Delhi High Court Directs DU to Consider Issuing Degree: The Delhi High Court has asked the University of Delhi to find an alternate solution for issuing digitally or electronic Mark sheets, certificates and other documents to university students. The High Court also claimed that there is no reason why the University of Delhi can not have digital marksheets and other documents.
Justice Pratiba M. Singh, who conducted the hearing through videoconferencing, issued a notice to the National Academic Depository (NAD) and also asked senior officials to enter the proceedings on the next day to brief the court on the agreement reached between NAD and DU.
High Court Justice Order to Delhi University
Justice Pratibha M Singh said – Students should not be required to appear before the courts to issue their marks-sheets, transcripts, degree certificates, etc., which should be issued in the natural course within a reasonable period.
She added that – The representation is believed to have been made by 25 students to the Dean of Examinations of the Delhi University, but there has been no response and the majority of institutions have made alternative arrangements during the lock-down period for issuing digital certificates, digital sign sheets and digital transcripts online, along with digital signatures and security features.
