HC seeks DU digital degree data
Delhi High Court has directed Delhi University to submit data pertaining to the number of students who have applied online for digital degree certificates and the number of such certificates that have been issued.
The high court was informed that despite a judicial order, students have not been issued digital degrees. “This is completely violative of the order of this court. The timelines as set out in the order dated August 7 shall be adhered to strictly by DU,” Justice Prathiba M. Singh said.
The high court directed the university to issue digital degree certificates of the two students, who filed the pleas, before September 7.
“In the affidavit to be filed by DU, the data relating to number of students who have applied online for seeking digital degree certificates and the number of digital degree certificates issued online shall be clearly mentioned,” the judge said.
