Respected sir I am the student of Maharaja Agrasen College, Delhi University. I was failed in 3rd year of B.Tech (electronics) of FYUP(Four Year Undergraduate Programme) which is the only batch in DU and after this there is no batch. DU has not released notification regarding this matter for failures like ex-students/ promotion from 3rd year to 4th year (as it was introduced last year). Now September has came to an end and we are not getting any clarification from them. As a result of this, we are getting our four year waste. Sir this type of matter does not takes place in any universities in which failing in third year year would get you out of the college. Either they are promoted or they get retained in the same year but this type of action is not taken anywhere. So sir I request to please look into the case and give me some advise regarding this matter. Please help and save me from this problem as my career would be ruined. B.Tech (Electronics) MAC, DU

It is mandatory for an educational university to produce clear notifications and it cannot waste a student’s year due to its negligence or delay. You may directly approach the Delhi High Court or Supreme Court with a writ of mandamus under Article 226 [1]or Article 32 of the Constitution of India, 1949[2] respectivelyThe writ of mandamus is a command issued by court to an authority asking them to perform their duties which they have refused to perform. Since providing uninterrupted education is the duty of an educational institution, you may challenge the actions of the university under this writ of mandamus, so that the court directs the university to take appropriate steps to resume your classes in an organized and regular manner.
