UGC asks DU to scrap FYUP, bring back 3-year structure
Abhay Anand, 23 Jun 2014, #DU

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has issued order to the University of Delhi (DU) to discontinue with the Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP) and continue with the process of admissions that was in place earlier.


The UGC has asked DU to take admissions for the academic year 2014-15 and the subsequent academic years for the general undergraduate programmes in the ‘three year’ structure which was prevalent in the University prior to introduction of FYUP.  


The UGC order has come just before the University is going to announce its first cut-off list for admissions to various undergraduate courses on 24th of June. It is still not clear that whether its affiliated colleges will come up with a revised cut-off list, as the whole structure of programmes will change now.   


The UGC in its order has termed the DU’s FYUP as a move against the National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986, as adopted and approved by the Parliament, which mandates a common structure of education and a National system of Education with a 10+2+3 structure throughout the country.


On June 16th this year, the Commission issued an advisory to the University of Delhi to review the continuation of FYUP.




Following this the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) in exercise of powers vested in it under section 20(l) of the UGC Act, 1956, issued directions on 20th June, 2014 to the Commission to ensure the implementation of NPE, 1986, specifically in respect of the educational structure, and to further ensure that no University or institution of higher education violates the academic structure of 10+2+3 in undergraduate programmes in general higher education.


The Central Government further directed the Commission to issue necessary directive to the University of Delhi to adhere to NPE 1986 and also take all such measures as deemed necessary to ensure implementation of the NPE, 1986.


UGC has argued that the FYUP would create complications for the students who are going to opt for migration in other universities since all other universities follow a system of three-years undergraduate education for general degree programmes.


The UGC has also asked the DU to make appropriate arrangement for students, already admitted in the academic year 2013-14 in the FYUP, to migrate to the three year undergraduate programme structure so that they do not lose an academic year for obtaining undergraduate degrees, and for this purpose, ensure that students acquire necessary academic and other competence during the next two academic years.
