DU VC retracts resignation; DU colleges agree on 3-yr UG structure
Apratim Chatterjee, 17 Jan 2015, #DU

Delhi University VC Dr. Dinesh Singh retracted his resignation hours after he reportedly put in his papers on June 24 even as majority of DU colleges, who agreed to follow UGC directives for implementing 3-year UG programmes, waited for formal announcement from University.

Most of the DU colleges confirmed that they will be looking at the admission process afresh and hoped smooth transition of undergraduate programme from FYUP to 3-year format.


Amidst ongoing confusion over the Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP), a University official on June 24 had confirmed resignation of Dr. Dinesh Singh to different media channels. 


“The Vice Chancellor has resigned. And this is the one line conversation, I have been asked to communicate,” the officials has informed media through his text message. Some unconfirmed reports had suggested resignation of other DU officials including Pro Vice Chancellor Sudhish Pachauri and South Campus Director Dr. Umesh Rai.


However, late in the evening, Deputy Dean (Academics) Sangit Ragi had denied such reports. “Neither the Vice Chancelllor nor any other senior officials have resigned from their posts,” he confirmed.



DU Media Cordinator Malay Neerav also admitted that he had initially been asked to convey the single line message that VC has resigned. He, however, said that the senior university officials persuade VC to reconsider his decision. “I received communication from the university office to convey that VC had resigned in the afternoon and conveyed it as asked. Later in the day, on account of senior faculty members making an earnest request to him, he changed his mind,” Neerav added.


He also said that VC did not actually write any letter of resignation.


57 Colleges ready to go back to 3-year format

Meanwhile, UGC claimed that 57 colleges had submitted a compliance report following its directive to go back to the prevalent 3-year DU programmes. Though, a section of DU Colleges Principals felt that the rollback would be an uphill task and the application process had to be taken afresh. Secreatary of the Principals’ Association and Principal of Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences, S. Lakshmi Devi said, “The prospectus and application process was based on FYUP. The applications have been made on the basis of that only. The whole exercise will fallback if we have to start fresh applications all over again.”


A section of DU teachers sat on hunger strike in DU campus favouring FYUP.

Hello Anurag, Yes these three subjects are fine but you need to add one more subject in order to complete the best of four percentage. The rule is that you need one subject related to the course you are applying for, one language course(most of the students have english) and other two courses you can select as any two subjects with maximum marks.
