The arrangements for saving an academic year of those Delhi University (DU) students who took admission for 2013-14 batch under FYUP have also been made by the Delhi University after receiving directions from UGC and HRD ministry.
Yesterday, it was officially informed by the centre to the Rajya Sabha that the controversial four-year undergraduate programme of Delhi University is scrapped with effect from this academic session onwards, and the former three year programme which was in place in 2012-13 will be replacing last years’ FYUP.
HRD Minister Smriti Irani had also in a letter highlighted the measures taken by UGC to restore the three-year programme smoothly, the directions for doing the same has also been sent to DU for implementing restoration.
UGC and Ministry being concerned for the 2013-14 batch students in DU, who had enrolled themselves under FYUP, have given directions to DU to undergo appropriate measures and arrangement for those students so that they can migrate to the three-year undergraduate programme structure and not lose an academic year for obtaining undergraduate degrees.
The scrapping of the controversy creating FYUP structure was announced on 27 June by Delhi University after having to face pressure from UGC to act on its directive.
Current Vice Chancellor of the varsity, Dinesh Singh has also urged principals of several colleges under the university to begin admissions for the new session under three-year structure. Admission procedure for many programmes for 2014-5 academic year is still ongoing.
