Nagpur University Rescues 1,500 Students Who Almost Missed Exam

Nagpur University rescued over 1,500 students on November 5, 2016, a day before their scheduled examination in various undergraduate streams. Some of the colleges affiliated to Nagpur University did not submit vital documents to the varsity. As soon as the issue came to the notice of Pramod Yeole, Pro-Vice Chancellor of NU, he directed the Controller of Examinations to allow students to appear for the exams.

Students of these colleges protested against the management as they did not receive hall tickets. However, at the eleventh-hour, administration of Nagpur University swung into action and the staff worked overtime to ensure that the students appear for the exam on November 8, 2016.

Most of the colleges affiliated to NU had not submitted affiliation documents. The academic year commenced in the month of July, and the colleges did not take any step regarding submission of crucial documents to the varsity. The colleges were supposed to submit all the documents by the first week of September. However, the colleges woke up from the slumber only after protests by students.

Pramod Yeole explained that the university has the authority to reject the proposals of colleges as they violated the deadline. Since it was a question of over 1,500 students, the varsity decided to consider their issues at the eleventh-hour. The staff worked overtime till late evening and completed the formalities and issued hall tickets to students. He mentioned that all the colleges which were responsible for this delay would be punished.

Finally, the college's managed to give hall tickets to the students just an hour before the examination. As a result, the examination was delayed by 30 minutes to an hour at various centres.

The varsity had faced a similar kind of issue last year too. This year, around 13 colleges did not submit affiliation documents on time.

Cool, interesting and funny. An ardent lover of animals and gets a kick out of Chetan Bhagat and Amish Tripathi novels. My favourite novel is 'The God of Small Things' written by Arundathi Roy.
