Pune, 10th January 2024: Balasaheb Kapadnis, the coordinator of the SET department at Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU), addressed concerns and allegations regarding the Joint Screening Examination of PhD Fellowship conducted by Sarathi, Barti, and Mahajyoti.
Kapadnis stated, “The examination took place today from 10 am to 11 am at various examination centers across Pune, Kolhapur, Nagpur, and Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar cities. Four sets of question papers, labeled A, B, C, and D, were printed for the examination. It’s important to note that these question paper sets were printed confidentially by two different printing presses, leading to potential variations in the printing pattern.”
He added, “The question paper sets were printed following highly confidential procedures and adhering to prescribed security standards. They were then delivered to the respective examination centers in sealed form to maintain the integrity of the examination process.”
Kapadnis emphasized that the entire examination process was conducted transparently at all examination centers, dispelling any concerns regarding the splitting of the paper. He stated, “Therefore, the allegation regarding the leak of the said paper is baseless and there is no truth in it.”
He assured that the university remains committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity and security in its examination processes.
