During a special academic council meeting the affiliation of 154 first-grade colleges and 30 BEd colleges were also renewed.
For the past 10-12 years, UoM had not given permission to start new BEd colleges. But during the meeting, the members decided to give permission to start two new BEd colleges – one each in Mandya Hunsur.
Among the 30 renewed BEd colleges, 24 were approved subject to fulfilment of conditions. It’s the same with the colleges which are given approval to start PG courses. Of the 14 colleges, which are given permission to start various PG courses like MSc, MCom and MA, 11 are given permission on the condition that they will fulfil the conditions, ToI reported.
