THE UNIVERSITY of Mumbai has, for the third time, failed to appoint a Controller of Examinations (CoE). While 10 candidates were interviewed Wednesday by a committee headed by Vice-Chancellor Sanjay Deshmukh, none of them were selected for the post.
While sources in the university said none of the candidates was suitable for the post, no official reason has been cited. Officials said Deepak Wasave, who is currently holding the post as an in-charge, will continue till the university finds a full-time official.

This is the third time in a year that the university called for applications. The post was held by Dinesh Bonde, until he quit in August 2015.
In the earlier two attempts, the process had been called off owing to confusion over the tenure of the appointee. As the proposed Maharashtra Public Universities Bill does not recognise the post, it may be dissolved once the Bill is passed.
