Arrears can’t be cancelled: UGC to Madras High Court

Latest News

The University Grants Commission has reiterated that arrear examinations cannot be cancelled citing pandemic and Tamil Nadu government’s decision in this regard was against UGC guidelines.

The commission made the submission on Wednesday, while responding to a public interest writ petition filed by a lawyer to restrain 22 universities in Tamil Nadu from publishing results of students first to pre-final semesters without conducting arrear exams.

The court was requested to tag the PIL with an already pending batch of PILs moved against the GO of the Tamil Nadu government cancelling the exam. Recording the submission, a division bench of Justice M Sathyanarayanan and Justice R Hemalatha tagged the PIL with the other pleas and adjourned the hearing to November 19.
