Considering the welfare of STES students, the Academic Council decided to postpone the in-semester examination which was to be held on March 5 and will be now held after the theory examination is over. 

As reported earlier by Sakal Times, students are suffering academic loss due to no regular lectures and practicals being conducted because of the ongoing protest against the Sinhgad institute management. 

For over three months, professors of STES have been staging several protests on the issue of pending salaries of 15 months. Recently, Vice-Chancellor of SPPU, Nitin Karmalkar also came out in support of the professors and students assuring that the varsity will take necessary action against the educational institute management.
