    The Gujarat University (GU) syndicate members owing affiliation to the BJP have decided to press for reconsideration of the decision to give permanent affiliation to those self-financed colleges that have completed five years. The decision was taken at the syndicate meeting last week.The BJP members will raise this issue in the next syndicate meeting scheduled for next month. A large number of such colleges are being run by syndicate members themselves.

    Sources said that the university has not bothered to inspect any of these colleges in the last five years with regards to their enrolment, faculty and infrastructure. According to rules, a committee is required to go and verify these aspects every year and submit a report to the university and the varsity is expected to ask these colleges to put things in order if there are any shortcomings brought to its notice.

    The BJP members are of the view that once they get permanent affiliation, the college managements will not bother for the university any longer. With the probability of a new vice-chancellor being appointed before the next meeting, they want to bring the reconsideration of the decision on the agenda.

    Most of these self-financed colleges lack in faculty and do not have an ideal teacher-student ratio. A greater number of student enrolments mean more income for the management.
