Delhi High Court has asked the Delhi University to submit an affidavit within five days in the DU OBE (open book exam) matter. The High Court has asked Delhi University to state the courses of which results have been declared and the courses for which the results are not yet released. Furthermore, the matter is getting out of hand without HC’s supervision as the University of Delhi has not yet declared the results for exams conducted in August.
The Delhi High Court questioned Delhi University’s statement concluded in September stating that the OBE results will be declared by October end. However, the court earlier asked the University to declare the results by the first week of October.
HC asserted that due to delay in the release of results, the students should not confront any difficulty in taking admission in other Universities. However, in the High Court, the University said that it has limited resources and in such an extraordinary situation, the University will not be able to release the results of final year students before October end.
DU OBE Results were to be released by October
Explaining that on the result of the recently conducted online examinations of Delhi University, the High Court had directed that DU to instruct all its colleges that all answer sheets should be evaluated at the earliest. Try to release the final year results of the students till the first week of October, so that students do not have to face further delays in taking admission.
The High Court had already asked the UGC to issue an advisory and state that this time the exam was delayed due to corona infection. Hence the provisional results and admissions will be done in the new year, and the new class will be delayed. Also, tell that the cut-off list will also be delayed. Because of this, students should not insist on provisional results and other things.
At present, the court has asked Delhi University in this matter to give an affidavit within five days stating the results of which courses are still pending. HC tells DU that the students are very upset due to not getting the results till the middle of November.
