RCMA MBA students1

Students of Master in Business Administration (MBA) of Regional College of Management Autonomous (RCMA) here on Monday announced that they will go on a hunger strike from tomorrow if their demand for original certificates is not granted immediately.

Students said they have been debarred from receiving original certificates from the Biju Patnaik University of Technology (BPUT), Rourkela since 2009.

Talking to OST, Raza Quadir, a MBA student of RCMA said, “The problem started when RCMA was granted autonomy under UGC guidelines in 2009 after which the college started granting admissions of students in the MBA course, was said to be affiliated to BPUT. But when we approached to both institutes (RCMA and BPUT) for issue of certificates for all batches, it said that no certificates will be issued as the matter of affiliation of BPUT is sub-judice in the Odisha High Court.”

Quadir said, “We have been consistently demanding our certificates. But citing its autonomous approval from University Grant Commission (UGC) and All India College of Technical Education (AICTE), the RCMA misled the agitating students about their future.”

According to reports presented by students, around 480 MBA students of the college are yet to get their final degree certificates since 2009.

“Now we are facing many problems in pursuing our career as we don’t have valid certificates about having completed the MBA degree in the college,” said another MBA second year student of RCMA Swayam Mohapatra.

The students had also met Minister of Employment and Technical Education and Training department Pratap Keshari Dev on the issue. According to the version of the students, Dev said the RCMA have violated rules of the Odisha Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Fixation of Fee) Act 2007.

“We have written to all governing bodies like UGC, BPUT, RCMA, State’s Governor SC Jamir, Ministry of Technical Education, Chief Minister’s grievance cell, but in vain,” alleged the BMA students of RCMA.

“If our certificates are not issued to us soon by the college, we will launch an indefinite hunger strike without violating law and damaging college property,” they warned.

On being quizzed about the issue, RCMA director Prof Prabir Pal said the college had moved the High Court in 2009 against the State Government regarding the admission issue. When the college authorities asked for handing over of certificates to the MBA students, the BPUT reiterated the old saying that the case is sub-judice in the court.

“If we had no affiliation, why has the OJEE been sending us students from 2009?” Pal asked, adding, “The allegation of running the MBA programme in the college without affiliation is not true.”

Pal also said that the college would sort out the problems within 7-10 days as they have taken the state government orders to the Vice-Chancellor of BPUT for early settlement of the issue. “If the BPUT issues certificates in favour of students who have passed out, they will withdraw the case against the Government.”

  1. RCM is a 32-year old establishment with thousands of students doing brilliantly well in their careers and profession and there is none in such that have ever I have heard been rejected for promotion. every college was at peace with Utkal University being the only university with decades of experience in running the education courses in the state, the egocentric move by our government to link to their own fame and creating a technical university to promote their corrupt moves and to control a quick-paced education environment in the state have led to all this.

    I am a student of the same batch of RCM who is sitting on strike and I don’t concur with the others as the management has been rigorously trying to solve the issue but what BPUT keeps asking is unconstitutional, does anyone know that HIGH COURT had already directed BPUT to issue certificates in their interim order. The people who are on strike are running an agenda of some other colleges and people who want the diamond in the throne of education of the state to be taken off, this happens every admission season, the people who are doing this will suffer at the end of the day because righteousness is godliness and god never forgive the ones who try to harm his loved people. RCMA stay strong as the mathematics of trust in you goes like this: 60 out of your 1000 students have corruptly trying to do negative publicity but the rest 940 are with all faith that you will do no harm to us and our careers..

    The best part the students that are not strike are those who have not passed the college and typically those who do not want sit for exams, or have not paid their college dues… the agenda is different my dear friends it is not the certificates. the certificate issue would anyway duly have been solved with the college and provisional certificates are anyway issued on successful passing of the college.

    I will leave a short story of the greatness of this establishment RCM “My friend lost her father during the 2nd semester of the college and do you know what the college did for that girl, they waived all dues of her tuition and other fees and gave her a stipend on 3500 per month to finish her education and support her family after that”, this is RCM is the diamond in the throne of education in Odisha, pointing a finger at them is like pointing a finger at the lord

    • Dear Mr Rajesh,
      Please don’t talk absurd if you don’t know the fact properly. First of all the strike is completely n only for the Certificate Issue. Not for the extension of exam date or course fees.

      It’s not the question about how the people are doing in the corporate…it’s the question about have they got their degree…n the problem have arrived from 2009 batches onwards… n I can give number of examples where people had suffered due to Degree Certificate.. they have been rejected by the PSU’s for not producing degree certificates…
      Being an MBA don’t you have a little sense that you can’t even apply for jobs in the Govt. Sector companies.. how can you continue our higher studies..???
      The successful corporate people according to you have not faced any problem as the problem have arrived from 2009.. They will definitely face the problem in future while switching any company or company audit. Because the validity of the provisional certificate is 2 years (max.)

      My dear Rajesh how much money you have taken from management to promote RCM… Shame on you… people out there are at hunger strike crying for the justice and you are making joke of the strike.. even the management clearly had known about purpose of the strike…n you are trying to divert us…But this won’t work… Don’t your parents have invested money for your study..?? Don’t you want you want degree…?? but we want…so if you are not supporting it’s ok…but please don’t spread false rumor in media or to people…

      I’m also a student of RCM MBA… who is at the strike… I don’t know you Rajesh…
      If you have any doubt come the strike place we will clarify you… with all legal documents as we have clarified the management, all the media…but I know you won’t come because you don’t exist…

      N.B.- This is a cheap work of RCM management in the name of student… But these cheap tricks won’t work… The strike will go on till the complete resolve of the issue…

    • Dear Rajesh if you are really a student of MBA then must have known that total strength of MBA is not 1000 it
      It is 300 students of 2012-2014 batch
      and 160 of 2013-2015 batch
      total 460 student which less then even half of the strength which proves that you are not a student of RCM as you don’t know the statistics as well. So please stop posting unrealistic comments just by taking a little amount of money. And if you are really interested to know the facts come to us we have all the evidence.

  2. there is no one named Rajesh in the who is sitting in the strike. You are someone from management with a fake name trying to mislead people and media. and also indirectly threatening students.
    If you really have guts then come in-front and give certificate to all the students of previous batches since 2009.
