Delhi University today informed the Delhi High Court that it has chosen to delay its last year assessment which was scheduled to begin from July 10. In a gathering which was directed late the previous night, it was chosen to delay the assessment till after August 15, Delhi University said.
The Court was hearing a clump of petitions documented by a few last year undergraduate students of Delhi University. The Petitions concern the conduction of online open-book assessments for last year’s undergraduate students. The Central Government educated the Court that it has given a request, giving time till September 30, to colleges to mandatorily direct their last year assessments. Univerisity Grants Commission expressed that it would advance a “Standard Operating Procedure” (SOP) to all schools today in regard of the conduction of assessments and included that the universities would be given time till September 30.
It was featured that the postponement in conduction of assessment would adversely affect the business prospects as well as admission to outside colleges. It was likewise put forth that the university’s direction was totally in opposition to the law as none of these choices were taken by the scholastic committee as commanded under the rules of DU. The Court commented the reason for deferment couldn’t be the Central Government or UGC’s requests as neither of them requested that varsities do not lead assessment or delay them.
Delhi University expressed that no malefice expectations could be credited to it and the choice was taken considering the warnings and requests from Central Government and UGC. In the wake of hearing the gatherings, the Court esteemed it proper to send the petitions to the Division Bench which is hearing another appeal concerning the conduction of Online Open Book Examination for PWD classification understudies. The Court noticed that issue of delay of assessment was at such a point before the Division Bench.
