Existing colleges under Kolhan University renewed their affiliation, while new institutions bagged the varsity seal for courses at a meeting on Tuesday with vice chancellor R.P.P. Singh at the helm.
The affiliation committee meeting was held to check discrepancies in affiliation and induct new ones to help students get more choice.
New entrant JKM College of Commerce and Management, Mango, got affiliation for BSc and BA with 40 seats each, and 60 seats in BCom. Similarly, GIIT in Bistupur also received an affiliation for BCom (honours) with 60 seats.
Karim City College in Sakchi also got its MCA affiliation for 2014-17 on the condition that it would have to address its negatives marked by the university during an inspection, failing which it would be scrapped. This apart, its affiliation for undergraduate courses in Bengali, English, geography and philosophy were granted with MA in Urdu and mass communication.
Netaji Subhas Institute of Business Management, Pokhari, also renewed affiliation for 2014-16. AJK. College, Asanboni, also received a nod for B.A and B.Com courses.
“Most of the decisions came for extension and renewal of courses for already existing colleges. A few were for new ones. We scrutinised all proposals and then went ahead with our decision,” said M.K. Mishra, assistant registrar, Kolhan University.
The varsity also proposed science faculty posts for KS College, Seraikela, and Singhbhum College in Chandil, sending a proposal to state HRD department for maths, physics and chemistry teachers.
