HC upholds DU's decision to conduct online OBE with directions
NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court has given its nod to the Delhi University for conducting online Open Book Examination (OBE) for final year undergraduate courses from August 10 with a slew of directions. The court has asked DU to provide the question papers to the students through email and the university's portal. The varsity has also been asked to give extra time to the students to upload the answer sheets.

The directions by the HC have come while pronouncing the judgement through a video conferencing on a plea challenging the varsity’s decision to hold online OBE, as per the UGC guidelines, for final year undergraduate courses which will be in long-form exams.
Justice Prathiba M Singh, on pronouncing the verdict, has directed the varsity to send an auto-generated email informing the students that their answer sheets have been received.
The DU is scheduled to hold final year undergraduate online OBE from August 10 to 31 and the students who will be left out of online exams will be given an opportunity to appear in physical examinations, to be held sometime in September.
