Taking strong note of delay in result declaration owing to unavailability of teachers for assessment, the Mumbai University has decided to take remedial measures. Accordingly, it has been decided that colleges must finish assessment of first and second-year degree college exams by March 30, declare results, and send the requisite "proofs" to the university.
"We cannot afford to have any laxity on the part of colleges and teachers. Every year, we keep running after them to send teachers for evaluation, this cannot go on," said AD Sawant, university pro-vice chancellor. "This is to ensure that teachers are not engaged in college exam work beyond this period and is available for the university's central assessment programme," said Sawant.
