Partial correction of stand by the Pune University after issue of legal notice
Pune University Introduced ordinance no. 182 in 2009 for providing zerox copies of answersheets ; the ordinance had many provisions which were contravening to the RTI Act ; like Max. 3 subjects answerbooks zerox will be given ; Revaluated answersheets zerox will not be given ; it will take 45 days to give xerox copies of answer sheets ; students should apply for zerox copies in 10 days time from date of declaration of results etc.
In April 2013 our Sajag Nagrik Manch sent a legal notice to Pune University over this issue; and finally recently Pune University scrapped the ordinance 182 and introduced a new circular 239 of 2013. This circular says that now students can get xerox copies of all types of papers including revaluated answer sheets; there is no restriction on no. of answer sheets student can ask for; answer sheets zerox will be given in just 15 days time etc.
So this proved that serving legal notice also can make things happen.
Still there are two contravening provisions in new circular like:-
1. Students should apply for zerox copies in 10 days time from date of declaration of results
2. "The examinee shall be sole custodian of the photocopies so supplied and shall not transfer the same to anybody for any purpose; whatsoever. The examinee shall further refrain himself from putting such photocopies to any misuse that might geopardise the reputation of the university.
I am going ahead to putforth section 18 complaint against Pune university over this.
