GU council: No hike fee this year

Good morning friends.  No fees hike this year.  That would be a great news to everyone specially to all parents.   They will not have to think of what other source of income will they have just to adopt to the fees of the university will give.  We are all aware that parents were doing all they can just to have their kids to have an education.   Education is the wealth of everyone.

The executive council of Gujarat University has decided to retain the old fee structure of the academic year 2008-2009. The decision was taken at a council’s meet on Sunday. Earlier, vice chancellor Parimal Trivedi had taken a decision of raising the fees of BCom, BBA and BCA courses at self finance colleges.

Students who paid excess term fees would be adjusted in second term,  the council said. The council also discussed a proposal of increasing examination fee, verification fee, rechecking and re-assessment fee. However, executive council member Manish Doshi opposed the proposal.

“Self financed institutions are reaping good profit. There is no need to introduce hike in fee structure. Instead of increasing fee, the varsity should think of reducing its expenses,” said Doshi. – AhmedabadMirror

Health guidelines for schools

Good morning friends.  Summer is almost done.  I’m sure everybody was did enjoyed their summer vacation especially all students.  They should now be preparing for the coming school opening.  It’s good to know that there will be health guidelines for every school.  We should always think about the health of our children as they are still young and can easily acquire disease if they were not given a proper health care.

Both aided and unaided schools in the city would soon be given fresh guidelines by the Delhi government on medical preparedness.

The decision was taken after the government-appointed committee submitted its report to the Directorate of Education (DoE) on Wednesday. The report cited lapses on the part of Modern School, Vasant Vihar, in handling the case of Class XII student Aakriti Bhatia who died on her way to hospital following an asthma attack on the school premises on April 21.

“We are preparing the guidelines in consultation with the health department and they will be issued in two-three days,” said education minister Arvinder Singh Lovely.

While the Delhi School Education Act, 1973 under rule 38 mentions the need of a part-time or full-time medical officer, Lovely said: “The new guidelines would be more comprehensive and would be mandatory for schools.”

Meanwhile, a day after the DoE’s report was submitted, the Delhi Commission for Protection of Child’s Right (DCPCR) has decided to move Delhi High Court for registration of a criminal case against the school, accusing it of negligence in the matter.

The DoE report, though holding principal Goldy Malhotra responsible, didn’t direct any action against her. Said sources in DoE, “Malhotra came to know of the incident very late. Also we have to take into account how much of `puffs’ she (Aakriti) took, how ill was she the day before, what effect the ongoing construction had on her, among others, before coming to any conclusion.”

Even sources at DCPCR said although being the principal Malhotra should be held responsible for what happened in her school, the principal was informed late about the development. –The Times of India

State to get over 50 CBSE schools

Good morning friends.  School authorities say CBSE is more flexible than state board, allowing schools to teach books other than those prescribed by them, leading to overall knowledge enhancement of the child. This  thought will benefit more students.  
To prepare for an increasingly competitive world, parents in Gujarat are increasingly opting for Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) schools. So much so that students will be spoilt for choice. As many as CBSE schools have been granted permission in different cities across the state. About 35 of these would begin from this academic year.
Sources said over 100 schools had applied for affiliation to the central board and that more schools are expected to offer the syllabus from academic years 2010 and 2011. Those managing schools say parents are demanding CBSE as they feel the textbooks are of better quality and prepares their children for competitive exams.
Interestingly, Surat has got permission to start 13 CBSE schools —the highest in the state — followed by Vadodara (9), Valsad (6), Bharuch (7), Ahmedabad (4), Navsari (3), Kutch (2), Junagadh (2), Anand (2) and one each in Panchmahals, Kheda and Bharuch. Gandhinagar will also set up three CBSE schools from the coming academic year.
“We recently removed restrictions on providing NOCs to get affiliated to CBSE schools as more central schools would create healthy competition among schools in the state, ultimately helping students,” says Hasmukh Adhia, principal secretary education, Gujarat.
Schools in Ahmedabad that have got CBSE nod include Amrita Vidyalayam and Nirman High School, Vastrapur. Satvavikas School on SG Highway and Udgam School for Children, that have traditionally been offering the state board syllabus, will offer students the option of shifting to CBSE.
“Not just migrants, even Gujarati parents want to put their children in CBSE schools as they feel the syllabus is of higher quality and also prepares students for competitive exams,” says Raja Pathak of Satvavikas School.
“CBSE syllabus gives students an edge to compete in national competitive exams. We did extensive surveys of different boards before deciding on central board for our students,” says Gautam Choksi, trustee of Udgam School that will offer CBSE from class VIII.

Colleges students get ready to celebrate Environment Day

On Saturday, students of LD Arts College along with lecturers and the principal will get off their cars and bikes and ride a bicycle instead.


It is the season of culfests in colleges, but ever since Gujarat University (GU) banned celebration of days where students would go wild celebrating Rose Day’, Chocolate Day’ and Saree Day’, colleges are brimming with celebrations of socially relevant issues. So, Saturday will be celebrated as Environment Day’.

“I will come on cycle that day. This is the perfect way to sensitise students towards growing problems of air pollution and depleting energy reserves,” said Mahipatsinh Chavda, principal of LD Arts College, who feels that the ban on frivolous days has come as a blessing in disguise as students are suddenly organising events that promote social awareness.


One of the students expresses his plan this way. I am going to tell my father to use solvent recovery systems with the use of solvent recyclers and cleaning systems in his company. This is the way I am going to give my contribution on environment day.


The season may have begun on a rough note with action against HLBBA for violating the ban by hosting a fashion show. However, most colleges are adhering to celebration of days that give them the opportunity to celebrate but not with exchange of roses and chocolates. Rather, they will dwell on larger and more important issues like terrorism, environment, peace and even general sensitivity towards social issues.

LD College will also be celebrating Role Model Day’, where students will dress up like their role model. A special certificate will also be given to the best performers.

Anti-terrorism Day’ was celebrated at KS School of Business Management on Monday. As part of the celebrations, students took a pledge to prevent spread of terrorism in the country. Students of LJ Arts and Commerce College too will celebrate this day, wherein they will exchange their views over terrorism.

At Shahjanand College, students will celebrate Environment Day’, National Unity Day’ and Save the Girl Child Awareness Day’.

“The highlight of the event would be the Home Food Day’ where students will bring home-cooked food and share it with others,” a student said.

“Our students will visit orphanages and sing for the elderly as part of the Winter Day’ celebrations. I think it is a very touching idea, better than just dressing up and not doing anything thoughtful for society,” said Jean D’Souza of HA College of Arts and Commerce.

“Initially, we thought that culfests would not be the same without the usual celebrations, but we find the new celebrations mentally very stimulating,” said Jaimin Shah, a second-year student.

Love in Tokyo

Good morning friends.  I may say that students who experience was really can called an experience of a lifetime.  Many were selected but only few were chosen.  A good study of one student may lead them to this kind of exchange program.  I want to say to those students that they should give their full best to reach this goal.  After I read an article about this in reference to The Times of India, let me share it with you because students might get inspired with this.

An experience of a lifetime. That is how Vaibhav Adhia, a student of Prakash  High School,  sums up his 10-day long trip to Japan under a student exchange programme.


Organised by Japan International Co-operation Centre, the programme gave 72 students from across the country, an opportunity to explore Japanese culture. Vaibhav was the only student from the city to have been selected for Japan East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths (JENESYS) programme.

Talking to TOI, Vaibhav says, “Initially, I was a little apprehensive. But once the ice was broken, we all became friends not only among ourselves, but also with people in Japan.”

In Tokyo, they toured around the Panasonic Centre and Toyota showroom. But it was the disaster prevention centre that shook him, literally. “We were given a live demo of an earthquake measuring 7 on Richter scale. As everything around us shook, we were asked to seek shelter under a table.”

Recalling his journey in a bullet train, the class XI student says, “We covered a distance of 500 km in two hours. We saw Mount Fuji on our way.” Interaction with staff and students at Otemae Senior High School and Joyo Senior High School was enriching. “Studying was fun as their teaching methods are quite advanced. They have projectors in all their classes,” he says.

Communication, he says, was a bit of a problem. “Most of them speak only Japanese. I hardly found people talking in English.”

He concludes, “The trip was a great learning experience and the qualities that I would like to imbibe from them is hard work and patriotism. I was also very impressed with their rule of compulsory education for children.”

Indian education cheap but professional, say foreign students – 1

Good morning friends. Education is very important to a person.  It is our wealth.  That’s why parents should prepare for the education of their children.  No amount of many can buy if our children finished their education.  We have to plan for the future of our children.

Many Indian students want to study abroad, paying through their nose in the process. At the same time, students from across the world are filling university seats here for ‘cheap, professional and internationally ranked’ Indian education.

On an average, about 3,500 students visit India on educational programmes from over 70 countries every year, courtesy the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), one of its officials told IANS.

The ICCR awards 2,000 scholarships to these students every year.

‘People from my country come to India because the cost of education here is very low. Besides, India offers really high quality and good education in a very short duration – the courses here do not take that much time to complete and we can go back home and easily get a job,’ Jessica Dayal, a special education volunteer from Tanzania, told IANS.

Dayal is in Delhi for a year to learn how to help out children with disabilities.

Sam Kast, anothr Tanzanian, is studying pharmacy at the Jamia Hamdard University: ‘India is constantly developing in terms of technology and that is also one reason we want to come here,’ he said.

‘Pursuing pharmacy back home for me would have taken around eight years and if I’d failed, it might have got stretched to even 12 years. However, in India, it’s only for four years and I can do a specialization in the time I’d have taken just to graduate in Tanzania.’

Gujarat State to get 14 new engg colleges from next year

Following news is something going to change Gujarat state’s future. Gujarat Students will have 4200 more engineering seats from next year. Meaning Gujarat will have 4200 more engineering brain. If we can visualize the long term benefits of this decision is really overwhelming. So many Students from Guajart are going out of Guajrat to study in Engineering as our seat quota was not enough.


Now 14 new colleges with altogether going to provide 4200 engineering sits ,,,, I appreciate GSTEB for taking such a nice decision which is going to help next generation of Guajrat. Read the following new on times of india website.



Gujarat State Technical Education Board (GSTEB) has decided to introduce 14 engineering colleges in various districts of the state. The reason behind this is to keep a particular trend going on: The number of students enrolling in class XII science stream has been steadily increasing for the last two years. The state technical education board has realised that it will have to give students enough reasons to continue the trend.


The technical education board has already identified 14 districts where engineering colleges will be started. These districts are those which do not have a government engineering college yet.


With the introduction of these 14 colleges, 4,200 engineering seats will increase in the state since every college has been approved with 300 seats. To make these colleges different from others, subjects related to the area where the college is located will be taught as part of curriculum, besides regular subjects.


The technical education board aims to commence these engineering colleges from the next academic year, for which Rs 1 crore has already been sanctioned. Sites for these colleges have also been identified in Porbander, Palanpur and Narmada.


GSTEB director Manish Baradwaj said, “These colleges will start from the next academic year. Recruiting the staff will not be a problem since we plan to hire teachers on a contract basis.”


In the academic year, started June 2008, there were 1,225 more seats offered in government engineering colleges and about 1,000 seats were increased in self-financed institutes. In the next academic year, increase in the number of SFI seats is expected to be about the same number.
