The state government will file an affidavit in the Telangana High Court on July 30, 2020 proposing to hold UG/ PG exams from August 20, 2020.

A petition was filed in High Court seeking cancellation of UG/ PG exams. The High Court directed state government to file its counter affidavit on the issue.

The state government has decided to file affidavit in High Court on July 30, 2020 stating that cancelling UG/ PG final semester exams is not possible as per UGC, AICTE guidelines and holding exams for these students is a must.
