"Mostly all results will be declared by 5 August. The process of declaring results is on continually," university Registrar AM Khan told PTI.

"So far, results of 173 courses have been declared. Around 90,000 answer sheets are yet to be evaluated," Khan said.

The bulk of pending answer sheets, belong to the commerce faculty, while the assessment of science, technology and management is nearly complete.

Meanwhile, university professor Neeraj Hatekar said he is quitting in the backdrop of the current situation in the university.

In a Facebook post, he wrote that whatever is happening at the Mumbai University is deeply distressing and the time has come, for those who feel for the university, to come together and act. The time for silence is over, he wrote.

"I realise that I will be more effective in working towards the betterment of the university by fighting for it from outside rather than being part of a hopeless, spineless system led by stooges who only understand expediency of survival," Hatekar said.

"I feel uncomfortable that earning my daily sustenance involves deference to such a system," he said.
