On Thursday, Delhi high court while expressing concern made it clear that it is the duty of Delhi University (DU) only to make available scribes for the visually impaired students of final year, DU for OBE, or online open-book examination.
A bench of justices Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad likewise assessed the mock tests led by DU to see how arranged the varsity is and discovered that under 8% of the all-out enrolled understudies finished the whole procedure. The bench remarked that this is not optimistic, Nothing before us influences us, especially for the visually impaired students, the figures are even more abysmal, after putting up with a note of DU’s estimates that told in the first phase of mock tests, 1.82 lakh enrolled, but a little over 74,000 logged into the system. The university had notified the court before that there are 2.5 lakh registered aspirants.
On its part, DU notified the court that the information submitted before it on the mock test is just for the initial two days and not the whole first stage. The court at that point tried to know when the second period of the mock test will end and was told the booked date is August 4. Subsequent to looking at the figures, the court asked DU to get ready in a tabulated form, information for the two phases of the false tests independently, and submit before the bench.
Delhi high court informed Delhi University that if scribes are not given to the visually impaired final year students of DU then the whole process will be a “mockery”. The court further ordered Delhi University to make a clear picture by August 5, the next date of case hearing.
