University of Pune officiating vice-chancellor Sanjay Chahande has said that the university will stop outsourcing the exam departments work with effect from June 2012. The varsity’s exam department has been in the news in the recent past for instances of bogus mark lists and the action initiated against four of the department’s employees in connection with the same over the last two months. Chahande said, “We have taken a decision to stop outsourcing from June 2012. Instead, the emphasis will be on strengthening the computerization drive at the department and evaluation of papers at the varsity itself. Barring some important academic courses, all exam-related work is outsourced to external agencies. A major cause behind the exam department’s present woes is also the inadequate number of staff required for handling the vast exam work.
As of now, a bulk of the work is being done by people engaged on contract service. Chahande said, “We have already released advertisements for filling up 550 vacant posts in the exam department. Once the new employees are recruited, the university will not have to rely on people on contract”. On the neglect of the varsity competitive examination centre, Chahande said, “I have personally visited the centre after reports about students facing inconvenience. We have now appointed two additional deputy directors to take care of the centre. On the delay in completion of the Ph.D admissions, Chahande said; that the first of the two-stage entrance process has already been completed and results of online paper-I were announced the same day. The time-table for paper-II has been disrupted, but we are sure that the admissions will be completed soon, he added.Foundation Day:Veteran Raghunath, poet Mashelkar Mangesh Padgaonkar, will be among and the noted six persons scientist to receive the UoP's Jeevan Sadhana lifetime achievement awards at the varsities 63rd foundation day on February 10th.
