The Delhi University has told the Delhi High Court that it has asked colleges to promote to the next semester undergraduate students whose results of the previous semester were not declared due to lack of attendance.
Justice G S Sistani, who was hearing two petitions filed by aggrieved students of Dayal Singh College, was informed by the varsity that they will be promoted to the next semester and their results of previous semester examinations would not be held back due to shortage of attendance.
In view of the notification of the university on the issue, the court disposed of students' pleas filed by advocate R K Saini.
The college had withheld their results as they did not have the stipulated 66.66 per cent of attendance.
