University of Delhi: The High Court of Delhi has ordered the initiation of legal proceedings against the University of Delhi against its alleged preparedness for conducting the Open Book Examinations (OBE). This came in view of the Court after the University postponed the OBE that was to commence from July 01, 2020.

In the former petition filed in the High Court by the students of Delhi, demanding to scrap the OBE, the administration had ensured the Court of its preparedness to conduct the OBE for its final year students. The petition was, therefore, disposed of by the Court. The Court also declined to accede to the request made by the senior Advocate, Mr Kapil Sibal, who called for the abrogation of the OBE.

The University notification mentioning the postponement of the OBE, for 10 days, stated the reason as the pandemic. Upon investigation by the Court, Professor Vinay Gupta, the Dean of Examinations, responded that the Deputy Registrar’s mother was discovered to be Covid-19 positive on July 26 and the notification mentioning the deferment of the OBE was dated July 27. The High Court has, therefore, accused the University of ‘withholding material information from the Court and trying to mislead the Court.’
