Nagpur Universitys examination section works below huge burden

The Nagpur University's examination section, already facing the warmth over a series of paper leaks initial exposed by TOI, is showing signs of crumbling below the massive pressure from mushrooming faculties and workers shortage. some of years ago, the department was the pride for the university and had got accolades from all quarters for declaring ends up in fast time.
