Mumbai University Result 2017 will be declared by September 6. After facing flack for the delay in the declaration of Mumbai University Result 2017 for undergraduate programmes, the University of Mumbai has informed the Bombay High Court that it is now aiming to complete the assessment of answer-sheets and upload all results of undergraduate exams on its website by September 6. Once announced, Mumbai University Result 2017 will be made available on the official website of university at mu.ac.in.

Interestingly, this the the sixth time, when the Mumbai University has made the declaration that it will release result by a certain date. Last time it was supposed to announce the results by July 31 but missed it. In fact, taking the serious note on the delays in the declaration of the results by the University of Mumbai, the Governor of Maharashtra CH Vidyasagar Rao had asked the university administration to declare results of all courses by 31st July 2017. The Governor asked Vice-Chancellor of the University Dr Sanjay Deshmukh to declare all courses’ result by 31st July 2017 and to submit a detailed in accordance with the provisions of Section 89 of Maharashtra Public Universities Act, explaining the strategy and road map for a declaration of results on time, but university failed to declare the results.

Earlier on August 28, It had declared the results for three year Bachelors of Commerce courses, even for that students had to face lot of problem as the website went down and was not accessible for some time.

Mumbai University’s counsel Rui Rodrigues while talking about the delay in results announcement accelerating the assessment of the results told the HC that the “Ganpati festival and Tuesday’s deluge” in the megapolis set its assessment process back by a further couple of days. He further said that the university had completed the assessment and declared results for all the three and five year LLB courses. He added, “153 exams conducted for various Arts courses, results for 151 had been declared, of the 47 exams for various courses offered for the BSc degree, results for 43 had been declared, and for the 50 exams conducted for BCom courses, results for 30 exams had been declared.” However, these results are yet to be uploaded on the official website of the varsity.

A bench consisting of justices Anoop V Mohta and Bharati Dangre directed the state Common Entrance Test (CET) cell to extend the deadline for applying to the university’s three years courses to September 6.

While talking about the Mumbai rains that brought the city to a halt, Rodrigues said, “The heavy rains on Tuesday resulted in power outages and disrupted Internet connectivity because of which our server crashed and the results could not be uploaded. However, we have outsourced the work to another server and results should be declared by this evening.”

“We have also decided to send the complete Gazette or broadsheet containing the marks for all students to respective colleges so that they can check their marks from the college bulletin boards,” he added.

The Common Entrance Test (CET) cell had earlier extended its August 31 deadline to September 5, and today, its counsel told the court that any “further extension of the deadline will be difficult”.
