Nagpur News: In a significant decision, the Board of Examination (BoE) of RTMNU has upheld the degrees given by 250 colleges as valid and also termed the internal marks allotted to the students as correct and valid. The BoE decision will certainly provide the much needed relief to the colleges and the students, too, as the issue had got tangled in a major controversy and questions were being raised over its validity. The BoE meeting was held on Friday.

It may be recalled that in accordance with the Clause No. 75 and 76 of Maharashtra University Act’s Ordinance, once the results of the examination are declared, they cannot be changed after three months. Similarly, the Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University had authorized the managements of the 250 colleges, which did not have a single regular teacher, to sign the documents of the students. The BoE, holding the RTMNU’s authorization as the basis, dismissed the questions raised over the 1378 degrees and internal marks given to the students by the 250 colleges having no regular teachers. Now, the report would be submitted to the Management Council.

According to reports, the Vice-Chancellor Dr Vilas Sapkal presented two different reports in the BoE meeting. One report validated the internal marks while the second report showed confusing situation as far as the marks were concerned. The “double standards” put the RTMNU in the dock as members raised questions over the shabby state of affairs and working style. Interestingly, Sanjay Khadatkar’s report in connection with Convocation Ceremony was supposed to be presented in the meeting. However, the report file was not even touched.
