After the officials of several city colleges of Mumbai had a tough time in uploading the internal assessment marks on Mumbai University's online portal due to slow server, the University may give colleges a side of relief by extending the deadline.
Colleges were supposed to feed data of internal assessment on to the online portal by Friday. But after trying hard, many of them were not able to even initiate the process a day before the deadline. The main reason behind the issue is the slow server of Mumbai University's online portal, keeping this in mind university is planning to extend the date of submission of internal assessment by at least a week.
On the other hand, some colleges even complained that they didn't even receive the login ID till Thursday. Technical experts from the Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited (MKCL), which is managing the portal, are not even accessible, claimed principal.
"There is no response from their end. Our officials tried to get in touch with them several times but to no avail. Several colleges got their login ID last week, and due to Diwali holidays our college work was already delayed," says Principal of one of the city colleges affiliated to Mumbai University.
Another principal complained that MKCL's server was extremely slow. "We are expected to fill the scores of more than 1000 students. Especially, the number of students in courses like Bcom is very high. Our officials are sitting online for the whole day, but the process is not very productive as the speed is very slow."
Padma Deshmukh, the controller of examiner, says, "We are planning to increase the deadline by a week. Colleges will be informed about the new deadline by Friday. We have asked MKCL officials to get in touch with colleges individually to address their problems."
