The university took up to Twitter to clarify and advise the students to not fall prey to any misinformation. The IGNOU official tweet says, “Please be advised that the university has not issued any notification with regard to the extension of submission date for Assignments or Practicals for June 2021 Term End Examinations.”

The last date for online submission of IGNOU June 2021 TEE assignment, internship report, fieldwork journals, projects and dissertation is May 31.

Appeal for extension

Some IGNOU students are demanding an extension on the due date of IGNOU assignment submission as they haven’t received the study material due to Cyclone Yaas, while others say that their family members including them are coping up with the deadly Covid-19 virus.

Manisha Das, an IGNOU student who is affected by the cyclone wrote on Twitter, “Kindly extend the dates for assignment submission because we have not received some of the study materials and due to cyclone YAAS we are facing many problems. So we request you to kindly extend the dates for assignment submission.”

The statewide lockdown and curfew imposed by various state governments has forced many students to stay inside their home. Some students are even finding it hard to visit the nearby stationery and bring the assignment material. The fake messages received through WhatsApp and Telegram regarding the extension are also adding more to the misery.

One such Twitter user who received a fake message about the date extension says, “Meantime, many students (me including) gave into a viral fake message that the assignment submission date has been postponed to June 30, 2021.”

One student alleges that there is disparity over the IGNOU assignment submission last date on the regional centre website saying, “It's confusing. RC websites say different things. Home Page of RC Pune says the deadline is 29th May. When you visit the student corner the submission link reads the date to be 15th June. 30 mins ago the same form read 30 June. A letter was also available which is deleted now.”

Earlier, IGNOU has postponed the June 2021 TEE examinations, in view of the Covid-19 situation in the country. The new dates for the IGNOU June TEE exam 2021 will be announced soon and according to the latest update, the last date to fill the IGNOU exam form 2021 is June 15.
