New Delhi, June 26:  The UGC has given an ultimatum to Delhi University today, saying that they should start the admission process under the 3-year UG program immediately and submit a compliance report by today afternoon.

In a letter to the DU registrar, the commission made it very clear that the admissions should take place under the 3-year program and not under FYUP.

New Delhi, June 26: In a statement DU said,"The University of Delhi has received today a document, from some eminent citizens, outlining concrete suggestions for the solution of the current situation as it exists. While welcoming this initiative, the university is examining in detail the document and is working with the expectation that the admission process shall be able to commence soon."

UGC had other suggestions too. It said that even if a fourth year was added, it should be designated as "honours with research degree". It also said that the BTech program be untouched, except for reduction in foundation courses.

DU has not replied to UGC's repeated urge to revert to the 3-year program. The former has not intimated the colleges about anything too, but have decided to speak after receiving a plan from independent committees.

55 of the 64 city colleges had agreed to go back to the 3-year course. However, they said they will not be able to start admissions until they got notice from the university.
