After the announcement of Dr Abdul Kalam Technical University to conduct the AKTU 2021 exam in the offline mode, many petitions were filed in the supreme court regarding the same. The university has decided to conduct exams in offline mode after seeing a decline in COVID-19 cases. But many students are against this decision and hence filed petitions. However, the supreme court has denied a challenge filed by students regarding the decision of the university to conduct offline exams at the end of the semester. Krishna Kumar and Nandani Gupta filed the petition on behalf of the students challenging the university’s decision.
As per the petition, around 4 lakh students will appear for the exam, and it will not be safe to conduct offline exam amid COVID-19 as students will have to travel to reach the examination centre. They might come into contact with the disease and hence, appearing for the exam in this pandemic is vulnerable for students’ health. Besides this, many universities like IITs and NITs are still conducting online classes for the students. The petition was declined by the supreme court and issued with an order to resume the decisions taken by Dr Abdul Kalam Technical University.
