2. Attendance in at least 75% of the lectures delivered in each paper, including the qualifying paper/s and appearance for at least two out of three periodical tests/assignments is compulsory, failing which the student shall not be allowed to appear for the semester-end examination for the paper/s. In this case, the consolidated statement of marks will carry the remark “Not Eligible” against the said paper. Such student shall have to seek re-registration to the paper during the subsequent Academic Year / Semester by paying the requisite fees.

3. Absence on medical grounds shall be offset against the 25% concession in attendance already granted. However, if absence on medical grounds exceeds 25%, the student may submit a Medical Certificate and request for condonation of shortfall in attendance on medical grounds. The Eligibility Committee shall examine such absence on a case-to-case basis.

4. A student representing the Institution / State / Country in extra-curricular or co-curricular activities may submit an application to the Director, through the Programme Coordinator, seeking leave of absence.

Students who are inducted as members of the core organizing teams/committees for organization of institutional events such as Placements, Economics Conclave, Annual Convocation, Seminars/Workshops, etc. shall be eligible for relaxation in the requirement of attendance up to maximum 5 lectures per paper per semester.
