As per the TOI reports, "Students have adequate time to prepare for CET. So we decided not to postpone it," the minister said.

Justifying PU education department director Pallavi Akurathi's transfer, he said: "We cannot blame her because she took charge only a month before the exams began. If it were an officer who had been in the department for a long time, I would have suspended that officer."

However, the DPUE will be conducting the chemistry re-exam on April 12.
