It should be ensured that examinations are held on time. The evaluation work should be completed within stipulated time period. Also, examination results should be declared on time.
He said year-wise information about number of university students and their placement status should also be maintained. Placement cells should be set up in all universities. He said there is need to make online arrangements to address problems of students and teachers.
