MP Governor calls for CCTV surveillance for varsity exams
Indore: Madhya Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel on Friday said the coming examinations of government-run universities in the state should be conducted under the surveillance of CCTV cameras.
Being the governor, Patel is the Chancellor of all the universities run by the state government.
Speaking at the convocation of Devi Ahilya University here, she said, "CCTV cameras should be installed in all buildings of the state-run universities where written or oral examinations will be conducted in the coming days."
This would ensure a transparent examination system, Patel said. Vice chancellors of all the universities have been asked to visit Bhopal on April 6 and present annual calendars of their respective institutions, Patel said.
The calendar is supposed to have the schedule of examinations, deadline for declaration of results and details of academic and cultural activities planned for the coming year.
Universities should change the curriculum according to the need of the times and also introduce new courses, the governor said.
Hailing the Union government's campaigns to promote cleanliness and water conservation, the former Gujarat chief minister said that research for PhD should be encouraged in these areas.
