Marks card stolen; JU not bothered, say sources
Jammu and Kashmir
Jammu, Apr 20: If reports in a leading local daily are to be believed, Jammu University has once again made headlines by showing hesitation in finding a committee which will have to inquire into the reasons behind issuing fictitious marks cards to students. This has been done despite submission of this report to the higher concerned authorities.
According to the local daily, a three members committee headed by Prof. Neeru Sharma, HOD Home Science, revealed that during investigation, the marks cards book bearing serial No. 2300 with 100 leaves was surprisingly missing.
The problem had come to fore when three students whose fake marks cards were seized, had reportedly carried serial numbers from within untraceable marks card books.
This led to the thought that if students had been able to procure marks cards from missing books, it could be big nexus between middlemen and officers of examination wing.
Adding that this required a high level probe, and to find out the corrupt, all the important figures dealing with the functioning of examination wing should be investigated as Home Science is an important part of the University.
The sources told that University had setup an inquiry committee to lodge FIR in this matter of stealing of relevant record from office of Controller of Examination. So, action can be taken on the defaulting students from appearing further in examination and also on staff of concerned section sitting in examinations.
The sources in the University further told that pretty long stay of some personnel in examination section have obtained possession of the section allotted to them due to long stay at one place.
The sources have also expressed that, inquiry report submitted by the committee to the office of VC has fallen on deaf ears.
Sources Further added that the authority in the university seems to be not in a serious mood to take an action on the those who are involved in this surprising missing of marks cards indicating it may be an attempt to shelter the defaulters and not to spoil the image of University.
