The management council of the Mumbai University today decided to slash by 50 per cent the charges for revaluation and photocopy of answer-sheets.
The decision was taken to facilitate the students, the university said in a statement.
"Those who have cleared the first semester of the 2017 academic year, will get the benefit of the revised rates," it said.
The university will now charge Rs 250 for revaluation, while Rs 50 for obtaining a photocopy of the answer sheet, the communication stated.
The varsity has already shifted to online assessment of answer-sheets, which has brought down the overall expenditure on assessment. Therefore, the administration decided to pass on the benefits.
"Charges for these two key services have been slashed by 50 per cent. The students would now get the answer-sheets on their e-mail, which will save the paper cost for the varsity," the statement said.
