Karnataka CET Delayed after High Court Intervenes
Amidst rising cases in Karnataka, the court has asked for explanation by July 29th. The exams were initially scheduled for July 30th and 31st. Citing the daily increase of about 5000 COVID cases and enforcement of lockdown and other movement restrictions, the feasibility of conducting exams has been seriously questioned. Group fo students and NSUI and a few independent advocates had moved to the court. Karnataka govt had invited serious criticism for handling of COVID19 and citizens have voiced concerns regarding the availability of beds. Students hope that better sense prevails and exams are conducted at a later date when its safe and feasible without jeopardising the interests of the stakeholders.
