RYM Nagpur University (RTMNU) has decided to cancel the affiliation of 72 of its colleges, which are not in compliance with the Board of Colleges and University Development (BCUD) criteria.
The final approval on this decision will be taken at the meeting of the BCUD which is planned to be held soon.
According to information, BCUD had issued the notice to 75 colleges which are not complying with BCUD guidelines. However, only 3 out of these 75 colleges responded to the notice concerned and requested some time from the BCUD to comply with guidelines. Meanwhile, rest of the 72 colleges did not reply to the BCUD notice.
Five reminders were also sent and these all the colleges were warned of disaffiliation from the university. However, in spite of all these warnings, the colleges did not reply to the BCUD notice. Hence, BCUD has decided to disaffiliate these erring colleges.
Presently, 662 colleges are affiliated to RTMNU. If these colleges are disaffiliated, then the number will go down to 590 colleges.
In the year 2013 also, RTMNU had blacklisted 250 colleges without regular teachers.
The university had also initiated disaffiliation action against these erring colleges.
These college managements are planning to approach the court in this matter against RTM Nagpur university.
