Call from Parliament: Enhance Academic Calendar Implementation at TU

The Parliament Committee Urges Tribhuvan University to Enhance Academic Calendar Implementation

Kathmandu. The parliamentary committee responsible for Education, Health, and Information Technology has called on Tribhuvan University (TU), the country’s oldest educational institution, to effectively implement its annual academic calendar.

During a recent committee meeting, TU’s Vice Chancellor, Prof Dr. Dharmakant Baskota, presented the university’s status. Lawmakers highlighted concerns about students seeking education and employment abroad due to TU’s lack of systematic operations, despite being the largest institution in terms of infrastructure. The committee’s president, Dr. Kaluram Rai, emphasized the need to prevent students from going abroad for tertiary education.

Suggestions from lawmakers included directly appointing high-achieving graduates for professor positions, involving strong political commitment to resolve frequent university closures, attracting students through appealing programs, and conducting research on student aspirations and academic satisfaction. Additionally, the University Grants Commission (UGC) Chair, Prof Dr. Devraj Adhikari, stressed the implementation of a National Academic Calendar.

TU Vice Chancellor Dr. Baskota also informed the committee about ongoing challenges due to a 41-day lockout by the TU Kirtipur-affected Concerned Society. He called for better management of existing universities rather than establishing new ones.

Currently, Nepal has 11 operational universities, with two more set to begin following legislative approvals. Additionally, six health science academies function as deemed universities.”
