Following the decentralization of the evaluation process for courses after the introduction of the four-year undergraduate program (FYUP), the Delhi University (DU) has decided that colleges should look into the discrepancies in evaluation at their own end. Hence, the university has passed on the responsibility of resolving discrepancies related to FYUP to the colleges. According to this move, students will now have to submit their grievance or revaluation applications at their respective colleges.
In a notification, DU said, "consequent upon the implementation of the FYUP all colleges will set up an in-house grievance redressal mechanism for resolving the discrepancies related to the foundation and applied language courses".
The dean of examinations of DU, Rup Lal, said that in case of any doubt or discrepancies in their results, students can submit their revaluation applications in their own colleges. Then, after making corrections in the college records, the principals will forward the applications to the examination wing within a month from the date of the declaration of the result for issuing further notifications, said Lal.
Earlier, the evaluation process was a centralized system and the university's exam unit used to look into such matters for every affiliated colleges. But, after the introduction of the new FYUP, the responsibility of evaluation of the foundation and applied courses ceded to the colleges. And, now the colleges evaluate answer scripts of their students by themselves, and so now they will also resolve the discrepancies in the results, if any.
"As the evaluation is done at the college level, it is logical that in case of any grievances students should go to the colleges which can address it directly. After rectification, the colleges will pass the details on to the university for correction in the final results," said Lal.
