DIBRUGARH, April 23: Hundreds of Students’ Federation of India (SFI) members staged a dhar in front of the administrative building of the Dibrugarh University (DU) on Thursday demanding early removal of existing irregularities in the semester system of examition and to hold special examition for students who have back in the examition.
The president, Nirangkush Das and secretary, Rituranjan Das, of State SFI Committee, in a press communiqué, alleged that more than 2,000 students were deprived from obtaining graduate degree due to introduction of semester system violating all norms of the system.
“The DU authority has been driving the entire student community towards a bleak future by introducing the semester system as par the rules and regulation of the university on one hand and on the other by violating all norms of the semester examition,” both the SFI president and secretary asserted.
According to reports, the SFI leadership claimed, the DU authority did not allow students to clear their back in first, second and third semester examitions in 2011-14 academic years.
Both the SFI leaders alleged that the DU authority had miserably failed to hold examition on back subject within 45 days after the semester examition, as par directives of UGC on semester system of examition.
The agitating students later submitted a memorandum with their three-point charter of demands to the Registrar of DU. The demands are to hold examition as par the norms of semester system for giving an opportunity to students for clearing their back subjects, to hold examition for back subjects within 45 days of the completion of semester examition or to hold examition for back subjects separately and to fix five years for completion of degree courses.
According to SFI press communiqué, the DU authority has agreed to fulfill the students’ demand.
