Under the University of Delhi’s Centenary Chance initiative, a 70-year-old man is given the chance to complete his LLM after 40 years.
70-Year-Old Fortunate to Complete LLM: As part of the University of Delhi’s ‘Centenary Chance’ initiative, Rajesh Kumar Rawat, 70, has another chance to fulfill his ‘long-held’ dream of completing his Master of Laws (LLM). Rajesh left DU about 42 years ago.
He is one of 8,200 Delhi University alumni who have registered for a second chance to complete their studies. Mr. Rawat did his LLB in Lucknow and then joined the CBI as a researcher. He transferred to Delhi and was admitted to an LLM course at the University of Delhi in 1979. He was unable to complete his degree due to his regular assignments abroad while working for CBI.
About the Centenary Chance Initiative
About the Centenary Chance Initiative: In March, Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh announced that DU students who drop out would be offered a “hundred-year chance” to complete their studies and graduate. A proposal to this effect was approved at a special meeting of the Executive Council held on January 28 to discuss the university’s centenary celebrations.
Eligible applicants may apply for a maximum of four jobs for the annual review mode and up to eight jobs for the semester program. The exam will tentatively be held in October of this year and March of the next in physical modality.
It will be held for a theoretical and practical exam, not for an internal evaluation, the university said. The university informed that students applying for the “Centennial Opportunity” must provide the required details and documents.
