The 109thÂ Convocation of Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) is scheduled for May 25. The Chancellor of the Universities in Maharashtra and Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has finalised the date of the Convocation.
The students of the academic session 2021-22 and the previous two academic years, will be conferred degrees during the Convocation. The earlier two years were affected by Covid 19 pandemic and Convocations could not be conducted.
Besides Chancellor Koshyari, efforts are being made to invite the Chairman of the Unversity Grants Commission Prof Jagadesh Kumar Mamidala. Maharashtra Minister for High Education Uday Samant may also be invited, the sources at the university stated. Although the University authorities and the Chancellor are interested in inviting an academician for the event, ministers may pressurise the University for inviting prominent politician.
