    GU & CAG Report

    The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) report that the Gauhati University (GU) has offered 21 unapproved courses through its distance learning centre – Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL) – for seven years is extremely disturbing.

    The callousness of the GU has now endangered the career of around 74,000 students. The GU has collected Rs 39 crore as enrolment fees from the students by offering these unapproved courses during the year 2010-11 to 2016-17, the report mentioned. It was tabled during the ongoing Winter Session of the Assam Assembly.

    The CAG report mentioned that the varsity had submitted multiple false affidavits to the University Grants Commission (UGC), assuring that it will not start any new distance course without its approval.

     As per the CAG report, 73,912 students were enrolled in 19 courses out of 21 unapproved courses during the year 2010-11 to 2016-17. No admission was recorded in MSc-Mathematics and PGD-Insurance Management.

    The GU Vice-Chancellor Prof Pratap Jyoti Handique clarified that seven-member committee has been to inquire into all the allegations related to IDOL.  The committee comprising of seven professors has been directed to submit to its report in the next two months.

    On the other hand, a one-member independent committee led by Justice Aftab Hussain Saikia (retired) of the Gauhati High Court has also been formed to inquire into the matter and will submit its report in six months.

    The Assam government must initiate an enquiry into the matter as the future life of students is in question.  The students must do thorough research about the institute/centre before applying for a distance learning course.
