The DU released about one lakh 80 thousand digital degrees on the day of the 97th convocation. Students will have to pay Rs 750 to get a digital degree, but now Delhi University’s printed degree will be given free.
Students have a dilemma that if a digital degree is collected then a copy of the printed degree that was recently available will not be accessible. In this regard, examination professor DS Rawat said that granting digital degrees was a major effort.
It was completely teamwork and was provided to all the students on the day of the convocation. Sometimes it takes time to issue a printed degree so DU has allocated a digital degree.
If students need the degree immediately then, they can download the degree by paying it in due course. But in the future, the printed degree will also be provided to all students through an offline medium. There is no payment for that. Those who have got digital degrees will also receive a printed degree.
Resisting fee for digital degree: Students of the National Students Union of India have deterred taking Rs 750 for a digital degree from DU. Students say that we mandate the university administration to withdraw this fee immediately. The University of Delhi had said to give digital degrees to students from this year.
Under this, any student can get his degree through an online link, but when undergraduate students try to download a digital degree in 2020-21, they are being asked for Rs 750.
NSUI leader Mohammad Ali says that money is being taken for all facilities here. Earlier students used to get offline degrees, for which no fee was to be paid. Then why DU is asking for Rs 750 this time for the digital degree.
