Considering the number of complaints and issues concerning Delhi University results, the University has decided to mail the results to the parent’s Email ID, effective from next semester, session 2019-20.
Delhi University has always been criticised for its result process. Most of the time, stories of students getting lower marks than they were expecting arises and it always seems disappointing. Also, complaints regarding slow and ineffective University websites are reported every year. This year too, University received several reports related to inefficiency of Delhi University in releasing its semester results.
As a consequence, Mr. Yogesh K. Sharma, Vice Chancellor, Delhi University released an official statement, stating that from session 2019-20 the results will be directly mailed to the parent’s ID. Students will have to update their contact information and verify their parent’s E-mail with the websites of their respective colleges before every semester exam. Talking about the reason behind taking this decision Mr. Sharma told DU Beat “Being one of the most prestigious universities of our country, it is the University’s duty to provide correct results at correct time so this is a step to incapacitate all the errors that revolve around this crucial process.”
Students across colleges have mixed feelings regarding this decision. Some feel that this step would certainly make the process easier and hassle-free, although others believe that errors can continue to occur when results are sent via email. Bhavya Bannerjee, a third year from Daulat Ram College commented “Involving parents in the result process is more stressful and frightening, without ensuring that the results would be fair and error-free. This just becomes another nuisance”. Despite criticism, such revolutionary decisions express that the Delhi University is moving towards a more technologically advanced future.
