The Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) held the governing body meeting online to discuss several issues that arose in the current academic year due to the second wave of Corona.
The meeting was chaired by DUSU President Akshit Dahiya. The meeting was attended by 52 college student union presidents.
The purpose of the meeting was to discuss various issues faced by the students and to address the students’ concerns by passing them on to DU and college officials.
Issues raised in the DUSU meeting
- Students taking the exam under the Open Book Examination (OBE) should be given one more chance to submit their assignment. Also the attendance should not be proportionate to the evaluation of the assignment.
- It should also be kept in mind that final year students who are not able to give OBEs yet, should be given one more chance. Therefore OBE should be conducted in two phases.
- There should be 100 per cent concession in examination fees for students giving OBEs.
- For students who have lost their parents or guardians, steps should be taken by the university to refund the fees.
- There was a discussion on the non-acceptance of fees of blind student-writer and giving two options for open book examination.
- In a joint statement at the meeting, DUSU vice-president Pradeep Tanwar and joint secretary Shivangi Kharwal said that we are trying to reach every student of DU. So that the problem of every student should be kept in front of the Delhi University administration. At the same time, we will make every effort to completely resolve all the complaints and problems of the students.
