After the Tamil Nadu government launched an elaborate exercise to profile migrant labourers across the state and create a data bank, universities have also started a similar exercise. While some universities claimed the Union human resource development ministry had asked for such a database of students from outside the state, some others said “it was the police who had sought the details”. University of Madras vice chancellor, G Thiruvasagam, told TOI, Following a communication from the human resource department, the state higher education department has written to us. We were asked to furnish the database of students from other states.
After the state government launched an elaborate exercise to profile migrant labourers across the state and create a databank of their personal information, universities and other educational institutions have also joined in undertaking a similar exercise among students. We were asked to furnish the database of students from other states. He said 20% of the university students were from other states. A sizeable chunk stays outside the hostel. So we were asked to furnish their residential addresses and mobile numbers. We have 150 affiliated colleges and we have asked them all to furnish details, he said. “The purpose of seeking such information was not communicated to us”, he said. Officials in the state higher education department were tightlipped on the issue.
