New Delhi, June 23: The DU-UGC faceoff may fibnally come to an end sometime soon. Human Resource Development minister Smriti Irani has called for a meeting with the UGC officials today to discuss the possibility of the 4-year graduation course that she had proposed.
As per DU sources, they will be replying to the UGC by Monday afternoon. They further said that they are in constant touch with the UGC. However, principals of most of the colleges say that they are waiting for the VC's statements, but want to release the cut-off list on time.
The UGC had all Delhi University students to admit students under the 3-year undergraduate programs and not under the 4-years' one proposed by the HRD. The UGC had also warned that any deviation would lead to serious action, including withdrawal of grant facilities.
The confusion led to many colleges deferring their admissions, barring a few like SRCC that hope to release the cut-off list on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, amidst protests by students' unions here, the The Delhi University Teachers Association has welcomed the UGC move adding that the University does not have any legal right to defy the order. [Read More]
