BGSBU losing sheen; Students feel dejected
Rajouri, Nov 20: The prestigious Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University Rajouri is losing its prestige – at least among the engineering students, who alleged that the administration is playing with their career.
The University, which came into existence following an Act passed by the state legislature, has a full fledged College of Engineering and Technology. However, students allege that even the first batch of the college is struggling either to clear their backlog subjects or to find placement in the reputed companies.
“The University administration is not serious about the career of the hundreds of students. Its callous attitude has already spoiled the career of many”, one of the aggrieved student alleged claiming, “The university lacks the requisite infrastructure and teaching faculty and it has failed to keep pace with the changing trend in the engineering world”.
The students, who are now up in arms against the university authorities seeking introduction of supplementary examination system, say, “It is very unfortunate that the examinations were not being conducted in time creating lot of problems for the students.”
They claimed that the results are announced more than eight months after examination that too without giving any option to the students to rectify their weakness in the supplementary examination.
“Number of students even from the first two batches were still struggling with the present system of the examination”, a student claimed adding, “Last year the examination were conducted in May and the result was announced in November. Now again the students, who failed to make it through, will have to wait till May-June, next year, to appear in the examination for their backlog subjects”.
“Why University has not been able to even give Statue Marks to some of the students, who had backlog only in one subjects”, a student questioned adding, “This procedure is adopted everywhere except in BGSBU. This would have saved precious year of many students”.
The supplementary examination system was only one of the demands of the agitating students. They claimed that the University has also failed to attract corporate sector to have in-campus recruitment process.
