The Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) has recently written a letter to the Prime Minister, DU Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi and the Human Resource Department Ministry on the issue of conducting Open Book Examination for students.

In the petition started by the Teachers Association against OBE for final-semester students, approximately 15,700 signatures were garnered and a copy of those was sent to the Prime Minister, HRD, Vice Chancellor of DU and chairperson of UGC.

It was noted from the petition that the biased decision taken by the University could negatively affect a large part of the University’s students’ results. DUTA has been actively opposing this decision and seek the Prime Minister’s help through this letter as a last resort.

The President of the Association, Rajib Ray, expressed his disappointment as he mentioned that the University chose to ignore the opinions of 52,000 students gathered through DUTA’s survey-cum-referendum.

85% participating students opposed the idea. Many had even mentioned that they have been facing a lot of anxiety and stress due to this.

“The DUTA believes that at such times, it is the duty of the educators to be sensitive towards the physical and mental well-being of students instead of forcing them towards iniquitous, short-sighted and cruel experiments like the Online Open Book Exam,” Ray added.
