In a substantial development, the University of Mumbai (MU) has urged colleges across the city to complete the Mumbai University examinations 2021 for PG courses by March 10.

Moreover, along with concluding the examinations, the varsity has also asked the affiliated educational institutions to upload the scores on the university portal within five days. However, several teachers and students have opposed conducting the postgraduate examinations in less than one-and-a-month without finishing the mandatory 90-day teaching period.

However, according to the authorities, the colleges where the admission process has been delayed have been allowed to seek an extension from the varsity. On the other hand, MU has permitted all affiliated colleges except the ones in the city to reopen from February 16 onwards. According to reports, the decision was taken by the University after it received confirmation letters from collectors of Sindhudurg, Ratnagiri, Thane rural, and other districts with MU-affiliated colleges.

Meanwhile, earlier on February 5, MU released a circular which stated the guidelines to be followed in view of the resumption of educational institutes across the state. This comes days after Uday Samant, the state minister of higher and technical education announced that the state universities and colleges can reopen starting February 15 with not more than 50 per cent attendance on campus at any given time. Moreover, the colleges have been asked to give first preference to Ph.D. and research candidates and final year students to attend physical lectures while continuing online lectures for the rest of the batches. According to reports, online classes will have to remain functional for the other batches. Furthermore, the circular states that online teaching-learning arrangements must also continue for international students who cannot join classes physically due to travel and visa restrictions.
