Gujarat Technological University (GTU) has now made it mandatory for all 455 technical colleges to furnish attendance of its students on a day-to-day basis instead of once a year. Colleges will be required to send attendance details online every day. GTU registrar G. P. Vadodaria, said; the strict attendance norms have been enforced to ensure students fulfill the 75 per cent attendance mandatory criteria for eligibility to take university exams. GTU officials said that “there are reports that many students complete only 40-45 per cent of the mandatory attendance. Since the university relied on details furnished by colleges, GTU has now decided to tighten its grip on the issue of attendance”.
“GTU has provided a user ID and password to principals and department heads of each college. The attendance would be recorded online and sent to GTU which would then compute the total attendance itself”, said Vadodaria. The daily attendance system has been implemented in degree and diploma engineering colleges from January 13th and 17th respectively. In MBA and MCA colleges, the system was implemented from 2nd Feb, Thursday. Students protest lack of staff, equipment; varsity issues notice:Nearly 150 students of Gujarat Institute of Engineering and Technology (GIET), Prantij held a protest demonstration at Gujarat Technological University (GTU) campus on Friday saying that “their college did not have adequate teachers to teach them. Students said; there was hardly any, permanent faculty members at the college and teachers changed on a weekly basis. Students also complained that the college did not have the equipment needed to carry out lab work because of which they were not able to study engineering through practical work. Taking note of the protesting students and their issues, the GTU office has sent a notice to the college. “We have sent a notice to the college and have also decided to carry out surprise checks at the college premises to look into the complaints of the students. A team of six members headed by a dean would be sent to the college”, GTU registrar G.P. Vadodaria said.
