Low attendance bone of contention between students, management

Low attendance has become a bone of contention between students and the management of a city college, even as the II PU final exams began on March 12. As many as 120 students from Sindhi PU College have not been given hall tickets to write the exams, leading to a bitter tussle between the students, their parents and the management.

However, Pallavi Vinod, principal, Sindhi PU College, said they were not doing anything unethical, and the students who had been denied permission to write the exams had severe shortage of attendance. “We had kept parents in the loop about the attendance shortage. Paying fine is not a way of making up for the shortage,” Ms. Vinod said. With her office being ransacked a day before the exams began, police personnel have been deployed at the college now.

Meanwhile, Sushama Godbole, Director, Department of Pre-University Education, who had intervened when trouble began, said the board had received a representation from the parents and they were examining it.
