Mumbai University has been infamous for its mismanagement and inability to cope up with the examinations. In an addition to the list, Mumbai University has seen a sudden spike in the number of revaluation applications for the academic year 2017-18. The information was received after a Right To Information (RTI) application was filed for the same and therefore, it raises questions against the paper checking process. 

Revaluation is a facility introduced by the University for students who are dissatisfied with their score in an examination or for students who have failed in an examination. However, in order to receive the benefit of the procedure, the students are obliged to pay a specific amount of money to the University as 'Revaluation Fees', after which the answer sheet is re-checked by the University.

Shoumitkumar Salunkhe had asked for information of the number of revaluation applications received between June 2017 and November 2018. After which, he learned that as compared to the applications that were received during October 2017 (60,712 applications), the applications received during May 2018 (76,828 applications) had exponentially increased. And it was crystal clear that the number of applications was growing every day.

However, clarifying on the matter, a University official stated that the increase in the number of revaluation applications is a result of University’s decision to reduce the fee to ₹250 from ₹500. He stated that due to this, the students have been active in demanding revaluation as the prices are low.
