On 3rd June 2021, students from 56 college units of the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), Delhi submitted a memorandum to the principals of various colleges in Delhi University, requesting an extension in the deadline for submission of assignments, along with other demands. The memorandum highlighted various concerns of the students and sought redressal for the same from the authorities at the earliest, according to a statement.
An extension in the deadline of assignment-based evaluation (ABE) for the second-year students who could not submit the work due to adversities of the pandemic was listed among the prime demands by the college units. 10 major concerns were highlighted in the document, including issues such as return of examination fee, reduction of college fees for resources not used by the students, providing e-library facilities, no evaluation of marks based on online attendance and the sanction of fee to the writers of visually-impaired students studying in the university.
These demands were put forward as a result of the discussions held with college students in the last 3 days, where they shared their plight, brought on by the pandemic. A key demand was the availability of enough Nodal officers for OBE from 7th June 2021 and the request of special arrangements for those facing difficulties during the process.
In his official statement, Delhi State Secretary Sidharth Yadav said, “ABVP is concerned with every student’s problems and is committed to make sure that their problems are solved by the University administration making sure that the future of any student is not played with.” He also emphasized the support of ABVP to the student body. “The students must take their examination without any worries. ABVP activists across colleges are working to remove any obstacle and make the process friendly.”
