UGC panel recommend new session from September

PUBLISH DATE 30th April 2020

The 12 members panel of University Grants Commission (UGC), set up to look into issues related to examinations and academic calendar faced by universities across the country due to the coronavirus outbreak and lockdown, have recommended that start of the academic session for new students be pushed to September.

At the same time, on the issue of promoting students to the next class, the committee has recommended that universities should either hold exams or adopt some mode of accessing their performance before promoting them.

UGC had in this month constituted two committees, first on examinations and academic calendar to be followed by universities and the other being on the issue of promoting online education. Recommendations of both the committees have been submitted to UGC and the ministry of human resource and development (HRD) is likely to announce its decision this week.

An official of the UGC, on condition of anonymity, told TOI that among several recommendations, the panel has advocated for universities to switch over to Six day working to compensate the loss. Many universities including Allahabad University (AU) follow the Five day week working concept.
