The Pune Municipal Corporation has held back the annual increment of two PMC supervisors for the 15-minute delay in distributing mathematics questions for the state scholarship examination for class IV students at the Hujurpaga school on February 15.

Around 50 affected students at the exam centre are likely to get compensatory marks for the delay.

PMC education officer Sudhakar Tambe said,“While it is difficult to ascertain whether the two supervisors,who are trained and experienced,are actually at fault,the civic body has taken this action to ensure no repeat of such lapses.”

He said the PMC has also recommended the Maharashtra State Council of Examinations (MSCE) to give appropriate compensatory marks to the 50 students who took the examination in two blocks of Hujurpaga School. “MSCE’s decision on compensatory marks will be understood only in April when the results are declared,” Tambe said.

Students of Nutan Marathi Vidyalaya (NMV) and Hujurpaga are among the 50 students likely to get compensatory marks. Most of them could not attempt questions that carried about 10 to 15 marks,as they were not given extra time for the delay. While Tambe had initially refused to accept there was a delay,the two supervisors had accepted their mistake a day after the examinations.
