NAGPUR: In a major respite to students, the Nagpur University (NU) Vice Chancellor SP Kane on Tuesday repealed the controversial rule that barred Allowed to keep term (ATKT) students of Master of Physical Education (MPEd), Master of Education (MEd) and Bachelor of Education (BEd) from appearing in final exam of the course.
On March 13, 2017, TOI was first to report the anomaly in the syllabi of these courses.
Kane said the issue was on his priority list and he spent majority of the day getting the new direction issued. “It was a small error and has been rectified through a corriendgum using the special powers accorded to vice chancellor.
By Wednesday morning, the new direction will be uploaded on university’s website. The students will get immediate relief and they are now eligible for the final semesters.”
Kane added that in case a rule is not in consonance with the directives, ordinance, statutes or the Act then the VC can use his special powers to modify the rule. “The amended rule is now based on the Ordinance number 10 of NU,” he said.
