Kolhan teachers face penalty

Jamshedpur, July 27: The examination board of Kolhan University today decided to bar professor S.S. Razi of Jamshedpur Co-operative College from participating in any examination-related process for three years. Head of the university’s postgraduate department of botany V.K. Singh also cannot take part in any examination process for one year.

The university authorities, who had slapped showcause notices on both the senior professors on June 19 for “breach of confidentiality” and setting out-of-syllabus questions for zoology and botany Part II examinations, took the decision at a meeting conducted at its Chaibasa headquarters today.

According to sources, the quantum of punishment handed over to Singh was lighter as he had confessed to his mistake in front of higher officials.

Examinees appearing for botany Paper IV had claimed that about four questions were not in syllabus. The varsity, after an emergency meeting convened at its Chaibasa headquarters on July 14, submitted a report to the vice chancellor.

According to the report, Razi had not abided by the rules of writing the question manuscript himself and instead got it done by someboday else. Singh, on the other hand, was hauled up for including questions that were out of syllabus.

Though, senior officials chose to remain mum on the meeting sources confirmed the news. “The meeting was attended by all the officials of the university, who took an unanimous decision to bar Razi for three years. The punishment meted out to Singh was lighter,” a source said.
