Registrars of DAVV and Barkatullah University blamed MPMET exams held in 2009 and the elections for the delay of MBA semesters.
DAVV Registrar RD Musalgaonkar said: ‘VYAPAM conducted MET late in 2009 due to which academic session of the c
olleges got delayed that year. Also, Lok Sabha elections held in the same year compounded the misery. Both these reasons led to a delay in the admission process and also the start of academic year. Nothing was done in that year to make up the time and the delay affected the next academic year too.’Barkatullah University Registrar Sanjay Tiwari also cited the same reasons for stretching of MBA semesters. But, the Directorate of Technical Education ( DTE) on whose directives VYAPAM conducts MET refused to take the blame. In fact it passed the buck on varsities.
‘We asked for results of under graduation exams during counselling in June last year. The results for undergraduate course were not declared till July. We gave an extension of two months but they still did not declare the under graduate results due to which our admission process for higher education got delayed,’said an official at DTE.
