The University of Delhi informed Delhi High Court on Tuesday that the University will declare the pending OBE results for various undergraduate and postgraduate courses by 30th November. As per the reports, Delhi University is under obligation to declare the remaining OBE results by 30th November, or else the University’s neck will be on board.
In response to a claim alleging that the University has violated Delhi HC’s order when DU had undertaken to declare OBE results by 31st October. A two-tier bench comprising Justice Subramonium Prasad and Justice Hima Kohli stated that the remaining OBE results of various undergraduate and postgraduate courses shall be declared by 30th November.
The justice bench postponed the order waiting for updated guidelines and instructions of Delhi University counsel Mohinder Rupal. The bench listed the ongoing matter for the next hearing on 2nd December by stating that DU’s neck is already on board. Delhi HC further raised questions over filing the petition in a disposed manner.
HC had earlier disposed-off two petitions filed by National Federation of Blind and DU law student Prateek Sharma demanding an effective mechanism for providing information and study material for visually impaired students during the covid-19 pandemic.
DU Violated Delhi Court’s order to declare OBE results by 31st Oct
The court further questioned petitioner Prateek Sharma as to why he has applied to an already existing matter. The bench asked to present an answer on the maintainability of the application and not on merits. We have qualms on entertaining an application in a disposed-off matter, the bench said.
The petitioner claimed that the Delhi University has violated the court’s order issued on 12th October where the University itself undertook to declare the results before October 31st. On 12th October, the high court further instructed University to upload the mark sheets on the official website, and further, no student should be asked to visit University for collecting the mark sheet.
The Delhi HC had earlier asked the University of Delhi and its examination branch to accelerate the evaluation process of online OBE exams and declare the results online by the first week of October.
