Petition to Uttarakhand Legislative Assembly, Honourable Governor of Uttarakhand, Indian Parliament, Prime Minister of India - Shri Narendra Modi Ji

Enquiry Commission for Corruption in Pantnagar University

Since the inception of legal cell in 1998, about 600 cases have been registered in different courts against Pantnagar University. Presently more than 100 cases are pending against this university. It clearly proves that the authorities in Pantnagar university are not delivering their assigned duties honestly and hence they are wasting the precious time and money of poor public provided to them for their salaries and other expenditures. Most of the poor public money collected from taxes and provided to Pantnagar university by state govt/ICAR is wasting in the legal proceeding in court cases and several appeals in information commission & human right commission, etc. Pantnagar University receives much more funds than IITs but still conditions of Labs and basic needs in campus are not good.It is requested everybody to participate in the campaign against corruption in Pantnagar so that we can request to the honorable Prime Minister of India/Chief Minister of Uttarakhand for setting up an Enquiry Commission. Keeping silent on this issue will only support and promote some corrupt people sitting on top of this university. Following are the main points related to corruption in Pantnagar University: 1. Workers and Teachers are not treated with respect and their basic needs are not satisfied. They have gone for long strikes in past but still no one listen to them. 2. The condition of Labs in G.B.P.U.A&T Pantnagar are pathetic. Some labs have instruments from the late 70s or 80s and they don't work. 3. Not implementing the UGC regulation 2009 & 2016 related to minimum standards for awarding the M.Phil and Ph.D. Degree. 4. Harassment of students by applying the Academic probation (A.P.) & Conduct Probation (C.P.) in a wrong manner. 5. Withholding/extending the degree of the student by wrongly getting rejected the thesis of students by the external examiner. 6. Carrying out the Ph.D. research in university in different departments without having the lab & library facility as per UGC Regulation 2016. 7. Many times Teachers and Workers have called strikes but no solution was found. Workers demands are not properly treated. 8. Issue of fake Ph.D. degree certificates by registrar office. 9. Wastage of public money in several court proceedings/appeals/etc, because most the officials/employees are not delivering their assigned duties. 10. No implementation of e-tender in the university. Because of this, there are chances of corruption in issuing the tender. 11. There is no recruitment of permanent and honest vice-chancellor. Present acting vice -chancellor is only promoting the corruption in the university. 12. The post of the registrar is not directly filled by Uttarakhand Govt. 13. The University does not follow the roaster system in the recruitment of HOD, Dean & Director, etc. The same person is being repeated on the same post in his 2nd or third term and so on. 14. There is no clear policy for the dependent of the deceased person of the university. 15. Teachers and Workers both have their Unions to Raise their voice but unfortunately, there is no Union or committee for Student Voice. This is the clear violation of our fundamental rights. 16.Recruitments made in last five years are very questionable. There are many cases filed for these recruitments. Many RTIs have been misguided and ignored regarding the process of the same. 17. Teacher visits abroad in the name of research paper presentation but returned back without any paper presentation 18. About 2000 Ph.D. degree holders of GBPUAT Pantnagar are not eligible to apply for the suitable position due to not having Ph.D. degree as per UGC Regulation 2009. The University has not implemented these regulations fully even after passing 8 years. If university implements these regulations fully then the student have to publish a research paper in a journal and the rank of the university will improve. For publishing a paper the Advisor and student will have to work hard, but they don't want to do hard work. Thus an Enquiry Commission should be set up to remove the corruption from Pantnagar University.

Petition to Dr. Karisiddappa, Dr. H. N. Jagannatha Reddy, Dr. Satish Annigeri

Visvesvaraya Technological Institute (VTU) Playing with engineer's lives?

So where do I start from, After writing my entrance exams, i got into an engineering college which is affiliated to VTU, Belgavi. I didn't know what exactly it is and how does the system work. After a whole year or more, the true nature of VTU surfaced.  I strongly say it's a failed system of education. Which University takes 4 months to give you your result? Oh no, that's just the starters. They even lost our Internal Assessment marks during this waiting period. Bravo VTU. So we had to resend all of our marks again. Next month is supposed to be our end-sem examination when our previous semester examination results haven't yet been announced.  Their syllabus is outdated. A multinational corporation had said, "we will not be hiring engineers from VTU as their knowledge on the current world is next to zero" he also said our syllabus is very much outdated. They haven't revised the portions in years. Oh and the examination dates, they are more uncertain than rains here in India. They will release more than 3 revised time tables in a due course of a month or less. We have no clue what's going on over there and I'm pretty sure they don't have a clue either. Nothing is organised, even though the University is 19 years old now.  When they mess up by rescheduling they take away our holidays. Is this fair? After we put up with their nonsense we need to sacrifice everything to get zero returns? Until the previous year VTU has been a corrupted University, with cases of receiving bribes from colleges to postpone the examination in order to complete their syllabus. Really?  What have the students done to VTU that we deserve this. If I knew this was the case of VTU, i would never have entered it. This is the pain and agony of every VTU student not just one or two. How much longer can we take in all this? How much longer do you think we can last?  DO NOT JOIN A COLLEGE UNDER VTU. I hope this is taken into consideration and I hope it reaches to the authorities responsible for all of our problems. I need everyone's support for this change. This has to be done. I'm sorry but it's very frustrating to witness all of this. It's just not right. I hope every VTU student helps share this petition.

Petition to Dr. Somashekar Bhat

Request to change ECE Section A's lecturer for LDCS.

Dear HOD Sir, Prof. K Prabhakar Nayak took lectures for our section for AEC in our 3rd semester. The Professor, though very knowledgeable, somehow failed to clear our concepts in the subject. We all have genuinely tried paying attention in quite a few of his lectures, fearing our inability to understand the subject, but failed to develop any interest. However, that wasn't the case when we would go back to our rooms and read through the books ourselves. In fact, we all found the subject to be quite interesting. Sir, when we attend a class we wish to learn most of the content in the class itself and therefore, only leaving the revision part for our rooms. However, we were unable to grasp most of the content from his lectures for the entire semester, resulting in us going back and learning every single topic ourselves, from reference books or through friends in other sections. We feared that our grades would drop, seeing how our friends in other sections were finding the subject to be really easily. Unfortunately that is what happened. A good number of students ended up getting low grades in AEC and it being a 4 credit course affected our overall GPA. All of this was reflected in the feedback given to Professor at the end of that semester.  Now, in the released timetable for 5th semester we see Dr. KPN teaching us Linear and Digital Control Systems. It is our section's sincere request that some action be taken, fetching us a solution for our problem, as we fear that the same fate would bestow upon us in this semester too. As per our observation, the issues would be:1. Failure in explaining the concepts and how to approach problems.2. Won't hear us out or our doubts completely. He'd listen of course but he'd fail to understand what we are trying to convey leading to misunderstandings and lack of clarity in concepts. 3. Inactive classroom sessions.  A solution which we would suggest would be that Dr. KPN be replaced by another faculty for this semester. We trust you to take the right decision. Thanking you Yours sincerelyECE - Sec ABatch of 2018

Petition to Hon'ble Chief Justice Shiavax Jal Vazifdar, Sh. Ram Bilas Sharma, Sh. Anil Vij (Health&Med. Edu.,Ayush Minister)

High Application Fees in Bd Sharma Univ. of Health Science of Haryana for Gen. Category

This a petition on behalf of all students of general category who have paid or will pay the high entrance examination fees of Pt. Bd Sharma University of Health Science,Rohtak.They are taking high amount of fees from general students for the entrance exam of 2016-17 for admission to Bsc(various streams),B.Pharmacy,BAMS,BHMS,BPT in all govt. seats of various colleges.I downloaded prospectus from the site of that university and read that thoroughly.They write that this prospectus is only for info and buy a printed prospectus along with admission form from the university.First of all why are they giving printed prospectus as we need it only for info it is uploaded on their site by them?Why are they wasting paper and money for printing prospectus booklet?We need printed application form for admission as offline method.This all can be saved by doing this online as Guru Jambheswar University,Hisar is doing.My Real question is that why they are doing injustice with general category students?They had written Rs 2400 for General Category and Rs 600 for all BC categories.They are taking 4 times more fees from us.There can be a fees difference of 2 times i.e they can take double amount form us of 1200.Why we will pay 4 times more fees?This means that God did a mistake to make us born in general Category.Think about all the general category students live in villages.They are poor.And all students will not fit in EBC 3% quota.Their fathers work as a farmer and earn some money for them.I request you to finish off this 3% EBC quota.And Make available all seats in General.There is Nothing written in our constitution for proving economically backward quota.So Request Hon'ble High Court & Education Minister of Haryana to direct Pt. Bd. Sharma University of Health Science,Rohtak to take reasonable fees and not do so much difference between GC and BC students.
