The development came two days after Delhi University postponed exams of final year undergraduate and postgraduate students of all streams scheduled to begin on July 10.
The Delhi High Court last Thursday granted more time to the Delhi University to draw up a plan for conducting examinations for final year students studying in the varsity. A division bench of the High Court presided by Justices Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad granted the time after senior advocate Sachin Dutta appearing for the varsity informed the court that a new plan has to be formulated in accordance with the latest UGC guidelines.
"Chart out a course and be clear on where you want to go," said the court while asking the varsity to file an affidavit regarding the same by July 13 i.e. Monday and the matter has been posted for further hearing on July 14.
