To avoid delays in issuing hall tickets to final year students, the University of Mumbai has decided to allot hall tickets online this year. It will be the college’s responsibility to submit the student’s examination forms online on the varsity’s digital portal.

This is the first time that the University will provide online hall tickets to collegians. This facility will be extended to more than 500 Commerce, Arts and Science colleges, affiliated to the varsity. Last year, around 1, 45,000 students appeared for final year examinations from these three streams.
According to a senior official from the varsity, “This decision has been taken to avoid a delay in issuing hall tickets. Generally, mistakes creep into the hall tickets because they are issued in haste. So this time, the varsity decided to get online and save time.
Currently, the entire application procedure is manual. Students fill the examination form and submit it to the varsity. The varsity scrutinises this form and issues the hall ticket. Once the procedure becomes online, it easy for the college and the students. If students spot any mistakes in the hall ticket, they can be rectified immediately.
“Last year, the varsity created a digital portal, and each college was given a separate login ID. Once the college submits the students’ data online, we can issue the hall tickets and make them available online. Once the submission is online, we can easily correct mistakes,” said Controller of Examination Vilas Shinde of the University of Mumbai.
“Most of the colleges in the city have the online facility. We also are going to organise a training workshop for colleges next month at the Kalina campus. The colleges can attend this workshop and if they have any query we will resolve it. From next year, this facility will be allotted across the sections. However, this time, it will be only be limited to colleges with three streams only,” Shinde added.
