It is due to the unexpected recent unseasonal rainfall in Mumbai that the Mumbai university decided to waive tuition and exam fees of the students. The University has also decided to conduct the re-examination for the three students who were arrested for protesting against the falling of trees in Aarey Colony in Mumbai. The authorities have also decided to write to the governor for seeking withdrawal of the cases against the students who were arrested in October.
According to the words of Dr Suhas Pednekar who is Vice-Chancellor of Mumbai University, “We want to tell the students affected by flood that we are with them. We appeal to them not to give up on education because of financial difficulties. Mumbai University will waive fees of the affected students. We will upload details on the website in few days.”
Officials also said that the NSS unit of the university has provided relief material worth Rs 25 lakh so far in the affected area. You can get more information on http://mu.ac.in/ .
Also, the senate members of the Mumbai University have claimed that the university should pay the lawyer’s fees of 938 non-teaching temporary employees. This is for the employees who moved to supreme court for the increase in their wages. They demanded that they have been sincere members from several years of the Mumbai University and thus deserve to be regularized.
There were other issues also raised by the members for the MU. They bring out that the University has not taken any action in the cases of the need of Police Chowki inside the Kalina campus, lack of grievance cells in more than 400 colleges and there are students who have completed the course yet have been deprived of degrees. University also needs to take action in cases where students have received bogus degrees.
