New Delhi, 6th May 2022: The High Court on Friday dismissed the petition filed against the conduct of offline examination in Delhi University. The petition had sought quashing of the Delhi University’s order dated February 11, 2022, which had said that the semester examination would be offline in May 2022. Justice Rekha Palli, after hearing all the parties, said that ‘now is not the right time to pass any kind of order in the matter’.


However, he has given freedom to the students challenging the offline examination that they can approach the court if the circumstances change due to the Corona epidemic.


Advocate Ajay Kumar Srivastava, on behalf of the students, told the court that once again the corona infection is spreading rapidly in the capital and a large number of people are getting infected in Delhi, so the university administration should reconsider its order of February 11. Under which it has been decided to conduct the examination in offline mode.


He said more than 65 per cent students studying in the university are outside Delhi and do not have their own vehicles to travel to their colleges.


The advocate has said that in view of the current situation, it would not be appropriate to conduct the examination in offline mode. The advocate said that since the students have completed their semester through online mode, they cannot be compelled to appear in the examination through offline mode
