His message reads as follows:
The primary objective of Gauhati University at this moment is to bring a completion to the ongoing semesters and allow the students to progress towards their academic objectives. Considering the present situation, GU has decided to carry out the examinations and other academic activities on the basis of the recent UGC Guidelines [29.04.2020], UGC Revised Guidelines [06.07.2020], and UGC Standard Operating Procedure [08.07.2020].

A detailed work plan and optimization of the examination procedure for the students of GU is underway. I would like to mention that, an exclusive and student friendly procedure is to be implemented at GU so that maximum benefit can be assured to the students. GU will implement a mixed procedure of examination and may give only a marginal weight to the online mode. A detailed procedure and calendar of examination will be published immediately on completion of ongoing lockdown in Guwahati.

GU plans to complete all examination procedures by 30th September 2020. I would like to request the students to go for filling up of examination form so that the number of students aspiring for promotion to the next semester / award of final degree can be assured. The date of form fill up will be extended to facilitate all the students.

I have been receiving communication from a huge number of students (UG and PG of all branches, Engineering, B. Ed, Law, etc.] through Email, WhatsApp message, phone message etc., on examination related issues. It is personally not possible to reply all such communications. Through this message I wish to convey that there will be some form of examinations for all levels but with an exclusive and student friendly procedure. I request them to continue study on their own convenience.

I have also received memorandum submitted online by a number of student organizations expressing their appeal, concern and demands with regards to examination and other academic issues in the COVID-19 situation. I acknowledge the receipt of their memoranda. The concerns of the students are under consideration.

GU is all prepared to restart all pending activities [examination, admission, start of new session etc] as soon as the reopening of the higher educational institutions in India will come into force.
