The university will hold the semester examination from June to August this year. While the students can fill up their forms and pay the examination fees online, the college has to forward the form from its portal to reach the university exam department.
However, many colleges are holding on to the filled up forms without forwarding them to the university when the student has not paid the pending yearly or semester fees.

Director of the board of examination and evaluation at SPPU Mahesh Kakade, via a circular on Monday, said, “It has come to our attention that the examination forms filled online by the students are not being sent (inwarded) to the university by the institute citing that the student has not paid his or her full fees. This is not acceptable. Colleges must ensure that examination forms of all students are filled and inwarded so that there is no academic loss for students.”
A student, who did not wish to be named, said, “Our practical and internal marks are still with the college authorities. We cannot openly criticise the college or its wrong-doings because there is a chance that they will target students. All we are asking is to give us some more time to send the pending fees. All of us and our families are going through a financial crisis and hence have not been able to pay the fees. Moreover, colleges too should cut down their fees because many facilities for which they are taking fees are not being utilised for over a year.”
The circular is out, but colleges are still reluctant to inward the examination forms. Students are being threatened that their forms will not be inwarded without paying the full fees. Colleges are openly flouting a university order. The university should provide separate Google Forms or e-mail to lodge a complaint and take immediate action against the erring colleges, says Kamalakar Shete I Student Activist.
