The Chairman and Controller of Examination, MSW, Prurushttom Dhote was also called to COE office. COE Ramteke claimed that no notification regarding the Viva was issued by the university, then how come these students were asked to appear for Viva. According to students, at the very last moment SMSes were sent to them about cancellation of Viva.
Taking cognizance of this, the COE has issued show cause notice to the concerned authorities and has assured of conducting the Viva in next 4 days.
