New Delhi: While the top brass in Delhi University ponderes over online system to conduct semester exams amid the nationwide lockdown, teachers, members of academic council have started to speak up against the probable plan of conducting examinations in one of Asia's largest universities. Rajesh Jha, a member of Executive Council, has raised concerns over the procedure adopted to decide the methods of conducting exams, saying the top brass has been bypassing the compulsory process of taking a decision through statutory bodies such as the Academic Council and Executive Council. “This is not only imprudent on the part of DU officials but also beyond their jurisdiction, as they are trying to bypass the statutory bodies such as the AC and EC which are empowered to take decisions and resolve the examination matters,” said a joint statement by Rajesh Jha and JL Gupta (another EC member).
They said the move was an attempt to influence the two task force committees of UGC and MHRD. Both committees have been tasked to recommend measures related to annual exams. (IANS)
