Stop Students Admissions Till Statutes Is Approved: Pb Govt To Khalsa Univ

Chandigarh: Just day before when the controversial Khalsa University Amritsar, was to start with its  admission process the Punjab Government here on Thursday asked the university management to hold admissions till it gets its statutes approved.

The education department of the state government sent a communique to the university management on Thursday, enquiring whether it had got its statutes and regulations approved from the state government, media sources said.

As per the Khalsa University Act, 2016, the governing body comprising the chancellor, vicechancellor, educationists, experts and secretary higher education, or his representative, is empowered to make statutes for smooth functioning of the university. These have to be submitted to the state government for nod, reads a quote in an English vernacular.

But when contacted by media the Spokesman of the Khalsa college Governing Consul (KCGC) outrightly declined and  said that the management had not received any letter. Khalsa University registrar JS Dhillon also told HT that he had not received any communication from the higher education secretary in this regard.

It was promised by Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh that the government would scrap  the Khalsa University legislation, as during his stint as a Member parliament from Amritsar he had  decried that such move will subvert the “heritage status” of the Khalsa college.

“We don’t want children to suffer. The university should not enrol new students until its own future is known,” he had said on Tuesday.
