Sisodia said these Delhi state run universities have been asked to promote their students and award them degrees adopting some methodology of evaluation so that the students can apply for jobs or higher education.
He said studies in the universities were disrupted due to the pandemic, and it was not possible to conduct examinations. "Unprecedented times require unprecedented decisions," Sisodia added.
He also informed that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will write a letter to the central government, requesting to cancel exams for the central universities too.
