Punjabi University convocation to be two-day affair

Patiala, November 30

Punjabi University’s convocation will be held across two days. The university in its latest notification stated that the PhD scholars from 2015 to 2020 will be awarded degrees during a separate ceremony on December 10.

The move follows the demand made by the PhD scholars of previous years for holding convocation for all the pass out students and not just for the 2020-21 batch.

The convocation for 2020-21 batch is scheduled to be held on December 9.

Controller, Examinations, AK Tiwari while issuing the orders said, “The degrees of PhD holders of 2015 to 2020 will be given away during a ceremony on December 10. Those interested in participating in the event should collect their degrees and submit them to the nodal centre at the office of the Controller of Examinations by December 3.”

Tiwari said the rehearsal for the convocation for such PhD holders will be held at 9 am at Guru Tegh Bahadur Hall on December 10 and the convocation ceremony will be held at 1.30 pm the same day.

This was after the University had earlier decided to give away PhD degrees during the convocation to only those who completed the degrees in 2021. Following this, PhD holders who got their degrees in preceding years until 2015, demanded that they also be given away their degrees during a convocation ceremony and not from their respective departments. The University’s convocation ceremony is being held after a gap of 6 years.
