Officials from University of Mumbai (MU) confirmed that 173 results , including third-year BSc (semesters 5 and 6), were declared on July 31. Results of nearly 304 exams are still pending. Officials, however, said all the pending results will be declared by August 5.
“Pending assessment should be cleared soon and we should be able to declare all results by August 5. Close to 100 results should be out within one day,” said MA Khan, registrar, MU.
With the MU racing against time to declare results before the Monday deadline, the officials rescheduled their meetings to finalise its perspective plan for the next academic year. This plan is an annual exercise to chart out future growth of the university. It provides details about prospective colleges for different regions under varsity’s jurisdiction.

The state had asked the public varsities to submit their respective plans by July 31, which was also the deadline set by the governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao for declaring all the results. The varsity officials have prepared a draft of the perspective plan, but need approval from its three governing bodies — senate, management council and academic council. The varsity had scheduled meetings of the governing bodies on Monday, but rescheduled them to concentrate on the evaluation work.
Khan told HT that the university received a call from the governor’s office on Monday office, advising them to call off the meetings for the time being. “He asked us to take an extension from the state government to submit the perspective plan. For now, we’ve been asked to focus on completing assessment work,” said Khan.
The state government on the other hand is ready to wait for a few more days to receive the varisty’s perspective plan. “Once plans from all the state universities are in, we will table them before Maharashtra Authority for Higher Education (MAHED). After receiving its approval, the universities can invite proposals for new colleges and courses,” said Siddharth Kharat, joint secretary, state higher and technical education department.
Maharashtra Public Universities Act 2016, requires the varsities to accept the proposals till September 31. According to Anil Patil, director of academic planning at MU, the current perspective plan provides long-term and short-term expansion targets for the university. “The plan consists of three parts: a vision document, a five-year plan and an annual plan,” he said.
