Delay in results : Students stage protest at Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya

Miffed over the delay in results and discrepancies in mark allotment in examinations, hundreds of students thronged the administrative campus of Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya ( DAVV ) with their complaints on Tuesday, resulting in a standstill for few hours in the morning.

Complaining poor marks in the first professional of Bachelor of Dental Surgery course in three different private colleges, students alleged that the college has deliberately failed candidates with two to four marks. Accepting the complaints of students, Vice Chancellor Dr D.P Singh ordered a joint committee, that included college faculty and members of varsity examination committee, to look into the matter and submit its report within five days. “The committee will review the copies and marks allotted against the answers written and if discrepancies are found rechecking will be done. Action will be initiated against the teachers who checked the copies,” said Singh while hearing the complaints.

In another complaint, students studying MSc course raised concerns over delayed result declaration. The Vice Chancellor ordered evaluation by centre officials while insisting that they check the copies and declare results on the spot. “A date will be given to the students to appear at the evaluation centre with their representative and results will be declared on spot,” said Nimesh Pathak, an activist fighting for the cause of students.

Devi Ahilya Vishwavidhyalaya PG Admission 2012

Just two weeks after deciding to hold Common Entrance Test ( CET ) for admissions to all its 30 post graduate departments, Devi Ahilya Vishwavidhyalaya ( DAVV ) back – tracked expressing its inability to hold the mammoth exercise. A special executive council meeting has been convened on 30th April, 2012 to discuss the matter.

Executive council ( EC ) of DAVV in its meeting on 13th April, 2012 had decided to hold the CET for the admissions. The university administration refused to abide by the EC decision citing its inability to organize the test for around 4,000 seats. The move turned many a faces red in the EC questioning the very utility and authority of the EC.

EC member Ravi Saxena said that the Council has failed to impose its decision on the university. “If the university does what they ( the university administration ) decide then what the use of having an EC,” said Saxena. He said that he will not attend the special executive council meeting.

The university administration maintains that it is already overburdened with the examination Procedure and presently it is not in a position to shoulder any additional burden including that of organizing a CET.

Earlier, it was decided that DAVV will conduct an online CET for six departments. Later things zeroed in on conducting the exam in conventional method and to hold the CET for all PG departments. Only 1,200 seats in seven departments of self financing courses were filled by CET.

This is not the first instance when the university administration has refused to follow the EC decisions. Sources said that the university wants to maintain status quo over the admissions. The university is struggling to conduct semester examinations and declare the results on Schedule. Some of the courses too are running behind the Schedule, sources added.
