D-Day arrives: 2900 students, out of 6616, to appear for special exams from August 28

Nagpur News.

The day has arrived. Thursday the August 28 will be ‘Special’ as the Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) will be conducting special exams for students of 63 colleges. However, only 2900 students, out of 6616, will be appearing for the special exams to be held at 25 centers. The exams will be held from 2.30 pm to 5.30 pm and will last till September 26.

It may be mentioned that the RTMNU had given permission for holding special exams for a total of 6616 students of 63 colleges out of 250 colleges. The issue of special exams was pending with Governor’s Office. These 63 colleges had completed the process of appointing at least one regular teacher. Subsequently, the RTMNU regularized the admissions of 6616 students and thus paved the way for conducting the special exam to begin from August 28. However, the number of students started declining with each passing day and now only 2900 students are appearing for the special exams. The remaining 3716 students ‘vanished’ from the scene for reasons better known to them and also point out the working style college administrations.


However, it is mandatory for all these 63 colleges to submit an affidavit to the University stating adherence to the rules that the students completed 180 days of academic session and 90 days of academic session for semester. Similarly, adherence to rule pertaining to 75 percent attendance of students has to be stated in the affidavit.

It may be recalled, the RTMNU, by a notification issued on June 7, 2013, had barred admissions in 250 colleges for not having a single regular teacher and for indulging in other irregularities. The ban had become a flashpoint of a major showdown between college managements and the RTMNU leading to dozens of agitations.

The courses:

The courses for which the special exams will be held include BBA, Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Fashion Design, Bachelor of Textile Science, Bachelor of Physical Education, MBA, CVS and others.
