Credit-based detention measure part of existing norms: JNTUH Registrar 

He also said the credit-based detention measure is part of the existing norms. “These are not new norms. The exemption was provided for one year due to COVID-19. In fact, benefits were given at all levels, including exemptions for attendance and timings of the exam,” he said. “If there are more students on the detained list, then the measure will be cancelled. Otherwise, they will go ahead with it,” said T Mukund Madhav, a fourth-year student at JNTUH. However, students are hoping that the measure would be dropped altogether, Madhav said.
