Bangalore University will be split into four varsities

Education NewsAs per the decision, taken at a meeting with the law and finance departments, the university could be split before the beginning of the next academic year. It will be divided into Bangalore North University, Bangalore South University, Bangalore Central University and the present university at Jnanabharathi.

According to the sub-committee, the university at Jnanabharathi will become a unitary university like Jawaharlal Nehru University. The other three varsities – North, South and Central – will be affiliating universities. Providing smooth academic services and monitoring the 600 affiliated colleges has become burdensome, said a source who attended the meeting. The three affiliating universities will have 200 colleges each.

Each affiliating university will be given 100 acres to establish a campus; the remaining land will used by the unitary university, sources said. BU’s Jnanabharathi campus is spread across over 1,000 acres. Deshpande told: “This will be presented before the cabinet for approval. It will enhance the quality of education and provide for better administration.”

Back ground:
In 2013, then Governor HR Bhardwaj rejected a bill drafted by the BJP government to bifurcate BU. But the present Congress government formed a sub-committee and asked KR Venugopal, principal of the Visvesvaraya College of Engineering, to prepare a report on this issue.
