Punjabi College bringing down the curtains on regional centre in Mohali


Having catered to native college students and library lovers for twenty years, Punjabi College’s (Patiala) Regional Centre for IT and Administration in Part 7 right here is going through closure because of the varsity’s monetary crunch.

The centre had been providing a number of programs, together with MBA, MBA (Government), MTech (CSE), MCA, MCA (lateral entry), MCom, BCA+MCA, BBA, BCom, BSc (Hons) laptop science, BSc (Hons) synthetic intelligence & information science, and Diploma in Computing.

However whereas the inaugural session in September 2000 had over 600 college students, at present solely 60 college students are enrolled on the centre, regardless of the varsity pumping in 3.2 crore yearly. Authorities attribute this to college students preferring different authorities institutes throughout the tricity.

College students to be shifted to different govt schools

With the Patiala varsity already operating the Authorities School in Part 6 and Khalsa School in Part 3, college students have been requested to shift there. In the meantime, 12 of the 18 college members have already been transferred.

Vice-chancellor Arvind mentioned, “Almost 3.2 crore are spent on the centre yearly. It isn’t financially viable to run it with simply 60 college students. Their research is not going to be affected, as they are going to be shifted inside Mohali solely.”

On Thursday, when a senior professor of the college got here to the campus to take college students’ consent, they raised slogans towards the authorities.

A scholar, Jaskaran Singh Bhullar, mentioned the school was shifted two months again and since then, college students had been requesting authorities to not shut the centre. “Will probably be tough for us to regulate to the brand new atmosphere in one other school,” mentioned Manjit Singh, one other scholar.
