Several members of the Bangalore University Syndicate during a special meeting on Monday are believed to have taken serious exception to differences between the Vice-Chancellor, the Registrar and the Registrar (Evaluation) related to university administration.
According to sources, majority of the Syndicate members were of the view that non-cooperation among the three senior-most officials of the University was affecting the administration besides harming the image of the university.
Also, the Syndicate unanimously resolved to ask the Registrar, Registrar (Evaluation) and the Vice-Chancellor to work in harmony in their day-to-day administration of the University.
The sources said the issue of non-cooperation among three was raised when Registrar M.G. Krishnan and Registrar (Evaluation) M.S. Talwar informed the meeting that they do not have the details of e-governance initiative and the introduction of IT-based security enhancing system for undergraduate examination and evaluation process as the matter was directly dealt by the office of the vice-chancellor.
At this juncture, the sources said, several syndicate members questioned the action of the vice-chancellor in bypassing the Registrar, and the Registrar (Evaluation), appointing several high powered committee's without the knowledge of the syndicate, and also issuance of notification inviting tenders for smart card-based e-governance project even when the syndicate had not given its consent for the project.
Pointing out that the non-cooperation among the three is affecting the administration and image of the university, the sources said the syndicate members asked the trio to work in harmony without sidelining each other.
Meanwhile, the syndicate approved in principal the smart-card project and proposal submitted by Indian entre for Social Transformation to participate in the ongoing examination reforms by the University.
