“Almost 75 per cent papers’ evaluation has already been done. The entire process will be completed within next 15 days following which we will declare the results. As most of the faculty retired in the recent times, we faced problem in getting cometent people for evaluation of papers,” said BPUT Registrar Himanshu Sekhar Behera.
