Delhi University officials on 11th February released a notice that the varsity would declare offline exams for the students. This information on offline exams is valid for the students who are going to appear for their semester exams in May.
So, DU students objected to the same and moved to Delhi High Court. The petition of DU students states that the varsity should hold exams in online mode only. They said that even after the release of notice for offline exams,
Delhi University held the classes in online mode. Students received class links in respective groups and they were asked to join the classes in online mode only. Advocate Ajay Kumar Srivastava is running this case for DU students.
In Delhi High Court, he said that the Coronavirus cases are increasing rapidly in the national capital again. So, DU officials must reconsider this decision of holding semester exams in offline mode.
The plea of DU students further stated that a major population of DU students are from different states. It is not safe for them to have a conveyance and reach the examination center to appear for exams. Students have appeared for a larger proportion of their classes in online mode only.
So, this decision cannot compel them to appear for exams in offline mode. Because of the sudden increase in cases, Delhi University will regulate the inaugural function in online mode. So, they must reconsider this decision of holding offline exams for DU students in May. Now, the bench of Justice Rekha Palli would hear the case on Friday.
