“We will announce our first decision on Monday on how we will conduct exams for students in the final year of graduation and after graduation,” Samant told reporters.
“Student safety is of the utmost importance, and decisions are made without compromising safety,” he said.
Prime Minister Uddhav Thackeray has asked his ministry to conduct audits with extreme caution and in a simplified manner, he added.
A six-person committee headed by Dr. Suhas Pednekar, vice chancellor of the University of Mumbai, was formed to make recommendations on how to conduct exams, the minister said.
The Shiv Sena-led government of Maharashtra was against conducting an investigation into the coronavirus situation.
But the state will respect the Apex court’s decision, Samant said on Friday.
He also appealed not to divulge misleading reports on audit plans and the government would post dates at the right time.
