States cannot cancel Final Year Exams: UGC
| Education Jagat - 16 Aug 2020

The UGC in the Supreme Court questioned the decisions of Delhi and Maharashtra governments to cancel final year exams of state universities amid the COVID-19 pandemic, saying they were against the rules. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told a bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan that states cannot change the rules of the University Grants Commission (UGC) as only it is empowered to prescribe rules for conferring degree.
 Mr. Mehta argued that not conducting exams will not be in the interest of students and degrees may not be recognized if the states would act unilaterally. The apex court was hearing a batch of pleas that have challenged the July 6 directive to all the universities and colleges to conduct final year examinations by September 30 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
