Calicut University Ponnani Information Centre to resume functioning on November 18

The Calicut University Information Centre at Ponnani, which was closed nearly 8 months ago during the regime of the former Vice Chancellor Dr. M. Abdul Salam is to resume its functioning on November 18. The demand of the students to reopen the centre was not heeded by the University authorities then.

The order to reopen the centre has now been  issued by  Vice Chancellor Dr. Khader Mangat one month ago following wide spread  protests from the student organisations and the representatives of the people including P. Sreeramakrishnan MLA. The reopening was again  kept pending on the eve of the local body elections and the code of conduct prevailed then. Now the University has posted  T. Mohanan, Senior Section Officer presently with the Directorate of Admissions as the Information Officer of the Ponnani Centre. He will assume charge on November 18.

The Information Centre at Ponnani was established by the University in 2009 to  cater to the educational requirements of a large number of students and the local populace in the coastal town of Ponnani and nearby areas and also from the bordering Taluks of Thrissur and Palakkad districts, as part of its initiatives to take the services to the students and general public in the backward and rural areas.

The Centre, over the short period of its establishment in 2009, had proved itself to be a dynamic and notable institution, disseminating all information on University courses and examinations and providing guidance and facilities for all University-related requirements of the students.The Centre also used to provide useful information on the availability of the jobs in the Government and private sectors from the data it collected  from various sources.

 The abrupt closure of the centre had put the students into a lot of difficulties, as they had to come all the way to the Calicut university campus from remote places for various University related requirements, which they could easily get done in the centre. With the introduction of online registration of applications for examinations and e-payment system, the students, especially of the private and distance education, from the rural areas find it extremely difficult to make proper registration and payment for the varsity examinations, entailing the rejection of their applications in many cases affecting their studies and future. The Information centres can help them to a great extent in redressing their problems.

Mohanan said that the Information Centre at Ponnani would continue to render all services to the students including facilities for online registration for exams and e-payment. A career and employment guidance seminar for guiding the students on higher education and job opportunities will also be conducted under the auspices of the centre soon, he said.
