2 Out of Every 3 Colleges Affiliated to Mumbai University are Unfit: CAG Report

Dec 17, 2013 18:58 IST

    In a latest CAG report, it has been revealed that 2 out of every 3 colleges affiliated to Mumbai University are lacking permanent affiliation and hence, unfit to function. Out of 741 colleges affiliated to Mumbai University, 564 do not have permanent affiliation that indicates some deficiency in the execution of those  colleges that are older than six years.

    The state's CAG auditor has come up with this report under the Right to Information Act.

    To give affiliation to a college, factors like infrastructure, teachers, library and administration, that ensures quality, should be taken into account. But, the university has turned a blind eye towards colleges lacking even these basic amenities.

    Even some colleges have been granted affiliation without any prior inspection, said the report. The CAG also points out that the existing inspection reports are vague, not quantifiable against norms.

    As said by the CAG auditor's report, notwithstanding the lack of important facilities in various colleges continuously for years together, the Local Inquiry Council (LIC) recommends continuation of affiliation, encouraging defaulting colleges to continue without the fulfillment of conditions. The report further said that as this practice has been continued for about 30 years, it can be concluded that this has had a detrimental effect on the quality of education and academic career of students in the state.
