Autonomous Cells



Professional institutes across the globe face the challenge of ensuring attendance and participation of students in regular classes to improve their academic standards. Our experience has taught us that the most important assurance regarding performance of students comes from his/her regular attendance in the classes. Our best performing students, toppers and distinction holders have attendance constantly above 95%. To ensure the same and also the eligibility for appearing in examinations are not left to chance. The attendance cell monitors attendance of all students, classes and clinics/practicals. It mainly aims to identify early signs of absenteeism and poor performance. To combat this, every constituent college of the University has an Attendance cell with the central one located at Vice Dean’s office, Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College.

Objectives and tasks
  • To monitor student’s attendance in theory, practicals and clinics.
  • To monitor of proper conduction classes as per university norms.
  • To address the students grievances regarding attendance.
  • To identify and counsel students with less attendance and chronically absent.
  • To maintain communication with parents/guardians To maintain and ensure transparency of records
Operational Guidelines

The university strictly adheres to the attendance criteria (subjectwise) for eligibility in University examinations which are as follows :

  • Theory : Greater than equal to 75%
  • Practial / Clinics : Greater than equal to 80%

(Remaining 20% include all absence like sickness, other leaves, etc.) The student failing to attain the required progressive attendance in a particular subject is not eligible to appear in University Examinations in that subject.

Constitution of Attendance Cell

Every constituent faculty of University i.e Medical, Dental, Ayurveda and Nursing has an Attendance cell units.
