Vice-chancellor of Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) said that he has appointed a committee which will look into the matters of complaints from the students.
From sometime the students of the university are complaining repeatedly about the exam department of the University. The complaints being the difficulty in accessing the photocopies of the answer sheets, delay in the results and on several occasions some students have been marked as absent despite being present in the exam.
Any details about the committee have been kept silent by the University.
In a most recent incident the 147 students of the Ayojan School of Architecture and Design were marked as absent in the exam. In a similar incident, 11 students of the MIT engineering college were marked as absent in the exam of Mobile computing despite having appeared for both written and oral exams.
University officials said that for now the errors have been rectified by the college and students have been awarded the marks but this is a serious mistake.
“Sometimes, the lapse is… on behalf of college authorities… in this case, I was told that the college sent incomplete details… the roll no. of students were mentioned but other details were missing. So, it is not only a lapse on behalf of the varsityʼs department. However, I always give priority to students' issues as they should not suffer on any account. I have given instructions to first correct the results, which I believe has been done. As far as the lapses are concerned, the committee will inquire into these complaints and incidents. We need to verify if the lapses are occurring at the University's department level or at the college level… wherever the gap is, we need to fix it,” he said.
Other complaints include leaking of question papers of various engineering streams through the social media channel.
