SPPU’s Batch of 2020 Waits for Degree Certificates
SPPU has not been able to provide the degree certificates to students who passed out in October 2020, who during a regular year would have passed out in May 2020 due to the delay in the term-end examination and the postponement of the convocation ceremony. Many private universities held online convocations and sent the degree certificates to their students’ homes via the department of posts. But the Maharashtra Public Universities Act is binding and all state universities must hold an official convocation ceremony to award the degree certificate. The lack of the degree certificate has hampered many students, especially those planning to study abroad.
