New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has directed Delhi University to conduct physical exams for final-year undergraduate students from September 14.
The varsity was directed to work out modalities for stay and transportation of disabled students, who had left the national capital during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, even as it pleaded about ‘too short a time and immense pressure on the available manpower’.
A Bench of Justices Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad on Monday enquired from the counsel for DU, Sachin Datta, the date when the examinations will be conducted physically for those who have not opted for the online mode of OBE examination. To which he told the court that the University would commence the physical examinations only after September 20. However, in the court’s opinion, this date was quite unreasonable.
DU has also been directed to create an email ID, where students applying to foreign Universities can send their details so that the varsity can send a request letter directly to the Universities concerned.
