Mumbai: After the MU chancellor and state governor C. Vidyasagar Rao issued a show-cause notice to the vice-chancellor Dr Sanjay Deshmukh for failing to declare results before July 31, a source confirmed that Mr Deshmukh has no chance of returning back to his post ever.

Mr Deshmukh’s decision to use the online assessment system led to the delay of the declaration of the final year result by over three and a half months. According to the Maharashtra Universities Act, a university has to declare results within 30 days of the examinations, with a permissible deadline of up to 45 days. However, by any chance, if the results are delayed beyond 45 days, the university is liable to submit an explanation to the governor through its VC.

The posts of the vice-chancellor, pro vice-chancellor and registrar are lying empty. Dr Devanand Shinde has taken over as acting VC, and since last three years, the post of pro-VC has been lying vacant. However, currently, Dr Dhiren Patel, director of Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute (VJTI) have taken over as acting Pro VC. On July 18, the central government appointed M.A. Khan, the registrar of the varsity as the CEO of the Central Haj Committee that means his seat is vacant as well.
