Kupwara college BCA deptt lacks infrastructure, staff
Kupwara, June 12: The students pursuing Bachelors in Computer Application through Government Degree College Kupwara have complained that their department lacked proper infrastructure and faculty.
“The Department is operating from a single room, two years after it was established, causing immense hardships to the students,” the students told Greater Kashmir.
They said the department was facing shortage of teachers, adversely affecting the studies of students. “The department has only two teachers who take six classes each everyday,” they said adding the faculty was not able to do justice with their job due to large number of students.
“We have attended just three mathematics classes during last three months. How can we complete our syllabus,” a student questioned.
The students said the computer laboratory was also defunct. “Out of the ten computers, only one is in working condition,” they said, adding the students were also not able to use that also due to non-availability of electricity.
“During last three months, we have done laboratory work for just ten times,” the students added
The students accuse the college administration of indifference saying despite repeated pleas and numerous representations, the officials haven’t done anything substantial to redress the issues. “We intimated the principal about the shortfalls in the department and also highlighted them on the university website, but nothing has been done till date,” the students said.
Meanwhile, the students from science stream also complained that their laboratories were without reagents and other chemical, necessary for conducting experiments. “We aren’t doing any practical in the laboratory from the last few weeks,” they said adding the officials, despite being apprised about the dearth of chemicals, hadn’t purchased any till date.
The college authorities acknowledge that the grievances of students were genuine. “I have conveyed the shortfalls in the department to high authorities,” college Principal, Farooq Ahmad Malik told Greater Kashmir adding the deficiencies would be addressed soon.
