The Patna University administration on Thursday decided that an nnfair means prevention committee would look into the grievances of the expelled MBA students.
The first-semester MBA examinees of Patna University and representatives of various students’ organisation on Thursday met the pro-vice-chancellor urging him to take up the issue of expulsion.
As there was no examination on Thursday, the students protesting against the varsity administration against their expulsion remained mum.
The examinees, for the past two days, have been protesting against the expulsion of 18 MBA first-semester examinees and cancellation of the second paper held on March 21.
The students also demanded withdrawal of the university order.
The pro-vice-chancellor (VC), Ranjeet Kumar Verma, told The Telegraph: “The university administration had called a meeting with representatives of MBA students to discuss ways so that the examination can be held at the university without any disturbance.”
Verma said the administration assured the students of having a sympathetic consideration of their grievances and added that the unfair means prevention committee, headed by him, would look into the students’ matter.
The committee would decide the quantum of punishment for students.
The university administration also asked the students to submit a petition about their grievances.
Two days back, Patna University issued a notice stating that students who have been expelled for a semester would be allowed to take the test later.
The students expelled in the first semester would be allowed to take the first semester papers in the third semester examinations.
Owing to protests of the students, the postgraduate examinations of many subjects were postponed.
Sources said the university administration has decided to postpone the examination of March 24 to April 1.
The new date for the cancelled test on March 26 is yet to be announced.
