BERHAMPUR: With admission season round the corner, Berhampur University (BU) authorities have sounded alert to students and their parents to verify the genuineness of institutes before taking admission. The alert came against the backdrop of several unscrupulous institutes thriving in southern Odisha.

"We have advised students and their parents to verify the status of government recognition and university affiliation of colleges or institutes and the courses offered by them before taking admission," said vice- chancellor of the university J K Mohapatra.

"The university will not be held responsibility for conduct of examinations during 2013-14 session for courses in the institutes which don't fulfill the statutory requirement of government recognition and university affiliation," said registrar B P Rath in a recent notification.

The university authorities said they issued such caution notice to parents and students as such institutes have been admitting students and pushing them into an uncertain future.

"We have also advised such institutes not to admit students for 2013-14 session," Rath said.

The university had identified as many as 18 different professional institutes and denied 500 of their students from taking final examinations in BBA, BCA and bachelor of electronic science (BES) courses last year.

The university, however, allowed them to appear for the examinations following a direction of theOrissa High Court. These colleges were neither recognized by the state government nor affiliated to the university, sources said.
