K.P.B. Hinduja College of Commerce in Charni Road is again in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The college failed to send internal examination marks of 39 students appearing for First-Year Masters of Commerce (MCom) to Mumbai University (MU).  This has resulted in the latter imposing a fine of ₹19,500. 

The First Semester examination for MCom students was held in January 2020 and the results were declared on February 14. However, Hinduja college submitted the marks of the students on February 24 wherein the students were either wrongfully marked absent for certain exams or given wrong marks.

Talking about the same, Principal of Hinduja College Minu Madlani stated that there was some error in the system and the college officials have now rectified it. According to the resolution passed by the MU Board of Examinations (BoE) in October 2015, if a college submits internal marks after the results are announced then they are fined ₹500 per student whose marks they failed to submit. Therefore, for 39 students, Hinduja college has to pay a fine of ₹19,500. 

In January 2020, Hinduja college did not send the practical examination marks of TYBMM students to Mumbai University, which resulted in the students being marked as 'failed'. The third-year BMM students have to choose Journalism or Advertising as their specialisation and have one practical subject and five theory subjects. For Journalism students, the practical subject is Newspaper and Magazine making, whereas, in Advertising, the practical subject is Design for advertising. 

These two practical subjects are assessed by an external examiner. Hinduja College failed to submit these marks to Mumbai University which resulted in many students being declared as 'failed'. The rectification of marks is now underway and students will be informed of their new results soon.
