“If institutes like IIT and NLU have already awarded degrees to their students on the basis of internal assessment, then why can’t other universities do the same? Several global universities have also awarded degrees on the basis of internal assessment in the time of corona pandemic” wrote Mr. Kejriwal.
He also said in letter that
- Several states including Delhi have already issued directions to the state universities to cancel examinations and award degrees.
- But for central universities, which include Delhi University, the centre will have to make a decision, he wrote.
- “UGC and MHRD have refused to overturn their decision on the university exams. It seems that your intervention may resolve the issue.
- I humbly request you to review the centre and UGC’s decision in the best interest of students and cancel the final semester exams, so that student’s future could be saved,” he writes

“Throughout this whole semester there were minimal studies. All laboratories and other such facilities were closed. We believe that it is difficult to conduct exams when regular classes have not been held. Delhi Government has decided to cancel all final-year and semester examinations for all semesters in state-run universities.”
