UGC took to its official Twitter account to clarify this fake report. “This public notice is #FAKE! University Grants Commission has made NO such notice,” the commission tweeted.

The fake message stated that “as all colleges and universities operate in compliance with COVID19 protocols so that offline exams can be taken while maintaining physical distance at their home centers,” the fake message read. “So all universities are hereby advised to conduct all current and future semester exams in offline mode in their home centers while maintaining the COVID19 protocols.”

“Universities are requested to take proper precautions for the preparation of taking exams in offline mode,” the false circular added.

The UGC clarified that no such advice has been issued by the commission, tweeting that “University Grants Commission has made NO such notice”.
