Panel finds fault with Principal

Disruption of centralised valuation camp

Staff Reporter

KOCHI: A syndicate sub-committee of Mahatma Gandhi University has found the Principal of St. Albert's College here responsible for disruption of the centralised valuation camp of fourth semester postgraduate examinations, scheduled to begin at the college on Monday.

The sub-committee members V. Sasidharan and C.S. Menon, who visited the college today, collected evidence from the principal. They will submit a report to the Vice-Chancellor within two days.

The committee has found that the college authorities had refused to conduct the valuation camp on the campus. The camp has been postponed to Thursday, following objection from the college authorities.

Mr. Sasidharan said the committee rejected the principal's claim that there was shortage of space on the college campus for holding the camp. With admissions for the new academic year yet to begin, at least 18 classrooms (11 degree courses and 7 postgraduate programmes) were remaining vacant in the college.

The report of the committee will be discussed at the syndicate meeting to be held on June 30.

The Principal of the College, Leslie Pallath, said that there was shortage of space in the college and this was intimated to the university authorities earlier.
