Delhi University is all set to conduct its 98th convocation on February 26. Defense minister Rajnath Singh will be the chief guest at the convocation. DU will give digital degrees to nearly 1.73 lakh students, the event is among the few things that are being organised in offline mode. The event would start at 10:30 am and would continue as per schedule. While it is expected to conclude by afternoon, more would be known only tomorrow.

DS Rawat, DU’s dean of examinations, had earlier announced that “On the day of the convocation, we will release the digital degrees and all students who completed their respective courses in 2021 will be receiving emails for the same. We have sent all the data for printing the hard copies already. We should receive the same by the second week of March, after which individual verification of the degrees will occur. Once this is done, the degrees will be sent to the respective colleges and students can collect the same."

As per the reports, over 77,500 undergraduate (UG) and post-graduate (PG) students will be receiving their degrees this year. Over 91,800 undergraduate and 1126 post-graduate students from the DU School of Open Learning (SOL) will also be given their degrees in the next two months. Officials told TOI that 650 PhD students will be awarded their degrees this year. Further, Delhi University's Convocation will also be presided by Vice-Chancellor Prof. Yogesh Singh. 
“Earlier data was collected through colleges and it ended up being a time-consuming process. But this year, we are nearly ready with the degrees as we collected the data directly through the new examination form. Hence, the mark sheet and admit card data were ready and could be sent for printing,” the dean of examinations said.

Last year, the convocation was conducted in a hybrid manner -- a mix of online and physical mode. Over 156 medals and 36 prizes were also awarded to the students in person by Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, who was the chief guest of the occasion. Over 600 doctoral degrees and 44 DM/M CH degrees were also awarded in person during the ceremony.
