At least 50 per cent of the Bharathidasan University’s (BDU) revenue is being utilised for meeting the expenses of its 10 constituent colleges most of which were started at the behest of the state government.
However, with the state government no more supporting the running of these colleges, the university is left to fend for itself.
Pushed to a corner, the senate meeting scheduled for March 17 is set to take up this issue as well as that of the government not compensating the university for ceding its land and immovable assets for setting up premier institutes like IIM Trichy.The approved resolution to be discussed at the senate meeting urges the BDU administration to either hand over the colleges to the state government or seek exclusive funds to run them.
Some senate members have also asked the BDU to seek pending compensation from Anna University for giving its land for the BIT campus.“A majority of the cost incurred to run the constituent colleges is met though the general fund of the university,” said senate member V Rajagopal while pointing out that there was a rule that the government would give Rs 1 crore and 10 acres of land to the university to start a constituent college.
While the rule was followed only for the first constituent college started in Perambalur district, it was ignored for the nine other colleges.
