Pune, 10th March 2023: The senate of Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) is set to convene its first meeting after the recent election of its members, during which a budget proposal for the upcoming academic year will be presented along with resolutions related to university examinations and academic schedules.

Other proposals will address initiatives such as a zero waste program, scholarships for research students, and a mini Olympics competition to be held in the new sports complex. The senate members will also discuss providing pearl-colored sarees for women members and faculty in graduation ceremonies, and separate badges to identify senate members.

The recent senate election marked the first time the process took on a political form, with most of the Vidyapeeth Vikas Mancha’s candidates affiliated with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). As last year’s budget had a Rs 70 crore deficit, it remains to be seen whether this year’s budget will be able to reduce that deficit.

Among the resolutions to be presented during the meeting, senate member Dadabhau Sinalkar has proposed to pay Rs 60 per hour to students enrolled in the ‘earn and learn’ scheme in affiliated colleges, and to organize a mini Olympics competition. Rajesh Manerikar’s resolution calls for a zero-waste program to begin in the university starting April 1, utilizing the central government’s zero-waste regulations. Aparna Lalingkar proposed the idea of pearl-colored sarees to be included in graduation ceremonies for female members of the senate and faculty, and also suggested providing separate badges for senate members to distinguish them from others.

Other resolutions include extending scholarship benefits to Ph.D. students in affiliated colleges, early issuance of degree certificates and e-transcripts, and timely announcement of exam results. Additionally, there is concern over the confusion caused by separate holiday circulars for professors and non-teaching staff, and a demand for the installation of a memorial sculpture for the first Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Mukund Jayakar, during the university’s upcoming diamond jubilee year. Other proposals include the establishment of the Krantiveer Birsa Munda Adhyasan and the implementation of the Godavari conservation project through the National Service Scheme and Student Welfare Board, as well as the establishment of a coordination committee of industrial associations and universities to provide employment opportunities to students.

The meeting will be chaired by in-charge Vice Chancellor Dr. Karbhari Kale, as the position of vice chancellor remains vacant since last year.
