The cloud over the ambiguity in the DU four-year undergraduate programme has not yet subsided fully. Though the FYUP was scrapped recently under huge political pressure there are still certain loopholes that are needed to be taken care of. The teachers are concerned about the internal assessment and are not clear about which scheme of internal assessments they should follow. They are still puzzled whether to assess the students by the scheme that was there before FYUP or the one that came with it.

Initially it was decided by Delhi University that the internal assessment would be project-based and attendance would not be a factor. But unfortunately none of it got notified and as a result there has been a widespread confusion in the university among the teachers.

All the 44 FYUP courses have been declared illegal by the UGC and thus the marks that the students have got at their first year courses in these programmes wouldn’t be of much value. The students who have joined the four year BTech programmes would stay for four years in the university but the AICTE approval which the UGC demanded from all the colleges running BTech courses is yet to come.

Though there are talks that are presently going for the AICTE approval.
