On Friday, the division bench of Justices Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad came down on DU for it’s “lax attitude” as some officers involved in the result process failed to join the hearing despite an explicit order from the court. The court was asking about the date from which distribution of papers began among evaluators. “This is most unacceptable. We take strong exception to it,” the court said.
DU’s counsel, advocate Mohinder J S Rupal, said eight postgraduate students as of now have to apply to foreign universities and DU can declare their results by October 10. There are 180 undergraduate students, and discussions are being held to decide about issuance of a confidential result, a tentative result based on the past performance in five semesters, the counsel said, adding that the result would be directly shared with the foreign university. The university sought time till Monday to make a final decision.
