Officials give reassurances of swift results

The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), an All India Student Organization, has requested students not to take any wrong and drastic steps due to the recent stress they have faced due to delayed results and the complications that come with the same.

ABVP's delegation yesterday approached the Acting Vice Chancellor of Mumbai University of Mumbai, Dr. Devanand Shinde to draw a path through all these matters.

“The students of the University of Mumbai have been reacting impulsively to  recent events, with some even having tried to commit suicide because of the mess created by the administration,” said Mumbai Metropolitan Region Minister Ravi Jaiswal. “We appeal to the students not to take such steps and would like that harming themselves shall not help anything. We (ABVP) are there to help any student in need,” said Jaiswal before adding that students need to fight for their rights against the varsity.

“In today’s meeting with the Acting Vice Chancellor, we were assured that close to 50,000 answer sheets still to be revaluated shall be out of the way as soon as possible and that 12,000 results have been declared after the process so far,” said Jaiswal. “There are also around 4,500 students who have not received their results (pending) and those, too shall be declared today,” he added.

In the aftermath of many law students of Mumbai University receiving marks as low as zero on Tuesday, many students suffered from mental stress.

The ABVP has also requested the University to look into the cost of ATKT re-examination fees and lower the same as many students have to go throught those examinations after poor correction standards. The varsity has given assurance to look into the matter as well.

Decisions will be taken at the Council's Academic Council meeting. “The Acting Vice Chancellor, Shinde told us that in the next few days, the University administration will appoint responsible officials to solve the student’s questions on the Thane and Ratnagiri Sub Centers. For the academic year, even after eliminating the gap in the online assessment, a lossless system will be implemented,” said Jaiswal.
