Providing immediate relief to four students of Public Administration who alleged that the department failed to forward their examination forms to examination branch and around 27 students were denied roll numbers,the Panjab University higher authorities have allowed them to appear in the examination.
The examination of second year is starting from May 21 while that of first year from May 23.
Amanjit Singh of MA second year,Sharanjit Singh of MA first year and Anirudh Rana of MA first year also submitted a representation to the authorities.
The Students Organization of Panjab University (SOPU),one of the students outfits on the PU campus,also staged a dharna in front of the Vice Chancellors office to get due rights of the students of Public Administration Department. The students alleged that head of the Public Administration Department did not allow four students to submit their examination forms by the due date.
The students were misguided saying that their examination forms cannot be forwarded because of their short attendance. A fine of Rs 20,000 was also imposed on these students for not submitting the examination forms on time, said Rashpal Hakuwala,party president and Arshnoor Dhilllon,campus president.
On behalf of the Dean Students Welfare (DSW),Prof Yog Raj Angrish listened to the students and after talking to the higher authorities it was decided that using special power granted to DWS and other authorities lecture compensation will be given to the students. The authorities also accepted the examination forms of the students.
We helped the students as much as we can. The students approached the authorities very late, he added.
