Delhi High Court on Thursday directed university of Delhi to immediately take steps to issue online degree, Certificates and Mark sheets.
Justice Pratibha singh told examination dean, vinay gupta that why student’s need to wait for degrees for more than 2 years now especially doctors, who are already helping people in these tough times.
Examination dean replied that due to lack of paper and non continuation of the contract with the vendor there is a slighter delay in awarding degrees.
“Since the NAD is a unique feature and act as a national depository for academic records, DU should utilise it effectively and take immediate steps to transfer all existing data about students to NAD,” the judge said.
Delhi High Court also requested DU to come up with a quick solution within next 4 days. Vinay Gupta have also said that the data has already been submitted to NDA.
Court asked DU to create an online system like other universities have in order to award online degrees with digital signatures.
The next hearing date will be on 4th August, 2020
The DU officials discussed he matter and informed court that they are going to renew the contract for a shorter period to award degrees. The printing will be done from 3 august, not before that.
Justice pratibha clearly stated that there is no point for doctors coming to the court because of carelessness of such a prestigious university. Court have asked DU to award online degrees and close this matter before next hearing.
