NAGPUR: Stating that the conduction of two examinations would put additional financial pressure, most of the colleges affiliated to Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) have rejected the 50:50 formula proposed by Vice-Chancellor Dr Siddharth Vinayak Kane. The college authorities also cited shortage of teachers as one of the reasons for rejecting the proposal.
A delegation of RTMNU Principals’ Forum, led by Dr Babanrao Taywade, met the Vice-Chancellor and conveyed their decision to him. They reiterated the demand for increase in the payment made by the RTMNU for printing question papers. The Vice-Chancellor had assured twice that the payment would be increased however no action was initiated in this direction so far. Now colleges would be facing difficulties in conducting exams in the winter session, Dr Taywade said.
The Forum said that the University had agreed to pay Rs 12 per student to colleges to meet the expenses of stationary and examination, but nothing was done in this regard. Similarly, the assurance of providing UPS and a generator to every college was also not met.
The Forum also demanded that teachers should allotted valuation work as per the University Academic Plan, and that police security must be provided during the examinations.
