Mumbai University has taken a strong step against the colleges who have provided wrong information about the admit cards and hall tickets to its students.
The university has already served notices to these colleges, asking an explanation about their unprofessional behavior. This notice demanding explanation has been sent to 50 commerce colleges, 30 science colleges and 25 tech humanities colleges.
Apart from this drastic error, these colleges also submitted students' details late and due to this, the processing of hall tickets got delayed.
"This October exam session has been marked by chaos caused by the generation of thousands of inaccurate hall tickets. Examinees' information came at the eleventh hour, impacting exam procedures such as seating arrangement, which could not be finalised till a few hours before the exams," says university's officials.
However, colleges are passing the buck to MKCL (Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited). Ravindra Ghagas, Principal of Dnyan Bharati Society's Sau Sitabai Ramkrushna Karandikar College in Dhanu says, "The fault was of the MKCL. The corporation handles much of the university's back-end IT work, includin processing of hall tickets."
Sunil Angre, who is IT cell in-charge, Dhanu College said that we were told that the student registration data provided to MKCL in 2011-2012 had got corrupted. So MKCL asked us to send the data again on Excel sheets. It took us two days to compile that, they then asked for info of final year students taking the exams.
