The old college rule stated that students who haven’t cleared their first and second-year papers will not be allowed to move on to the final year.
In September, the students had requested the management to remove the rule completely. The new relaxation norms hadn’t been applied then. Students of the college have alleged that the relaxation norms benefit only 5,000 students, and not the 50,000 students of the university, according to Deccan Herald.
As a protest to make the new norm for all, the students on Wednesday, October 10, had decided to stage an overnight protest.
