The DU students will be receiving the hard copy of their degrees free of cost from the university, as notified by the Delhi University. These degrees will be received by DU students who have graduated from various colleges affiliated with them.
Although, in order to issue college digital degrees to the students, the university has decided to charge Rs 750 for them. The students have opposed this move of Delhi University and have asked for no fee to be charged in lieu of issuance of the college degrees. Students, however, would have to pay the fixed amount for receiving digital degrees.
An online portal has been launched by the university for all DU students who have not yet received their graduation degrees. Digital degrees and certificates are being issued to the students through this portal. Delhi University has also started the printing of degrees along with this.
In the minds of students, there is also a dilemma that on getting the digital degrees, the copy of the printed degree would no longer be made available as in the past.
DS Rawat, Dean (Examinations), DU, said that issuing digital was achieved by teamwork since it was a major effort. On the day of DU’s 97th convocation, the digital degrees were issued to students.
It takes time to issue a printed degree, so the university had issued digital degrees to all the students, according to the Delhi University. The students can download the digital degree if they wish, by paying a fee. A hard copy of their degrees will also be given to all the students. For acquiring a hard copy of degrees, there is no money charge. A printed degree will also be received by those who have received digital degrees.
The decision of Delhi University to charge a fee of Rs 750 for a digital degree, is being opposed by NSUI (National Students’ Union of India). The university administration has been requested by the NSUI to immediately withdraw this fee.
Since 2021, the Delhi University has been issuing digital degrees to students. Any student would receive his/her degree through an online link under this. A fee of Rs 750 would have to be paid by students who have graduated in the academic year 2020-21, in order to download the digital degree.
Mohammad Ali, NSUI National Media Co-in charge said that apart from that, a big error had come to the fore in the degrees of the students of Delhi School of Journalism. The administration has been given a five-year Integrated Program degree which should have been given after 5 years instead of granting a graduate degree to students after three years.
