The Supreme Court today recommended the 3rd proposal out of 4 proposals submitted by the University Grants Commission (UGC) to facilitate the accommodation of an additional 4,928 students to State universities.

The Bench comprised Chief Justice Shirani A. Bandaranayake, Justices N.G. Amaratunga and K. Sripavan.

Chief Justice Shirani A. Bandaranayake on August 30 advised UGC to increase the intake of students to the university increase the infrastructure to accommodate them. She recalled a similar situation that arose in 1991 and pointed out that it was resolved by the intake of more students.

The CJ advised the UGC to take steps to release the new district and island rankings separately taking into consideration the new syllabus and old syllabus as two different entities.

She told the UGC to direct the Examinations Chief to release the rankings on or before September 10.

The Attorney General told Court he would instruct the Examinations Chief to do so without any unnecessary delay. (SSS)

There r 14 universities and only 290 plus students per university. This is a manageable number.

Have you been inside a university recently? At Peradeniya, because of the lack of canteen space students eat lunch in all odd places. This lot will enter and then ask the university to provide more facilities. The government will say no money. Then more strikes . . . .

Brilliant!! After all the Z-score calamity is a blessing in disguise to students. More students are now taken in !!

Now the government will take credit for this. At least something good has happened to children.

I remember a similar instance during the "Adyapana Siyawasa" in 1970 where a lot of students were later admitted to the universities as the then government accepted that the "Siyawasa Programme" caused those students injustice and on the verge of loosing the opportunity to enter the University.

Increasing the number of students is the best remedy for this kind of sensitive issues with student admission to government universities. Justice prevailed.

Naturally the Government has to increase the budgetary allocation to education as demanded by lecturers.

They got the answer but is there a solution. There are thousands of Graduates without jobs first find them employment. How about the facilities to the extra students. Take a pledge from all new under graduates, No Strikes and they will complete their course on time.

Dear Dinesh.. Cost in "QUALITY EDUCATION" is an investment and not mere quantity that we trying to accomodate for the sake of it. Let us be honest, the overall quality of graduates produce by our govt., universities is far below the standards. No wonder parents look for overseas qualification for their kids. Even companies look for overseas qualified graduates.. It's a complex issue need to take appropriate action, but not just by increasing no.s to please a few.
