For Vnsgu, I In Fir Stands For ‘investigation’ Not ‘info’! | Surat News – Times of India

Surat: The Veer Narmad South Gujarat University (VNSGU) has given a new twist to Indian law, sections and names in its LLB exam papers.
Thus, I in FIR is ‘First Investigation Report’ for the varsity and not ‘Information’ as is known to all. Further, the university also believes that the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) comprises 491 sections, though the existing CrPC has only 484 sections! These are just a few of the errors in the five question papers of the varsity’s semester IV exam of LLB in the multiple choice questions (MCQ) format test that was held in February 2022.
According to the complaints and the RTIs that were filed by the students, it has been alleged that there were mistakes in 76 questions in five question papers. The students demanded to be given these extra marks for the errors. After a lot of persuasion, VNSGU finally accepted its fault and revised the students’ results. Around 1,200 students were given new marksheets.
Nirav Makwana, an LLB student told TOI, “Those who have a basic understanding of law know about the full form of FIR. I came to know about the university’s mistake only when I examined my answer book secured through RTI.”
He further said that the question about section 491 in CrPC was from the Act that was formed in 1889 and replaced by a new Act in 1973-74. “There is no section 491 in the existing CrPC. The question was asked from the Act that has been made obsolete,” Makwana added.
“The question papers and answer keys were issued by a private agency.” said Vimal Pandya, in-charge dean, faculty of law, adding that teachers and university officials do not interfere in order to maintain secrecy in the examination process. “The university is inquiring into the issue and things will be clear,” he added.
