Patna: The chancellor’s office on Monday convened a meeting with vice-chancellors of the universities to review the varsities’ functioning.
The meeting in absence of Governor Satya Pal Malik was attended by principal secretary to governor, Vivek Kumar Singh, education department principal secretary R.K. Mahajan, and vice-chancellors of universities.
The VCs were asked to regularise and maintain the academic calendar so that sessions at the universities don’t get delayed. The chancellor’s office also directed the VCs to carry out the admission process at the universities online to bring more transparency.
The chancellor’s office directed the universities to complete the examination process so that the new session could start on time.
The session at the state universities commence from July-August.
A VC who attended the meeting said: “The chancellor’s office apart from reviewing the functioning of the universities, directed us to speed up the process to hold a combined entrance test for BEd admissions.”
The chancellor’s office and Raj Bhavan of late have initiated a number of steps to streamline teachers’ education. There are a total of 212 teachers’ training colleges in Bihar, most of which have so far been functioning arbitrarily, throwing all norms of regulatory bodies such as National Council for Teacher Education to the wind.
“The combined BEd entrance test will bring transparency in the admission process,” he said.
