Around 90,000 answer sheets are yet to be evaluated,” Khan said.

The bulk of pending answer sheets, belong to the commerce faculty, while the assessment of science, technology and management is nearly complete, with just a few thousand papers remaining.

Meanwhile, university professor Neeraj Hatekar said he is quitting in the backdrop of current situation in the university.

In a Facebook post, he wrote that whatever is happening at the Mumbai University is deeply distressing and the time has come, for those who feel for the university, to come together and act. The time for silence is over, he wrote.

“I realise that I will be more effective in working towards the betterment of the university fighting for it from the outside than being a part of a hopeless, spineless system led by stooges who only understand expediency of survival.

“I feel uncomfortable that earning my daily sustenance involves deference to such a system,” Hatekar said.
