A statement issued by Dinesh Singh, vice-chancellor, DU, said, “The University of Delhi recognizes the need of the hour. It is of paramount importance to protect the interests of the students by ensuring the start of the admission process. In line with the directive of the UGC, the university has decided to roll back the FYUP. The principals of our colleges shall assist in devising and ensuring speedy completion of the admission process.”
The admission process will now be conducted under the scheme of courses that were offered in the 2012-13 academic year in all DU colleges. For this, a 14-member committee of principals has been formed to monitor advice and facilitate admissions under the three-year structure. “The committee of principals, will devise the modalities for admissions and advise and monitor all related issues in colleges,” the university said in a press release.
For the first time in the university’s history, undergraduate admissions have been delayed because of the DU-UGC stalemate.
