As out of eight districts falling under the ambit of RDU none of the lead colleges have installed the CCTV thus making mock of Governor’s directives. Besides the alleged claims made by colleges having installed CCTV have also prove fake as none of the colleges are linked with the RDU control room

Shocking but true, that even the directives issued by State Governor Anandi Ben Patel to install CCTV in all examination centres to ensure hassle free examination has failed to leave any impact on Rani Durgawati University(RDU) administration. Apparently the directives issued by the state Governor have vaporised in air. As out of eight districts falling under the ambit of RDU none of the lead colleges have installed the CCTV thus making mock of Governor’s directives. Besides the alleged claims made by colleges having installed CCTV have also prove fake as none of the colleges are linked with the RDU control room. On the top of it, apathy at the RDU is that the CCTV allegedly installed at Vikram Sarabhai Bhawan of the university are not connected with the control room.

According to information the annual pattern of examination transposing the semester pattern have started across all universities though marred by employees strike. Despite the fact that employees by and large are on strike the universities making sparse use of resources have however started with examination. But the mandatory directives issued by the State Governor to install CCTV remains to get installed creating ample scope for mismanagement in examination.

About the directives pertaining to installation of CCTV in all examinations centres of universities was issued by the office of State Governor and was ratified by department of Higher Education who also issued directives to all Government and granted colleges to ensure that CCTV gets installed by the start of examination. As things fail to move in the right direction with RDU, it is informed that the work of install CCTV in all examination centres falling under the ambit of University remains to started through university examinations have already begun. About the eight district falling under the RDU namely Balaghat, Dindori, Narsinghpur, Katni, Chhindawara, Mandla, Seoni and Jabalpur.

Barring Jabalpur where lead college is Government Autonomous Mahakaushal College, the college being autonomous no university examination is conducted. As the autonomous colleges have their own mode of examination system. No other lead college at Balaghat, Dindori, Narsinghpur, Katni, Chhindawara, Mandla, Seoni have installed CCTV in their respective examination centre while the RDU administration continues with its blind eye on the important directives issued by the State Governor and DHE. An attempt was made to ascertain as within Jabalpur city how many colleges having examination centre of RDU have installed CCTV at their examinations centers. Barring the autonomous colleges none of the colleges both government and granted colleges have installed CCTV up to set parameters of RDU control room. Besides none of the district lead colleges and other big colleges at Balaghat, Dindori, Narsinghpur, Katni, Chhindawara, Mandla, Seoni are equipped with CCTV.

When contacted Professor Rakesh Bajpaiee Exam Controller RDU said the alleged report that we have received states that out of 65 examination centers spread across our jurisdiction CCTV have been installed in 61 examination centres. When asked whether the alleged installation of CCTV in 61 examination centre linked with RDU control room for its optimal implementation, he said that the process remains awaited. About the Vikram Sarabhai university examination center at the RDU, Professor Bajpaiee said the CCTV has been installed under the set parameters of the center but is also not linked with the central control room.

As sources informed that recently Secretary DHE had issued notification to all government and private management run colleges to give present status of CCTV installation. As majority of colleges till date have failed to install the CCTV have cited several excuses ranging from availability of resources and technical snag develop in the process of installation. As it now the directives issued by State Governor and DHE to install CCTV has failed to leave any impact in examination centres falling under the ambit of Rani Durgawati University. Besides the mock of the situation is that though at Vikram Sarabhai examination centre at RDU has been installed with CCTV remains to get linked with the control room. Apparently the directives of Governor and DHE have thinly vaporised in air.
