Around 88,000 students from the university and its affiliated colleges will be affected as a result.
Exams were supposed to be held in 476 exam centres on Friday. While third year BA and some of the masters' exams had already begun on March 25, third year BCom exams were scheduled to start from Friday.
The university will release the revised dates soon. Most college teachers will be unavailable for supervision work on these days as the Election Commission will be holding training camps for the staff.
The Bombay University and College Teachers' Union (BUCTU) had asked the university to intervene in the matter as most teachers were assigned election duty which they thought would affect the exams.
