By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangaluru: : The examination and evaluation scam is hitting KSOU badly but no one is taking any action on KSOU.As per the KSOU Act, 1996, reportedly there is no provision for academic collaboration. Still, the KSOU board of management 'introduced' five statutes through the Karnataka State Open University (Academic Collaboration Statutes - 2011). AIUPASA demanding that KSOU need to adopt information management system like open ERP or SAP and run its entire work with total computerization and simple manageable procedures and transparent management instead of doing it manually which is root cause of reported unlimited corruption.. AIUPASA (www.aiupasa.org)NATIONAL PRESIDENT MUMTHAZ AHMED KHAN MOBILE NUMBER 0-9916390790 and his teamdid 24/7 efforts to get justice to students of KSOU .AIUPASA is demanding KSOU to stream lines the procedures for Admission to Examination to awarding of degree and adopt transparent systemand eradicate the unlimited corruption that exists in the in KSOUsubsystems . The KSOU is not fulfilling its part of responsibilities as per MOU signed by KSOU and collaborative partners. Admission to examination to awarding of degree KSOU is flouting all norms of University and this is reportedly root cause of corruption. Collaborators are forced to give bribe otherwise they will face problems in admission of students and declaring the results or they issue show cause notice. Reportedly and allegedly the VC is root of all problems as it is reported that he has not conducted single examination of partner's institution student's examination by his team of examiners and only demanding bribe from collaborators. KSOU has not evaluated the answer sheets partner's institution student's examination by KSOU. Who conducts the examination in KSOU and who evaluates the answers sheets and who declares the results of partner's institution student's examination is the mystery which CID/CBI must investigate. Academic council must limit its activities towards academics and syndicate should limit its activities for policy decisions and framing regulations.
