MUMBAI: The Bombay University and College Teachers’ Union has written to the University Grants Commission stating that Mumbai University has violated its guidelines for conduct of first-year for undergraduate students of traditional streams. The union said the has failed to comply with the norm of having at least 90 days of teaching, and instead directed to close the first semester exams by January 9—at least two weeks short of the mandatory semester academic time available for teaching.
It did not announce dates for commencement of first-year classes. As a result, online lectures started in a nonuniform manner across colleges ...students are neither getting 90 teaching days nor a preparatory break,” said general secretary Madhu Paranajpe. The union has asked MU to direct colleges to schedule first-year exams in the last week of January.
