Nagpur: On Tuesday i.e. on June 8, 2010, Nagpur University has announced ban on enrollment for upcoming session 2010 - 2011 to 353 colleges, which have not appointed full-time principals, according to the statement issued by an official.
In addition, the official has also mentioned that the University is following the orders of the Bombay High Court which had given these directives. He also added that these directives had to be implemented by May 31. As per sources, the University has uploaded the list of the errant colleges. It is found that many of them are run by leading state politicians. Last week, S.N. Pathan, Vice Chancellor of the Nagpur University had specified that the university would declare the names of such colleges, which had failed to appoint a full-time principal by June 7.
Furthermore, the official added that the list is not complete and names of more colleges could be added in the coming days. However, he declined to comment when asked whether these colleges would be given some more time to comply with the directives. Moreover, according to an official source in Mumbai even other state universities are likely to follow suit and initiate similar measures against colleges which do not appoint a full-time principal.
