Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has written to Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik seeking his intervention in immediate issuance of final or provisional marksheets to students keen to seek postgraduate (PG) admissions outside the State.

In a letter, Pradhan has stated that several students have appeared for the final (6th) semester examination through online mode in first and 2nd week of August, 2021. They have not been provided their 6th semester marksheet while the results are expected to be declared later in the month of September 2021.

Despite repeated pleas to colleges and State education authorities, these students have not been provided provisional marksheets, wrote Pradhan. “The late publication of provisional result/non issuance of marksheet is causing great suffering and jeopardizing the career prospects of our students as they are required to submit their final marksheet, or an attested provisional marksheet, for seeking postgraduate admission in various state and central universities outside Odisha, where the admission procedure has already commenced,” the letter read.

The Union Education Minister further highlighted that many students have already missed admission deadline for Central University of Mizoram and Bharathiar University, and are under severe stress due to fast-approaching deadlines for other institutes such Mumbai University, Kumaon University etc.

“In this context it is also relevant to mention that these students will also be deprived from appearing in any offline university entrance examinations being held outside the State. Keeping in mind career prospects of final semester undergraduate students in Odisha, I seek your urgent attention in undertaking necessary action for immediate issue of final marksheet, or an attested provisional marksheet to them so that they may be able to pursue postgraduate admissions into various state and central Universities in India,” Pradhan wrote in the letter to CM Naveen.
