The Delhi High Court (HC) directed the Delhi University (DU) to declare results of UG and PG courses by October 31 and to upload the mark sheets on its website and no student should be asked to physically come for collecting them.
Earlier, the Delhi High Court had asked the Delhi University to declare students’ OBE results preferably by the first week of October. On Monday, the High Court directed the University to declare the results of post-graduation courses by 31st October 2020, upload mark sheets on its website, and inform students that there will be no need to physically collect them.
It also mandated deadlines for the declaration of results of under graduation courses between 20th October and 31st October 2020 with a maximum buffer of three days from the date of declaration. November 6th is set as the date for the announcement of results for BA Programme courses.
A bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad directed the University that-
- All mark sheets are to be uploaded on Delhi University’s website. No student should be required to physically collect their mark sheet.
- The downloaded mark sheets should not have any footnote that says or suggests that it is subject to physical verification.
- The downloaded mark sheets should be valid for all purposes.
The plea made by Prateek Sharma -student of law- and the National Federation of Blind to set up mechanisms for effective transmission of teaching material and instructions via online teaching methods during the COVID-19 pandemic to visually impaired and specially-abled students was disposed of by the High Court.
The UG and PG results have been a source of great worry for students, especially those who are completely dependent upon the results to secure admission into the varsity.
