Earlier, it was announced by the varsity officials that Prime Minister Narendra Modi might attend the convocation ceremony. Due to some reasons, PM’s visit to DU has been cancelled.
DU has finally decided to host the convocation ceremony as it has been delayed for the past eight months. If everything had gone as per schedule, the convocation would have taken place in the month of March. However, it was postponed, and the varsity did not mention the reason for the postponement. The Ph.D students of the varsity expressed disappointment over the same as they had already applied for degree certificate instead.
