University of Delhi : In a series of fresh proceedings concerning the petition in the Delhi High Court against the provision of the Open Book Examinations (OBE), the matter was heard in the Court today. Additionally, the matter has been listed for Tuesday, June 23, 2020 as well.

In the hearing today, only a portion of the arguments from both the counsels, ie, the petitioners studying in the University of Delhi and the respondent (the University itself), was heard in the court. The arguments, however, both in favor and against the OBE were in multitude which eventually led to the hearing be dated for June 23, 2020.

The petition was originally filed in the High Court of Delhi “against notification, dated May 14, 2020, issued by respondent (University of Delhi) to conduct the remote Open Book Examination (OBE) for the Final Year students of Under Graduate (UG) and Post Graduate (PG) Programs including students of School of Open Learning (SOL) and Non-Collegiate Women Education Board (NCWEB).”

The petition accuses the University of violating the Right to Equality of the petitioners and the students, at large, because of the difference in technological infrastructure, connectivity and the atmosphere including background noises, sitting space, dedicated room, etc which will “adversely affect the interest of students” of rural and poor urban areas. The petition mentions a lack of approval of OBE “through any rules, regulations or decision of the Academic Council (Section 23 of the Delhi University Act).”
