University Grants Commission (UGC):
Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal on Wednesday advised the University Grants Commission (UGC) to revise the guidelines it had earlier issued with regards to the examinations and academic calendar. The UGC last month had issued guidelines during the second phase of the coronavirus-induced lockdown on the Examinations and Academic Calendar, recommending the admission process be started from August 1-31.
The Delhi University (DU) had said examinations for final year postgraduate and undergraduate students, including those for students registered with the School of Open Learning (SOL) and Non Collegiate Women Education Board (NCWEB) will begin from July 1 in Open Book Examination (OBE) mode. This will also be revisited by the UGC.
Pokhriyal in a tweet said he has advised the UGC to revisit the guidelines issued earlier for intermediate and Terminal Semester examinations and academic calendar. “The foundation for revisited guidelines shall be health and safety students, teachers and staff,” he added.
Pokriyal’s advisory to the UGC. “The DUTA has been opposing Delhi University’s decision to hold OBE as it is discriminatory towards a large section of students and erodes the sanctity of the examination process,” it said in a statement. “The DUTA’s position stands vindicated with this announcement and is a victory of the collective efforts of students and teachers who have been protesting against the OBE.”
