The matter of the final year exams of DU (Delhi University) was in the court for the hearing. Today, the Delhi High Court has asked the Central Government if it can ensure that all the 12,000 CSCs which were asked to help out the students of Delhi University in the conduct of online OBE, and are currently dormant will become operational within one week.
Kapil Sibal has complained today that there is a non-availability of scribes for the PwD (persons with disability) students.
The court suggested that those students who cannot appear for exams now, cam take physical exams later on.
Kapil Sibal has also raised the question of those students who are in villages. He has said that how can such students sit for exams later?
The Court has asked the Center to address the issue of the non-availability of scribes for the PwD students who are willing to take online exams. There is non-availability of the internet, adequate IT infrastructure, and electricity at the various CSCs which were roped in to conduct the online open book examinations of OBE.
The Central government has been asked by the Court to file an affidavit in this regard.
The matter is to be heard next, on July 22.
