    Governor refuses to acknowledge ordinances of RTMNU: Engineering students feel cheated

    DSC_0247 (7)

    Nagpur Today: Nearly 300 students from various engineering colleges had gathered in front of the University on March 22, 2014. They had gathered there in order to press their demands to be permitted in the Summer Examination 2014 after fulfilling all the conditions mentioned in the notifications or ordinance of September 13, 2013 and March 11, 2014, which the Vice Chancellor Vilas Sapkal had allegedly refused to accept based on the oral instructions of the Governor.

    Recently during an exclusive interview with Nagpur Today Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Mahesh Yenkie and the Dean of Engineering Branch RTMNU Dr Ravindra Kshirsagar had clarified many facts which were haunting the engineering students. They had said that RTMNU has been, is and will always be student centric and that the varsity is doing everything in its powers to ensure that the students do not suffer and lose money or time in getting details of their admission, eligibility, examinations etc.


    The students who had issues, relating to their eligibility to appear for the Summer Examinations of 2014 after fulfilling all the criterion and eligibility formalities were allegedly refused by the Vice Chancellor Vilas Sapkal and Controller of Examinations Ramteke on March 21, 2014 and had called their admission itself as illegal based on the instructions of the Governor.

    The Governor had allegedly called these notifications illegal and is diluting the quality of education. Many authorities in the varsity felt that favouring these students who have been failing for more than 4 to 5 times is sheer wastage of time and money. They are not worth continuing in engineering.

    However, according to some of the students i.e. Prakalp Warzulkar from MIET Gondia, Santosh Singh from Priyadarshini and Kunal Bawankar of KITS Ramtek  who had gone to meet the controller of Examinations (COE ) Ramteke, COE said that I have not read the 6 pages Notification taken out by the varsity in September 13, 2014. He went on to add that it is written in such complicated English that I am not able to even understand that. He straight away refused the Notification and stated that all the admissions received by the colleges are null and void and illegal. So there is no question of the students being allowed to appear in the Summer Examinations.

    The students pointed out that based on the conditions mentioned in the notification; all the students have even submitted an undertaking in an Rs 100 Stamp Paper. However Ramteke refused to accept these conditions.

    After that the students were forced to meet the Vice Chancellor of RTMNU Vilas Sapkal. The VC too was adamant and said that he will not accept the conditions mentioned in the notifications, while it has the signature of the Registrar Dr A V Gomase. This is a sheer case of showing adamancy.

    However, when the students met the Dean of Engineering Branch RTMNU Dr Ravindra Kshirsagar and Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Mahesh Yenkie, both of them  agree that based on Ordinances of September 13, 2013 and March 11, 2014, the students are eligible to sit for the Summer Examinations of 2014.

    Nagpur Today investigated and found that the students were misled by some politicians or student leaders into believing that the VC and COE are behaving high-handedly while in fact it the Governor who has stopped the notification to come into effect.
