University Final Exams: SC Refuses to Pass Interim Order, Verdict Likely On August 10
GUWAHATI: The Final Year University Exams have not been cancelled yet. The Supreme Court of India adjourned the hearing awaited by students across the country on University Grants Commission (UGC’s) decision to conduct final year university exams.
The hearing has been pushed to August 10 and the apex court will not pass any interim order on the matter.
In today’s hearing, the Supreme Court of India asked individuals to submit affidavits by August 7 and rejoinders by August 8.
The Supreme Court however did take notice of the fact that fresh guidelines issued on July 6 by UGC did not take into account guidelines issued by MHA as those guidelines were issued much later on July 20.
On cancellation of exams in Maharashtra, the State Disaster Management Committee of Maharashtra has also been given time and asked to file a reply.
