Mangaluru, Sep 16: The office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax (Administration) in Mangaluru will not be shifted to Goa, according to Mangaluru South MLA Vedavyas Kamath.

The statement comes following widespread opposition to the reported move of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) to abolish the office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax in Mangaluru and merge it with the office of Principal Commissioner of Income Tax, Panaji.

Speaking to media persons in the city today, the MLA claimed that there was no such proposal by the CBDT.

"The I-T office in Mangaluru has a principal commissioner, and so does the I-T office in Goa. There is a proposal to combine both the designations and appoint one principal commissioner. Under the circumstances, only the position of principal commissioner of Mangaluru may get shifted to Goa. But the news that the entire office in Mangaluru is getting merged with the office in Goa is far from the truth," he said.

Mangaluru, which is the administrative headquarters of the Dakshina Kannada district, is a commercial, industrial, educational, healthcare and start-up hub.

Bengaluru, Oct 23: Putting an end to uncertainty over the future of youths, the Karnataka government has decided to reopen colleges and diploma classes across the state from November 17.

Talking to media after a meeting on Friday, Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Dr Ashwath Narayan, who was also Minister for Higher Education, was however quick enough to add that the reopening comes with certain conditions including that the students can opt for attending college or online class and parents should give their consent to send their wards to the institution.

He said that since the last six months, educational institutions were closed in the state fearing spread of Covid-19 pandemic and now reopen of only College and Diploma were permitted and decisions about reopen of Primary and High Schools are yet to be taken.

Mr Narayan said that classes will be held in batches depending upon the number of students opting for attending Online class and Colleges. "Students are free to opt, there is no compulsion to attend Colleges and attendance is not compulsory. However, parents should give their consent in writing to send their wards".

He said that the Colleges and Diploma courses will be held as per guidelines provided by the University Grants Commission (UGC), there is no question of going against because students welfare is very important and the State government has the responsibility of protecting the health of the students. "As I have already said earlier, classes will be held in batches in colleges depending upon the number of students opting and the batches will be held on shift basis. Each district will form a Task Force to oversee smooth running of classes. Learning portal will be launched for those who opt for attending Online classes," he added.

Replying to a question, the Minister clarified that the subject about reducing the quantum of syllabus for Schools, Colleges or Diploma courses did not come up for discussion".
