No relief yet, BE students prepare for court

Nagpur News: The first day of reopening of Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj (RTM) Nagpur University offered no relief to BE (Bachelor of Engineering) students awaiting a resolution in the revaluation scandal.

“The fresh dates of fifth and seventh semester exams have not been finalised yet”, Controller of Examinations Vilas Ramteke told Nagpur Today, “The papers that have been submitted in challenge to revaluation will be looked at by the Board of Examiners, who will then decide what steps to take”.  The dean of Engineering, Dr. R V Kshirsagar, suggested that postponed exams be held between December 20 and January 10 for minimum delay loss to students, but the suggestion is yet to be acted upon. The fate of 6, 000 students are still hanging and many might lose an academic year and placements as University authorities came back from their Diwali vacations this morning.

Students, meanwhile, are beginning to lose hope of a solution from the university itself, and are collecting names and grievances with a plan to approach the court collectively. At least a hundred and fifty students of all batches from Gondia, Umrer, Chandrapur and Wardha have filled in forms and given in copies of their mark sheets for the petition. More are expected to join tomorrow. The students are in search of a lawyer to represent them.
