The DU (Delhi University) has been directed by the Delhi High Court to file an affidavit which should have the details of the undergraduate exams of the final year students. This exam has been postponed from July 10 to beyond August 15 by the University.
The High court has also asked DU to explain in the affidavit the proposal to conduct the exams. Whether the exams will be online, offline, or both modes. Along with this, the complete date-sheet has to be made available so that the students have clarity.
A bench of Justices Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad said that all of us have gone through the process of examination which is nerve-racking for all the students. It is more so visible because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Senior advocate Sachin Dutta is representing the DU. The prayer of Sachin Datta to have some time to formulate a new plan for the conduct of examinations according to the latest guidelines issued by the UGC has been granted by the Court.
Around 2.45 lakh candidates will be appearing for the online examinations. Out of these candidates, 1.86 lakh students belong to Delhi while the others are from outside.
The affidavit is to be filed by the University by July 13. The matter has been listed for further hearing on July 14.
