FROM A REPORTER
SHILLONG, Nov 10: The Students Bar Association (SBA) of Shillong Law College has set a 15-day deadline to North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) to fulfil their three point demands concerning the students’ rights of LLB students.
“We want the NEHU authorities to give us a written assurance on our demands because in the past. However, till date nothing has been done,” Peter A Dohkrut president SBA told reporter here on Thursday.
The three-point demand made by the SBA are timely evaluation of examition papers and timely publication of results, proper evaluation of exam papers and introduction of interl assessment marls similar to the one students in NEHU are receiving.
He said the SBA wants to stand for the rights of the three years LLB students in Meghalaya including those studying in Jowai Law College, Tura and Shillong.
“As per the rules of all university in the country timely publication of the results should be within 45 days but just because we are an affiliated college does not mean that NEHU should declare our results after six or eight months,” he said.
The SBA urged NEHU authorities to conduct proper evaluation of papers and publication of results should be done within two months.
Alleging that the evaluation of papers especially awarding of marks was found to be not up to the mark, he said, “In 2015 batch, 6 semester students completed their exams, but when they get their results, we found that 99.8 per cent of the students failed, except two students.”
In this connection, he informed that the students had filed an individual representation and an RTI in which it revealed that the awarding of marks were uniform.
