The Members of Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) met Shivaji University vice-chancellor Devanand Shinde to discuss the alleged irregularities in the engineering exam and the measures that need to be taken. According to the members of ABVP, Shinde personally invited them to discuss the issues and promised to take action.
Amit Vaidya Said, "Last month, we conducted a joint discussion with the university's exam department on the engineering exam issue. We submitted a summary of the discussion to the vice-chancellor, following which he invited us to talk about it in detail.
"We came to know that the university conducted a principals' meeting after the said discussion last month to implement the suggestions and discuss more about it", he said. "It is unfortunate when a student applies for re-evaluation and it is generally decided by the redressal committee whether the paper is eligible for re-evaluation. The students' body has appreciated Shinde's gesture to hold discussions on the issues, which are holding back the exam department as well as causing an unnecessary trouble for the students and their parents.

Vaidya said it is unfortunate when a student applies for re-evaluation and it is generally decided by the redressal committee whether the paper is eligible for re-evaluation.
"The students are paying for re-evaluation and not for the opinion of the redressal committee. The university needs to change its ordinance about the committee at the earliest. In fact, we have spoken to Shinde about how the rules about the redressal committee can be amended by the vice-chancellor himself. He has promised to look into the matter," he added.
