Mangaluru: The Mangalore University, which was chastised for failing to include the regional history of Kodagu and the coastal districts of Udupi and Dakshina Kannada in its NEP undergraduate history syllabus, will honor it, according to Kishore CK, mangaluru MLA, who said at the continuing assembly session on Thursday that MU failed to include the history of this region in the curriculum, though it has jurisdiction over Udupi, When NEP was introduced to undergraduate courses, there was a way to learn about local history.MU Board of Studies' negligence has denied students the opportunity to participate, according to Khader.Higher education minister Dr C N Ashwath Narayan said it would be resolved out.Kishore also clarified that MU is permitted to change only 20% of the syllabus as per the state government's guidelines.If the syllabus changes by more than 20%, we'll have to revise it.

After consultation with the history Board of Studies (BoS) director and members, it will be done.The non-inclusion of regional history was not made deliberately, but due to limitations, Kishore said.B.Udaya, the chairman of BoS (history), said it was a necessitating debate elicited by a handful of history lecturers.There is a way to include regional history, but none of the history lecturers came forward to emphasize it.

The government has to approve a complete reform if it is necessary.The non-inclusion of regional history will be discussed at the forthcoming academic council meeting, which is set for next Tuesday, according to Khader.In this regard, the Vice-Chancellor of Mangalore University, Ashwath Narayan, has been advised.
