University mulls panel to instil discipline

Bhim Rao Ambedkar Bihar University, Muzaffarpur, is designing the draft for constitution of the proctorial board in the university.

Pandit Palande, the newly appointed vice-chancellor (VC) of the university, has given consent to proctor Ajay Kumar Srivastava and registrar Vivekanand Shukla to begin necessary exercises to form a proctorial board.

The VC is learnt to have expressed anger over the growing instances of indiscipline among students of the postgraduate departments and constituent colleges.

Proctor Srivastava said the university would soon have a proctorial board on the pattern of central universities. “The university is at present studying the draft of proctorial board on the pattern of Delhi University, Jawaharlal Nehru University and Banaras Hindu University for fruitful adoption,” he said.

The university has taken the decision after necessary consultation with the VC following frequent disturbances. The proctor will head the board and teachers belonging to postgraduate departments would be its members for assisting in building an academic ambience and discipline. “The board would look after certain rules and regulations framed by the university to be followed to maintain the cordial atmosphere in the academic institution,” said the proctor.

The board would be chiefly responsible for maintaining discipline and academic mood among the students. VC Palende has asked all the principals of constituent and affiliated colleges to set up a disciplinary committee in the institutions within a fortnight.
