New Delhi : UGC guidelines are challenged in the Supreme court mandating the conduct of final year exams by universities before September 30. The matter will be heard tomorrow in the supreme court.
In the response to this petition, Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi has directed “all Delhi State Universities to cancel all written online and offline semester examinations including final year exams.”
In the last hearing on July 31, SC has directed all parties to file affidavit latest by August 7. Delhi govt filed its affidavit today demanding for cancellation and Mumbai filed it on Friday demanding for state autonomy.
Delhi government in its affidavit states that on July 11, a decision was taken by the Deputy Chief Minister/Higher and Technical Education Minister of the National Capital Territory of Delhi that all online-offline exams of universities under the state including final year exams would be cancelled in the wake of rising COVID-19 cases.
However, the affidavit notes that some vice-chancellors of certain universities were in favour of wrapping up at least the final semester exams.
“in Delhi’s State universities, best efforts were made to conduct online classes, but the reality of our digital divide is that online classes are not accessible equally by all” Delhi govt stated to SC.
According to recent status, GGSIP University has around 27,000 last year students and are presently formulating component for evaluation to grant imprints to conclusive year students and this is likewise the situation for Delhi Pharmaceutical Science and Research University (DPSRU). The other six colleges have finished the last year Examination by online mode.
