The high court also fixed various deadlines for declaration of results of undergraduate courses, between October 20 to 31 with a buffer of maximum of three days from the date fixed.

For BA (prog) courses, the results will be declared on November 6, it said.

A bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad also directed the varsity to ensure that results and marksheets are uploaded on its website and the students are not required to go to the college to physically collect it.

The bench also said that the marksheets downloaded from the website should not carry any footnote that it is subject to physical verification.

Marksheets downloaded from the website shall be valid for all purposes, it said.
