Blame university authorities for failing to secure UGC, PCI recognition for the course

B.Pharm students of Satavahana University have raised a banner of revolt against the university authorities for failing to secure recognition of the University Grants Commission and Pharmacy Council of India (PCI)).

About 280 students staged a dharna at the University PG College on Thursday demanding adequate facilities and PCI recognition.

The students alleged that the university had failed to provide classrooms, laboratories and library for studying the professional course. They also alleged that the authorities had also failed to appoint regular teaching staff.

P. Anil Goud, students said that the authorities had failed to provide equipment and necessary chemicals to conduct practicals.

“We have been pleading the authorities to appoint regular teachers, but in vain. We urged the university to at least secure PCI recognition, but it was also in vain.”

Another student alleged that the university examination branch was plagued with irregularities. The online results said that the students had passed, but when the students secured marks memo, it showed that they had failed.

When the college principal and Registrar did not visit the college to pacify the students, TRS MLC Naradasu Laxman Rao rushed to the spot and flayed the university authorities for their alleged negligent attitude. He promised to raise the issue in the Legislative Council and threatened to launch agitation for sanction of funds to the university.
