Impressing upon further upgradation of the examination and registration systems/ domains, the VC called for complete digitization of the registration data to bring further efficiency in the delivery of various services.
The Vice-Chancellor said the students and scholars visiting the Examination Wing will soon have a dedicated space to register their concerns/grievances and get the same addressed in a hassle-free manner.
She said a state-of-the-art facility is being created which will have an electronically-generated token system for visitors intending to have their concerns addressed in the concerned units of the Examination Wing.
"Steps are afoot to minimise the inflow of students and scholars to the Examination Wing to avail different services which will be provided to them online in due course of time," the VC said, adding that the University is now on DigiLocker which will ease students in a big way once the entire data is transferred on the platform.
Pertinently, the VC's visit to the Examination Wing is part of her ongoing endeavour to visit various teaching departments and centres to take stock of services and facilities available to the students.
