Governor Sacked Mumbai University VC Sanjay Deshmukh Over Exam Results Mess”

"The entire fiasco of online assessment of answer sheets which resulted in causing irreparable damage to the job opportunities and higher studies of lakhs of students could have been prevented had the chancellor's office taken timely cognisance of the series of complaints lodged by teachers", the Bombay University and College Teachers' Union (BUCTU) said in a statement. So after many such attempts and lack of producing results for students, Governor of Maharashtra has sacked Mumbai University's Vice Chancellor, Sanjay Deshmukh.

Governor and Chancellor of University of Mumbai, CH. Vidyasagar Rao on Tuesday removed Sanjay Deshmukh as the Vice-Chancellor of the University for his negligence and delaying in announcement of examination results.

The Governor acted in the exercise of powers conferred upon him under Section 11 (14) (e) of the Maharashtra Public Universities Act 2016, Deshmukh introduced the online assessment process through the OSM system for the first time this year. He became the first VC to be sacked in the history of Mumbai University.

As per the Act, the university is mandated to declare all examination results within 30 days, and in no case beyond 45 days. Mr Devanand Shinde was placed on a "special duty" that was to clear the mess Deshmukh had allegedly created. The decision was announced late last evening by the office of the Governor of Maharashtra, Ch Vidyasagar Rao.

Deshmukh was sent on indefinite leave by the Governor and new in-charge Vice Chancellor was appointed from Kolhapur university.

Agitations have been continuing against the university and Deshmukh, including the latest one on Tuesday when the aggrieved students staged a dharna at the Kalina Campus.

"While appointing the (current) Vice Chancellor, persons with more experience and qualifications were bypassed to appoint Deshmukh, merely because he is well connected with the RSS and had spent three years with RSS think tank Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini", Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant had said in a statement at the time. Many are still awaiting their results, nearly six months after taking their exams.
