On Wednesday, 30TH September 2020, AICTE or All India Council for Technical Education has made it clear to the HC of Madras that the Tamil Nadu governments order to cancel arrear examinations for the engineering students was against the norms. Point is the engineering degrees would not be awarded to the students who have not cleared their backlogs

It must be recalled that 2 PILs have been filed by former vice-chancellor of Anna UnIversity, Mr, E.Balaguruswamy and advocate Ramkumar Adityan challenging GO cancelling arrears examination in TN. Now, AICTE has made submissions through its reply to the two PILs filed.

It was later brought out by Mr. Sundaresan, south regional officer of AICTE that the council has not exempted the students from appearing for the examinations or allowed the students to go to the next year without being assessed by the examinations. He added that degrees would not be awarded to a student who has failed to clear the arrears.

The council mentioned that the TN states claim that GO cancelling arrear exams and passing all the students who have paid their exam fees as per the guidelines of AICTE was wrong. Truth is that only UGC through a circular permitted promoting the students to the next year without exams in view of the pandemic that too only to continue studies through online classes.

It must not be forgotten that on 8th September TN government justified its decision to cancel the arrear examinations and contended that the decision does not violate UGC norms.
