Maharashtra Minister Uday Samant met with Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Wednesday to discuss the issue of holding university exams last year in the light of the Supreme Court order.
The Minister of Higher Education and Technical Education called Koshyari here in Raj Bhavan and was accompanied by Minister of State Prajakt Tanpure, according to an official press release.
Following the guidelines of the Universities Grants Commission, the Supreme Court ruled last week that no state or university can sponsor final year / final semester students without taking exams.
The court also ruled that the UGC’s instructions to universities and colleges to hold final exams by September 30 are within its scope.
An SC bank also said that if a state or area of the union, exercising its jurisdiction under the Civil Protection Act, has decided that it is not possible to conduct the audit by September 30, they can apply to the UGC for an extension the deadline.
On Monday, Samant said the majority of the 13 non-agricultural universities in Maharashtra have asked the state government to request an extension to hold last year’s exams and announce the results by October 31.
