The university had earlier decided to conduct the examination as per schedule, despite the UGC order.

F. no. 1-14/2020 dated 19/3/20 which as you know has asked all the universities int he country to reschedule all examination and related activities post March 31 on account of the current COVID- 19 scenario, the university has apparently taken a decision to conduct LLB examination from Monday, March 23. This decision has naturally caused considerable distress among the families of over 1500 students who are registered to take these exams.”
