New Delhi: Delhi University will allow students who were unable to complete their degrees to return to the varsity and take their final exams, as a part of its year-long centenary celebrations starting 1 May.

In reply to a question at the Lok Sabha Monday, Minister of State for Education Dr Subhas Sarkar informed that the university has decided to conduct examinations twice during the centenary year.

“The University of Delhi has decided to give the centenary chance to all the ex-students of the University, who could not complete their degrees due to various impediments. It has been decided to conduct examinations twice during the centenary year of the university commencing from 01.05.2022 to 01.05.2023,” Sarkar said in a written reply.

Vikas Gupta, registrar of Delhi University, told ThePrint that the decision was taken as part of a special executive council meeting held in January.

“As part of our centenary celebrations this year we will set up a portal where former students who could not obtain their degree due to whatever reason will be allowed to register. After which two exams will be conducted wherein they can appear for the subject they could not clear and obtain their degree,” Gupta said.

In January’s executive council meeting, the varsity had also allocated Rs 10 crore from the university development fund and planned to set up a ‘coffee table book’ launch to mark the centenary celebrations.

The university development fund committee panel consists of former vice chancellor Yogesh Singh and registrar Vikas Gupta.

“The committee noted and took on record that the University of Delhi would be completing 100 years of glorious service to the nation in May 2022…The committee endorsed the decision of the university to commemorate and celebrate the occasion in a grand way,” read a report by the university development fund committee panel, released in December last year.
