University exams can take place at Maharashtra in Final Year – Governor Koshyari on CMs decisions.
According to Mumbai Live, On Sunday, 31 May Maharashtra CM, Uddhav Thackeray announced the cancellation of the Final-year college examination in the state. On June 2, however, Governor Koshyari ruled that a decision was to be made according to the Act.
On Sunday, 31 May, Uddhav Thackeray, Maharashtra Chief Minister, announced the termination of the final year of Maharashtra university examinations and that students will be tagged in aggregate. Nevertheless, Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari did not agree with this decision, and he declared that a decision would be made on such tests on the basis of the Maharashtra Public Universities Act.
In the last few days, the Government of Maharashtra and the governor seem to have unresolved issues. The decision had to be revised after Governor Koshyari had agreed to use him as the Chancellor of universities and reports that the decision of CM Uddhav Thackeray to canalize the final year exams for students of Mumbai University and other universities throughout the country was not satisfactory. According to the rules, the Chancellor of the Universities has the decisive authority and the message concerning the decision of the Governor has been shared on Twitter.
The decision to carry out final year exams of students in line with the provisions of the law has been forwarded to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
Although senior officials at the university called the move ‘unprecented,’ the decisions have not been made taking account of legal impacts. Nonetheless, after the decision was declared on Sunday by the CM, several students thanked him and were also grateful for this decision. Whilst addressing the state, Uddhav Thackeray said the final-year university exams had been discontinued due to the lockdown of the coronavirus, and the potential for the lacquering of students and staff members would be wrong to conduct tests during this crisis.
He added that the decision was taken following consultation with the university vice-chancellors but that the statement by Governor Koshyari points out the opposite. The letter addressed to the CM by the Governor stated that the VCs were prepared to conduct their examinations and that they had not been presented until now with the report prepared by the committee under Minister Uday Sawant.
Uday Samant had previously written to the University Grants Commission (UGC), Minister of Higher and Technical Education, to seek permission to cancel state university exams in May, at a meeting with the Committee following. Furthermore, in spite of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) had granted authorization for CBSE and ICSE exams and the Governor said that if university examinations for students were also to be carried out if they would be scheduled for school boards.
He emphasised that the guidelines of UGC recommend that the national government carry out final student examinations and that the state government follow the guidelines.
