JNU new attendance rules: All you need to know
New Delhi : JNU is all set to bring new attendance rules for the students. It has been said in a report that the college will be asking the students to sign an undertaking when they register for their course, saying that they will abide by attendance rules.
Despite facing flak over making attendance compulsory for students, Jawaharlal Nehru University has now decided to expand the move and make marking attendance compulsory for teachers as well.
In a meeting, held on Friday, the Academic Council (AC) has decided to bring in biometric attendance system for teachers. The AC also gave its approval to hold entrance examinations completely online from the next academic session.
The AC has also made it “mandatory for all teachers to show corrected answer scripts of all exams to students before finalising grades” to make evaluation “more fair and transparent”.
A minor protest was also seen outside the venue where the meeting was being held. The JNU Students’ Union and Kavita Singh, Dean of the School of Arts & Aesthetics, were barred from attending the AC meeting on Friday for alleged violation of discipline in previous meetings.
