Pune: Thousands of mechanical engineering students aspiring to appear for the Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) exam are in a soup as the deadline to submit applications for the main exam to recruit Assistant Motor Vehicle Inspectors (AMVI) has neared but the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) has not declared their results yet.
The students are unable to fill application forms for AMVI, which requires the marks of Bachelor of Engineering (BE) to be entered in the form for completion of the procedure.
“I have cleared the preliminary exam for the AMVI. Now, I want to apply for the main exam. However, until SPPU publishes the results, I cannot proceed with my form filling,” said Swapnil Thipse, a student of BE Mechanical Engineering.
The engineering exam got over on May 24 this year. According to the rules, results of the exams must be declared after 45 days from the last date of exam. Since the university has not announced the results, thousands of students have been deprived of filling the application forms for the MPSC exam, which is scheduled for July 15.
“We have been repeatedly visiting the university to contact the authorities to know about the results. But no official has told us anything about it. We have approached the MPSC administration as well, requesting them to give us some more time but they have refused to extend the date any further,” said Mayur Nikam.
However, SPPU Vice-Chancellor Nitin Karmalkar has assured that the results will be declared before July 15.
“I cannot confirm the date of declaration of results but they will be announced as soon as possible. We will ensure that it is released before the deadline,” said Karmalkar.
