On Monday, Delhi High Court has directed the Delhi University to declare results of all the post-graduate courses by October 31 and also asked to upload the marksheets on its website. There is no need for any student to physically come to collect marksheets.
The high court has also fixed various deadlines for the results announcement of undergraduate courses, between October 20 to 31 with a buffer of maximum of three days from the date fixed.
For BA (prog) courses, the results would be announced on November 6, it said.
A bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad also told the varsity to make sure that results and marksheets are uploaded on its website and the students are not required to go to the college to physically collect it.
The bench also notified that the marksheets downloaded from the website must not carry any footnote that it is subject to physical verification. Thus, marksheets downloaded from the website shall be valid for all purposes, it said.
The high court disposed of two pleas by law student Prateek Sharma and National Federation of Blind in an attempt to establish an effective mechanism for visually impaired and specially-abled students so that educational instructions can be provided to them properly with teaching material via online teaching mode during the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the question of law is left open, the bench said.
The high court had earlier asked the Delhi University and its examiners to expedite the evaluation process of online open book examination (OBE) and preferably announce student results in the first week of October.
