Nagpur: The shabby state of affairs being run in RTMNU came to the fore when the Controller of Examinations Dr Niraj Khati on Wednesday appeared before the Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court and confessed bungling in the valuation of an answer paper of a MBA student and declaring the student as failed. Answer to one question was not at all checked by the evaluator and even the student was declared as failed, confessed Dr Khati leaving the Bench of Justice Bhushan Gavai and Justice Pradeep Deshmukh ‘disappointed’ with the dismal affairs of Examination Department of Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University. The High Court directed the RTMNU to get the answer paper of the concerned student rechecked by two experts and submit the report in the court.
The name of the student has been identified as Rohit Bagde, a student of MBA. Rohit appeared for Second Semester exam in 2015 winter. When the result of the exam was declared, Rohit failed in “Qualitative Analysis” subject. Hence he applied to the RTMNU for the answer paper. He was shocked to find that an answer of a question was not at all checked. Subsequently, Rohit lodged a complaint with office of the Controller of Examination and pointed out the glaring mistake. However, Rohit did not get any response from the department forcing him to move the High Court.
The hearing was held before Justice Bhushan Gavai and Justice Pradeep Deshmukh. Taking a serious note of the matter, the judges directed the Controller of Examinations Dr Niraj Khati to appear before them personally. Dr Khati, as directed, appeared in the court and accepted the bungle on the part of the Examinations Department. Expressing disappointment over the affairs, the Court directed the RTMNU to get the answer paper of the concerned student rechecked by two experts and submit the report in the court by February 25.
