The Raj Bhavan has asked universities and colleges in the state to send their activities’ calendar regularly for the perusal of Governor-cum-Chancellor Satya Pal Malik.
In a circular issued to the Vice-Chancellors of all the universities, the Governor’s Secretariat observed that universities and colleges are centres of major academic and extra-curricular activities.
“Universities are not only conducting classes, examinations and publishing results, but also organizing sports meet, debates, seminars, workshops and refresher and orientation courses,” it said.
The circular states, “It has been noticed that governor’s secretariat is not informed about major activities undertaken by universities and colleges affiliated to them. It is only through the newspapers and other sources of information that the governor’s secretariat comes to know about major academic and extra-curricular activities undertaken by universities and their colleges.”
Principal Secretary to the Chancellor Brijesh Mehrotra said the chancellor desires that all universities keep chancellor’s secretariat informed about major activities being undertaken at the university and college level.
Acting on this circular, Patna University (PU) has asked the heads of all postgraduate departments and principals of colleges to send the activities’ calendar and also report the major activities undertaken by their respective institutions so that the same could be forwarded to the chancellor’s secretariat.
