According to the source, the decision was taken at a meeting with DU officials,which was chaired by HRD minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal.
Earlier on Tuesday, the university grants commission (UGC) had said that final year university examinations may be conducted by the end of September, either online, either offline, or through a combination of both.
Meanwhile, final year students at the University of Delhi have been demanding that they be marked on the basis of internal assessment and marks scored in previous semesters.
While DU says that students without internet access can avail of Academic Common Service centres.
