Out of 64 colleges, 57 colleges under this central varsity agreed to follow the three-year undergraduate programme again.
According to the sources, It was said that if VC did not comply with the directive, he might be taught how to act in this situation.
The tussle between UGC and Delhi University’s Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh took a new drama-filled turn yesterday when VC blew the media with his resignation stunt, which was communicated by joint dean of students' welfare and media coordinator Malay Neerav. However later in the evening deputy dean for academic Sangit Ragi, denied that Dinesh Singh had quit.
Yesterday, late evening, to settle the matter and resume the DU admission procedure, UGC asked Delhi University to write to all the colleges under it, to comply with its third directive to the university, to admit students only to the three-year undergraduate course.
After the news broke that VC has resigned, Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani met pro-VC Sudheesh Pachauri to discuss the issue.
Also, UGC chairman Ved Prakash met senior officials in the HRD Ministry to hold discussion and came up with the third directive to the DU.
After the news of VC’s resignation, which came out in the afternoon, no official responded to confirm the news, which later was denied to be true.
As told by the sources, the VC was in the process of resigning but halted after the much persuasion from his colleagues and his official resignation letter was never received by the HRD Ministry office. He acted on his resignation after UGC directed him to scrap the controversial FYUP course and bring back the three-year programme in all colleges.
