OU PG campus begins at Medak
With last year’s controversy still fresh in memory, the Osmania University administration has made slight changes in the Ph D entrance system. It has decided to introduce the ranks system for the qualifiers in the order and depending upon the number of vacancies of each department, the top few will be called for the interview.
Announcing this at a media conference on Monday, Vice-Chancellor Professor S Satyanarayana said the guidelines are being worked out on the ranking system. Seats for the reserved categories will also be there, he added.
This may not be of much help since, in the Ph D admissions, the qualifiers of NET and SET would take away major chunk. Just around 20 per cent of seats will be available for the entrance pass outs.
Till last year, only cut off mark system was implemented and those who were above the cut off, had been called for oral test. This led to huge competition for few seats and there were allegations of favoritism.
A professor was assaulted, departments were locked up and several ineligible candidates were also admitted last year. Meanwhile, a Post Graduate College under Osmania University was formally launched at Jogipet in Medak district on Monday by the Vice-Chancellor. Five PG courses will be offered from the next academic year- MBA, MA (English), MSc (Organic Chemistry), MSc (Mathematics) and MLISc. A sum of Rs 26.31 crores will be spent for the development of infrastructure at the college. The college was nearer to Andole, the constituency of Damodara Rajanarsimha, Deputy Chief Minister.
With regard to recruitment of teachers at OU, Prof Satyanarayana said except 12 candidates, the remaining 180 successful candidates have joined the duty.
