The Mumbai University (MU) has completed more than 93 per cent of the work of evaluating answer sheets,an affidavit filed in the Bombay High Court on Friday claims.
The affidavit filed by D D Ghuge,deputy registrar of MUs central assessment cell,says that the university has taken prompt steps for completion of the assessment work soon.
Ghuge also claims that the assessment of only a total of nine courses has taken more than the requisite 45 days. In case of 39 courses,the evaluation is said to have been completed within 45 days.
The statistics put forward by the university indicate that architecture and hotel management are the courses in which a significant number of answer papers still need to be assessed. Assessment of about 73 per cent of architecture papers and 85 per cent hotel management papers remain.
The university also claims that all answer sheets of Master of Arts and Bachelor of Mass Media courses have been evaluated.
The state government put forward its stand on Friday through an affidavit filed by Rajaram Jadhav,the deputy secretary to the higher and technical education department.
Jadhav claimed that in a meeting on March 12,all universities were addressed and apprised of the situation by the department. The affidavit also states that the results for the Shivaji University in Kolhapur will be declared on June 15.
A group of university graduate and post-graduate teachers had gone on strike demanding recognition for non- NET/ SET teachers appointed between April 1991 and January 2000. The strike,however,was called off on May 19.
The Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had initially moved court to challenge the legality of the strike. It now demands that steps should be taken to declare the results,which have been delayed on account of the strike as soon as possible.
The case has been adjourned to June 20.
