A total of 100 students out of almost 217, from Aayojan School of Architecture and Design, near village Warawadi, Purandar of Pune district have encountered an issue with their results, wherein they were marked absent for a subject. The result declared them as failed because of this goof up.

The incident came to light after a similar case emerged at the MIT College of Engineering, wherein 11 students of Information Technology were marked absent for an elective,Mobile Computing, following which a letter was sent by the college authorities to Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU), for correction of the error.

However, unlike them, the college authorities ofAayojan School of Architecture and Design, have failed to take cognisance of the incident.

Despite several attempts, the authorities refrained from acknowledging the issue wherein 100 students have been marked absent for the subject Physical Education in their final marksheet. The students were of the 2015-2017 batch.

Stating that the negligence was from the college’s part, SPPU Controller of Examination. Dr Ashok Chavan said, “The results are first uploaded by the colleges, which the University collates and publishes. This college did a mistake by uploading the results as per the roll numbers, and not as per the seat numbers, as they should have done. This has created the problem as per my knowledge. We will further look into the matter and do the needful.”

Although the results of the students published online, clearly show 100 absentees, Anand Ukidve, the principal of the college, denying knowledge of the matter, stated, “I do not know anything about this discrepancy. The students have not come to me, so I do not wish to divulge anything. If need be, we will take care of it.”
