No more double MA from Patna University

July 13, 2014

Patna: Patna University (PU) will soon start an English medium primary school for the wards of its staff and poor children of the adjoining localities.

A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the PU academic council under the chairmanship of vice-chancellor Y C Simhadri on Wednesday. The wives of PU VC, pro-VC and other officials residing on the campus have volunteered their services as teachers. Some other faculty members and students may also render their services.

In another major decision, the academic council banned MA in two subjects. After passing MA examination in one subject, a student can only enrol for the PhD and cannot join PG course in another subject. Relaxation to this new provision was given only for the students of LLB and BEd courses. However, in no case, a student can pursue his study in the university for a period of more than 10 years, the academic council decided.
