Parents and teachers have started rejecting the inflexibility adopted by the Raj Bhawan to hold exams soon after lifting of lock down. Parents fear the spread of coronavirus as social distancing cannot be maintained if exams are administered. The UGC had also set up an expert committee headed by IGNOU vice-chancellor Nageshwar Rao on online education. This panel is in favor of adopting online examinations. It said that universities should conduct online exams if they have available resources and infrastructure to do so. If not, universities can wait for the lock down to get over and then decide a date for the exam.
