Submitted by alvin on Thu, 2016-04-28 20:03 Bengaluru: The governor of Karnataka, Vajubhai Vala, has shot off notices to a few universities expressing his displeasure at not being informed of the agenda to be discussed in the executive council meeting beforehand. In the notice dispatched, the governor has stated that as per the statutory provisions of the university, a copy of agenda must be sent to the office of the chancellor and the members of the committee to ensure their time is utilised for discussing items on the agenda and not wasted on irrelevant subjects. The decisions taken by the executive council or the board of the university should be kept confidential until the minutes have been approved and circulated. Apart from this, the approved minutes of the meeting must be sent to the office of the chancellor and also uploaded on the website of the university. They should also mention whether minutes are accepted, rejected or deferred with reasons.
