According to university officials, the varsity has not had its convocation since 1990 due to a number of technical and official reasons.
RU’s administrative secretary B S Shekhawat said the convocation on July 7 was made possible due to serious initiatives taken by the state Governor who gave the university a deadline to organise the event. 53 nodal centres have been set up to distribute degrees to qualifying students and scholars, he said.
