Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) has convened a meeting of Ordinance Committee on Thursday (August 7) for discussing amendments suggested by Governor’s Office on the issue of special examination of 6616 students belonging to 63 colleges. The  Governor’s Office has reportedly given its consent for holding special examination as demanded by the students. The decision by Governor’s Office in this regard has reportedly been taken in view of academic session of students.

It may be recalled, Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) had regularized admissions of 6613 students of 63 colleges out of 250 banned colleges after these colleges completed the process of appointing one regular teacher. Subsequently, Management Council, in an emergency meeting, approved an Ordinance facilitating special exam for these students. Earlier, the Academic Council in its meeting had approved the Ordinance. Similarly, Board of Examination, too, had given its approval tto the Ordinance. The Ordinance was later sent to Governor’s Office for consent. The Governor’s Office in turn sent the Ordinance to Higher and Technical Education Department’s experts for study and further course of action. The Ordinance had recommended special exam and admission to second year for these students. The experts, after studying the Ordinance, opined the special exam as appropriate and notified the Governor’s Office about the same. Subsequently, the Governor’s Office consented the Ordinance but with some recommendations.

Thereafter, the Management Council will give its approval to the amended Ordinance in its regular meeting to be held on August 19 and thus clear way for holding the special exam of 6616 students.
