Chandigarh, June 13

The Punjab Government will take a decision on the conduct of examinations in universities and colleges in the state after June 30 in line with the fresh guidelines expected from the Centre in this regard.

This was clarified by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh during his Facebook Live programme on Saturday evening. In response to several questions on the issue of exams, with a large number of students urging promotions be allowed in universities and colleges without exams this year in view of the Covid crisis, the Chief Minister said the decision was not in the state government's hands.

Capt Amarinder pointed out that all universities and colleges in Punjab were either directly or indirectly affiliated to the University Grants Commission (UGC), a statutory body under the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. As such, their systems and processes were guided by the UGC, he said.

The UGC is expected to issue fresh guidelines on the issue of conduct of exams on July 1, 2020, based on the Central government's decisions after the lockdown ends on June 30, the Chief Minister said.
