Minister of Higher Education And Technical Education Maharashtra Uday Samant has tweeted today (13 July 2020) “Today, the meeting of the State Emergency Authority was held under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Uddhav Saheb Thackeray. Even after the guideline given by the UGC, the earlier decision was taken not to conduct the final year examination will not be changed by Maharashtra government”. There is still hope that UGC will change its decision of taking exams of final year students and approve the Maharashtra governments proposed marking scheme for evaluation of marks without taking the exams during this COVID-19 crisis.
The tweet by Uday Samant is given below:
आज राज्य आपत्कालीन प्राधिकरणाची बैठक मा मुख्यमंत्री उद्धवसाहेब ठाकरे यांच्या अध्यक्षतेखाली पार पडली.. UGC ने दिलेल्या गाईडलाईन नंतर सुद्धा अंतिम वर्षाच्या परीक्षा न घेण्याचा पूर्वीचाच निर्णय कायम करण्यात आला.
