Students started opposing the university’s order the day it was released. Several delegations met the exam controller and administrative authorities to press their demand of holding online exams but the university authorities didn’t budge.

One of the students of RGPV, who is also vice president of NSUI, Gopil Kotwal said that most of the students haven’t come back from their native places due to corona pandemic. They will have to come to Bhopal to appear in exams thereby burdening them financially.

Exam controller Prashant Jain approached the students sitting on protest and engaged them in talks.

Jain said that a proposal seeking guidance regarding exams has been sent to the technical education department. RGPV will act according to the instructions it gets from the technical education department, he added.
