Jamshedpur, September 15: A delegation of Jamshedpur Cooperative law college students met the Governor-cum-chancellor of the state on Friday to demand that Kolhan’s only government law college, Jamshedpur Co-operative Law College, be declared an independent unit.
During the discussion in this regard with the Governor, the students said that it is operated under Kolhan University. Continuous efforts are being made to declare this college an independent unit.
It has been told in the memorandum that Jamshedpur Co-operative Law College is not being declared an independent entity for the last 20 years. The college is struggling with many problems. Since the college is not an independent entity, no funds are allocated nor any appointment are being made. Due to non-starting of LLM and PhD courses in the college, students have to go to outside colleges.
Amar Tiwari has told that an application was also given to the Governor last year, after which a committee was formed by the government and sent to inspect the college. Even after that, due to the apathy of the department, no initiative has been taken on this yet. This matter has also been raised in the Assembly. Through a memorandum, Amar Tiwari has demanded to declare the college as an independent unit, start LLM, PhD courses and get approval from the Vice Chancellor for the construction of the proposed building by the college. Also, the Governor has been requested to constitute a committee, so that the committee can give proper guidelines and solve all the problems under its supervision.
