Curious Case Of RTI Against Gujarat Technological University


RAJKOT: Vivek Sancheti, a student of computer engineering at Atmiya Institute of Technology and Science (AITS), was stunned when Gujarat Technological University failed him in the subject of ‘Object Orienting Programming-Java paper’. Sancheti, 21, wanted a copy of the evaluated answer sheet, claiming that he had attempted most of the questions correctly.

I Had got backlog (KT) in 5th SEM Object Orienting Programming-Java paper.I Had contacted VC of GTU and said him that this is literally a mistake. Paper was damn easy and I can say i will surely cross 40+ out of 70. But VC (Akshay Agarwal) literally showed his hypocrisy. He said sorry I cant help. He literally pleaded my son I am even unable to manage results in time (I have voice recording) how can I support Reassessment in the system?Gosh! if you are not able to manage the University then either you quite or close the university. How can you play with thousands of students career?

Then Shailendrasinh Jadeja Sir (thanks a lot sir) helped me, he introduced me to RTI.

Filed RTI 1 – Requesting Info related to examination and what is the procedure for filing Paper Reassessment request in GTU as GTU doesnt have any such provision. They only support marks total rechecking that too for 250rs.

No response. 1 month gone.

Filed RTI 2: Attaching Supreme Court of India’s similar case report. Got response within 20 days. Was invited to GTU for viewing my paper. They showed me paper denied to reassess it and even denied to provide me the xerox copy of my paper.
(I showed them the supreme court of India’s case report. Which clearly mentioned that University needs to show and provide xerox copy of paper of exams taken max 11 years ago from the date of request made.)

Paper was checked bluntly. Was given 16 marks. No reasons why the hell last 5 answers where striked out and given zero. They where all simple inheritance problem. When I said please compare this with the book but no proper reply. Only one response : you filed RTI we showed you paper now get lost!

GTU staff literally behaved illiterate I do have voice recording of all their dumb arguments.

Filed RTI Complaint to Gujarat Mahiti Ayog : Stating the whole issue. They have responded after 2 years of the Case. Asking GTU to respond. Hope GTU will respond now.

Yes RTI system in Gujarat is super fast

(Note: I have cleared the Java paper (remedial) and have passed BE with distinction 8.02/10 CPI)

And @VC sir if you remember me you had told me “tum log padthe nahi ho aur humein doshi therate ho”, I am the same student whom you have awarded once and have also nominated for lt. Dewang Mehta IT award.

I will not stop this fight for sure. May it take years. Will surely remove one extra semester grade report from my collection “Added by Vivek Sancheti”

  3. Same case with me, now I’m in 8th sem. BE electrical. Once again it shocked me of 5th sem of subject Elements of electrical design(EED), I attempted 9 questions out of 10 which was really good paper. Now i’m really in deep frustration now only way that I can apply for reassessment.
    Please somebody help me what to do?

    • Ask anybody in your city that where you can get Stamp paper of Rs: 20/-? Fill your address and details about your subject code, seat no. , enrollment no. . Write few lines claiming to get photocopy of your paper. After sometimes you will get reply letter from gtu which you have to send back demand draft or postal order of Rs: 120 /- then after some days you will get your photocopy. It is lengthy process better if you can go to gtu and meet Public information officer. Here you can get your photocopy in short time.

  4. Finally I got my RTI’s photo copy in my hand . How it had checked? Only gave me 16 marks which is unpair that I can say 100%. Only 3 marks for detail explanation out of 7 marks and 3 more answers have given zero mark which was my good attempt. Actually I’m very far away to Gujarat so it is difficult to prove their injustices. But hope God is there to see them.
