However, the recent decision of the university to conduct B.Com and BBA Viva examinations as per the schedule,March 16 onwards,  gives anxiety to parents,teachers and examiners. And,it is a decision against government norms and World Health Organization guidelines.

Hundreds of  students and teachers have to meet together and travel from distant places by public transports.
