge, who is yet to be named, will adjudicate and the decisions taken at the adalat will be binding on the students as well as on the university/colleges. When the proposal was announced last year, Vice-Chancellor N. Prabhu Dev had said it would require three months to clear the backlog, and that the students can be present themselves or be represented by lawyers.
The adalat will begin on April 26 at 11 a.m. in the Jnana Jyothi Auditorium, Central College campus. The principals of affiliated colleges have been invited to attend the inauguration. The adalat will function from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the notified days in the Syndicate Hall, Central College campus.
Details for submission of grievances/complaints can be obtained from the Legal Cell, Central College Campus, Bangalore 560 001. For more information call 22961269/22212051. The colleges will be informed about the dates of hearing of their grievances/complaints.
