DIBRUGARH, May 13 � The Students Federation of India (SFI) has threatened to gherao the administrative building of Dibrugarh University from tomorrow following failure of the varsity authorities to conduct examination for students having �backs� in different subjects and for alleged haphazard management of the semester system.
Earlier, the Chatra Mukti Sangram Samiti (CMSS) also apprised the Vice Chancellor about the alleged mismanagement of the semester system.
The SFI said that the university authorities adopted the semester system without having a proper infrastructure in place. �The faculty-student ratio is absolutely not proportionate here. The delay in holding exams for the �back� subjects and the delay in declaration of results is causing immense problems to students. Some 2,000 students have failed to graduate due to delay in holding exams for the �back� subjects,� said Saurav Gogoi, vice president, State committee, SFI.
According to the UGC and semester system rules, exams for the �back� subjects must be conducted within 45 days after the declaration of results. But exams have been delayed, the students said.
The SFI leaders said that they had submitted a memorandum to the Vice Chancellor on April 23, requesting the authorities to conduct the exams for the �back� subjects on time and improve the infrastructure for smooth implementation of the semester system. But, they said the authorities failed to respond despite seeking time to reply.
