Mumbai, July 6: Taking the serious note on the delays in the declaration of the results by the University of Mumbai, the Governor of Maharashtra CH Vidyasagar Rao asked the university administration to declare results all courses by 31st July 2017.
According to the Section 89 of Maharashtra Public Universities Act, the Universities should declare the results for all courses within 30 days of the exam and should not take time more than 45 days.
The Governor asked Vice-Chancellor of the University Dr Sanjay Deshmukh to declare all courses’ result by 31st July 2017 and to submit a detailed report in accordance with the provisions of Section 89 of Maharashtra Public Universities Act, explaining the strategy and road map for a declaration of results on time.
CH Vidyasagar Rao directed the Vice-Chancellor to set up a war room at his level, wherein the Vice-Chancellor along with other functionaries of the Universities shall monitor the progress regarding declaration of results in real time. He further informed Vice Chancellor that all the available human resource and infrastructure be brought together to carry out this task.
Further, the Vice Chancellor is requested for submitting a daily progress report to the Government and to the Chancellor’s Secretariat. This will help the Governor to remain updated with the current scenario in the universities.
The Additional Chief Secretary of Higher and Technical Education Sitaram Kunte was requested to assign a government representative who will monitor the progress in the real time. He was also asked to share a regular feedback with the government and with Chancellors’ office.
