SC Upholds July 6 Circular of UGC Exams

Supreme Court on UGC Exam

The Supreme Court gave its verdict on Friday on the application filed against conducting the final year examinations of the University in view of the Corona period. The court upheld the July 6 circular of the University Grants Commission (UGC). The apex court refused to overturn the UGC guidelines, stating that the state had the authority to cancel the examination, but students would not pass without the examination.

The court said that under the Disaster Management Act, states may postpone examinations in view of the epidemic and consult the UGC to fix the next date. The court said that states should conduct examinations to promote students.

A bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and MR Shah ruled that it was a matter for the future of the students. Along with this, there is a responsibility to maintain the standards of higher education in the country. In this case, lawyer Alakh Alok Shrivastava appeared in the court on behalf of the students.

While delivering the verdict, the Supreme Court said, states and universities cannot pass students without conducting final year examinations till 30 September. The states which are not willing to conduct the final year examination by September 30, will have to inform the UGC.
