The district administration has made a decision regarding the preparations for election-related work at the Arts College. Instead of relying on a single contractor for the task, they have chosen to divide the responsibility among five different contractors. This marks a departure from the initial plan, which involved appointing just one contractor for the entire job. Under this new arrangement, each of the five contractors will be responsible for preparing a portion of the 34 rooms at the Arts College, which are essential for election-related activities. To ensure a seamless execution of this decision, all five contractors have already conducted on-site assessments by visiting the Arts College.
The decision to engage multiple contractors for this task aims to improve efficiency and expedite the necessary preparations. District Collector Arvind Kumar Poswal shared this information, emphasizing the district administration's commitment to ensuring the successful execution of election-related work at the college.
The contractors have expressed their readiness to prepare the Arts College for election-related work, even if they receive access to it on November 9, 2023. In contrast, Vice-Chancellor Prof. Sunita Mishra has taken the initiative to inspect the Arts College alongside an inspection team, scheduled for November 6, 2023. Chancellor Professor Mishra has previously stated that the university has not received 'NAAC Grading' for the past four years. This grading is crucial for the affiliated colleges and approximately 1.90 lakh students who are enrolled in them. The absence of this grading has resulted in students not receiving their marksheets for the past two years, which is having a negative impact on the university's reputation. To address this issue, the Chancellor has been making preparations for a 'NAAC Inspection' over the past month.
University spokesperson Dr. Kunjan Acharya clarified that the inspection team will visit the Arts College on November 6. Once the inspection is completed, the district administration will formally hand over the Arts College for election-related tasks. This proactive approach is aimed at preventing any delays that might affect the university's NAAC cadets or the district election office in Udaipur due to the acquisition of the Arts College for election purposes.
The university administration is fully engaged in NAAC preparations, dedicating their efforts every day from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Furthermore, an inspection team is scheduled to visit the university from November 6 to 8, ensuring a thorough assessment of the situation and readiness for the upcoming election-related work.
