The University of Pune (UoP) will soon establish a control room for coordinating the various works and processes of the examination department. The move to have such a facility was discussed at a day long meeting of the board of examination (BoE), which was presided over by officiating vice-chancellor Sanjay Chahande. Controller of Examination C. M. Chitale and the deans of various faculties were present.
A number of other options, including installation of closed circuit television (CCTV) units at the centralized assessment process (CAP) facilities, where the university exam papers are assessed; speeding up of the proposal for establishment of a permanent CAP building on the university premises; computerization of exam department works and making the processes, ranging from submission of forms to declaration of the results, more efficient and student-friendly, were discussed.The meeting assumed significance in the wake of the criticism drawn by the exam department over the last few months for what the UoP senate members have dubbed as its inefficiency and inaction to deal with irregularities and scams. The issue had figured prominently at the senate meeting on March 24 and Chahande had then assured that the BoE meeting would be called to discuss various options for exam department.One of the BoE members, who did not wish to be named, told TOI that the UoP runs CAP facility at 38 colleges across the city for assessment of papers of university exam. The papers are usually moved from colleges to the CAP centre and post-assessment, to the university for processing of the results. All this results in undue workload and it was suggested that the university should speed up the proposal for setting up an independent CAP building on the varsity premises, the member said. Senior senate member Gajanan Ekbote had called upon the university administration to take the exam department lapses seriously and go for concrete steps such as installation of CCTV at CAP centres to monitor the activities there. The members also called for more student-friendly processes related to submission of examination forms and relaxation in the late fee system. The vice-chancellor has assured a positive action on these suggestions.
