The University argued that over 1,46,000 students had already appeared for the examination and arrangements had been made for the participation of thousands of students in the remaining examination. It was further argued that some of the petitioners before the single judge had themselves appeared for some of the offline examinations and could therefore not be allowed to challenge them.

The Division Bench of Justice S. Manikumar and Justice Shaji P Chaly stayed the order of the Single Judge and allowed the University to continue with its exams as scheduled.

KTU has announced that the exams will continue as per the timetable from today, 29th July, 2021. It has also stated that the revised date for the exam which was scheduled for July 28, which had to be cancelled due to the order of the Single Judge, will be announced soon.
