Mumbai University result 2017: After missing the result declaration deadline multiple times, the University of Mumbai on Wednesday told the Bombay High Court that it will declare all the remaining results and issue all mark sheets by September 19. The varsity said that it is now likely to complete the entire process of assessing answer sheets, declaring results, and issuing mark sheets for its undergraduate regular courses by September 19. Mumbai University counsel Rui Rodrigues appeared on Behalf of the institute and said, “We have completed most of the work and are trying to declare all results for regular undergraduate courses by September 19, besides issuing the mark sheets. The results for courses offered through distance learning, however, will take some more time.” Rodrigues went on to blame the recent festivals for the delay in the announcement of result. “Several teaching staff remained unavailable for assessment work on account of the holidays,” he said.
A division bench comprising of Justice Anoop V Mohta and Justice Bharati Dangre is overlooking the matters concerning the Mumbai University declaration. The bench said that the university could not point to the unavailability of staff as a reason for the delay, according to Indian Express. The bench further directed the Common Entrance Test (CET) cell to extend its deadline for filing of online forms for applying to the university’s three-year Law courses to September 22 from the earlier deadline of August 31. “Such extension is essential for such helpless students, who had made it to the merit list of the Law CET conducted earlier this year, but were unable to secure admissions to colleges of their choice in the absence of their undergraduate marksheets,” the court was quoted saying.
Further, the High Court bench has asked the Mumbai University to a statement in writing, giving all the details of the likely date of completion of the assessment, declaration of results, and the delivery of the mark sheets to all students. The MU counsel informed the court that out of the total 477 examinations conducted by the varsity, the results for 464 exams had already been declared. He said, that the “results of 5,932 students of Banking and Insurance are likely to be declared by this evening.”
