Pune: The students of Genba Sopanrao Moze (GSM) Commerce College in Yerwada are facing a peculiar problem as the college is working without a principal for over two months now. This has affected the results of first-year students besides severely affecting the leaving/transfer certificates of the final year students.
The situation arose as the acting principal completed her tenure on April 30 and after that no appointments were made.
“We have initiated the selection process for the appointment of the principal,” said the officials from the college.
“We agree that students are facing the problem, but it will be normalised very soon. We have got the permission (a signed letter) from the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) which allows the former acting principal to sign on official documents. However, the principal has refused to give signatures and has been on leave for two days. The reasons are unclear until she responds,” the official said.
“Our exam got over around the end of April. As per the university rules, we are supposed to receive our results after 45 days of the last examination. It has been over a month but the college has not given us mark sheets. Every day the administration staff cites various reasons saying that the results will be given after two days or a week. It has been delayed because we currently do not have any principal on board,” said a student from the BBA department in the college.
Besides, the students have also informed that apart from the delay in declaration of results, pass out students of the third year are running pillar to post to get their leaving certificate.
Even, a professor from the commerce department on condition of anonymity assured that the things will get in place by Monday or Tuesday.
“The results are out online but they have not received the hard copies because there was no authority to sign those copies. Similar was the situation for the pass out students of the third year. But it is likely to get resolved in a couple of days,” the professor said.
Sakal Times tried to contact the former in-charge principal, Indrayani Jadhav but her family informed that she was unwell and cannot speak. Meanwhile, President of Genba Moze School, Rambhau Moze could not be contacted even after several attempts.
