The High Court of Delhi has issued several guidelines and directions which the Delhi University are needed to follow for the issuing of digital degree certificates and the mark sheets to its students, these guidelines are an issue because there is no possible way in which the students can come physically to collect their degree certificates because of the pandemic which is spread all across the world and the only way left for the university to share the degree id through online method.
this order is released because there were many students of Delhi University who have filed the petitions before the court that they have not received any update for the issuing of the digital degree certificates from the university and this also includes the students who have graduated from the university years ago and still have not received the degrees.
The court has brought under the notice of the university that there should be a proper time check with the printer as to how much time would be taken for the printing of pages with the subsequent data and how much time the university would be taken for issuing the same certificate to the students, the court further directed the university that forms the upcoming years the university should opt the Digilocker to transfer the data or the results especially of the final year students so that the students do not have to wait for the issuing of degrees certificated.
In this regard the Delhi university submitted before the court that in the online portal set up by the university there is a specific tab which shares s that where the issuing of degrees is urgent or not urgent the students could opt the same as per the requirements and the university will take the actions accordingly for the issuing of the degree certificates.
It was submitted before the court that there are still 30,000 students who have not received the online degree certificates and in the reply to this the university said that the students could be allowed to upload their relevant documents and data required for the issuing of the online degree certificates and the university will then process the same accordingly
