The students of Dayananda Sagar Institute, Bangalore are expected to maintain a minimum attendance of 85%, failing which the students might be denied their hall tickets. However, there seems to be a comfortable yet expensive way around this. A professor by name Sunil Kumar, HOD of the commerce department, has been accused of demanding a bribe of 2 lakhs from students whose attendance was lesser than 85% and promising them to clear their hall tickets as soon as they pay him two lakhs.
Hundreds of students grew furious over this after learning about this and staged a protest against the professor yesterday. They even questioned management. However, the protest ended after police came to college and talked to the management, students of the college confirmed to The Logical Indian. News 9 reported that the professor has been suspended. The administration refused to respond to any questions from the media. The students also claim to have caught the professor red-handed, while taking bribe from a student.
The Logical Indian Take
It’s disheartening how students are indirectly being taught to bribe their way out of colleges and how teachers and professors are failing to establish themselves as role models to their students. Incidents like these demolish all trust between the student and the teaching faculty. Trust and respect between teachers and students play a pivotal role in learning. Colleges nowadays have become mere degree-issuing institutions, rather than spaces for learning.
