    Nagpur Today: In an exclusive interview with Nagpur Today, Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Mahesh Yenkie clarified many facts that have been haunting the engineering students. He said that RTMNU has been, is and will always be student centric. The varsity has been 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. He added that when there were very few Engineering Colleges, they were able to manage the load. However, over a period of time, with many private engineering colleges coming up, the number of students has also increased. So have the complications in the eligibility, yearly pattern to semester pattern, complications in their admission, carry-on or allowed to keep term facilities etc. However Dr Yenkie added that these complications should be handled by the colleges, which transfer the entire work load with its complications to the varsity.

    While the interview was still on, some student representatives came to Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Mahesh Yenkie to get the clarifications of the engineering college students who had gathered in the RTMNU premises.

    Notification –13-09-2013

    It is notified here, very clearly that the facility of completing the curriculum shall be granted as per above mentioned clauses. However, No candidate shall be eligible to appear in the university examinations unless he/she acquires the requisite eligibility as prescribed under the relevant Directions/ ordinances, applicable to such course. Hence it is made explicitly clear that the appearance in the university  examination of the higher class would be strictly based on the eligibility, prescribed in the relevant Directions/ ordinances.

     

    The students wanted clarifications of some of the doubts about the eligibility to appear in the summer examination of 2014 after fulfilling the conditions of the Ordinances that were taken out on September 13, 2013 after the ten day agitation of the students at Sanvidhan Square.

    Most had issues of their eligibility to appear for the Summer Examinations of 2014 after clearing previous backs.

    The students then revealed something that baffled both the Dean of Engineering Branch RTMNU Dr Ravindra Kshirsagar and Pro-Vice Chancellor of RTMNU Dr Mahesh Yenkie. Both of them said that why are the college authorities not clarifying the doubts. The students alleged that the authorities of most of the engineering colleges in the city have misread or are not clear of what the Ordinances mentions or are unable to decipher and understand the ordinances, which are said to be more than clear on the eligibility of the students and the various rules and regulations which will be in effect for the engineering students. This has caused the chaos among students.

    Some students alleged that the college authorities refused to permit them to appear in the examination because of words like “assessments” written in the Ordinance. Both the Dean of Engineering Branch RTMNU Dr Ravindra Kshirsagar and Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Mahesh Yenkie said that if the Principals, Directors and clerks sitting in various colleges cannot interpret the very clear Ordinances and Notifications. Some media personnel who had joined in later added that if the Principals, Directors, Management, Clerks of the engineering colleges cannot interpret the ordinances issued by the RTMNU, and they are not qualified to occupy the seats. Instead of redressing the queries and problems of the students at the college level, they promptly send the students to the varsity. The media personnel went on to add that have they ever taken 150-200 students to the principals and college authorities to question their role, and for redressing their grievances? They added that the colleges are only bothered about collecting hefty fees from the students. However when the time comes to deal with complications in eligibility and other such problems they shift the onus on to the University authorities.

    When the students wanted some solutions, the Dean of Engineering Branch RTMNU Dr Ravindra Kshirsagar and Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Mahesh Yenkie after deliberations agreed to call a meeting of all the Principals and Directors of all colleges and explain about the two ordinances and the provisions. They also agreed to send a notice, explaining properly the notifications.

    While explaining about the issue of banned colleges, Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Mahesh Yenkie said that the matter was pending in the High Court, in such a situation, why did the colleges give admissions to the 6166 students? This was a sheer case of contempt of court. He added that they too do not want the students to suffer. However, since the case was pending in the court, once the court gives its judgment or directs us to conduct the examination for 6166 students from the banned colleges; we shall immediately conduct the examination.
