The University Grants Commission (UGC) has formed an advisory panel to monitor rollout of Delhi University’s four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) after facing opposition from a section of  academicians. However those supporting the FYUP have called the move a ‘direct assault and infringement on the autonomy and academic integrity of DU’.

UGC has decided to set up the panel after a section of academicians and senior politicians from various parties opposed the move approached various bodies including Prime Minister and President of India, UGC and Ministry of Human Resource Development.

The panel will be headed by eminent scientist S K Joshi, a member of UGC. Reportedly, Prof Dinesh Singh, Vice Chancellor of DU has argued that an intervention a few days before FYUP is rolled out would send a wrong signal.

Academics for Action Development opposing the move said, “The FYUP of DU has been duly approved by statutory bodies like committee of courses, AC and EC.”

“It seems such a move originates under pressure from vested group, private universities and left activism. This move is against the autonomy and upgrading of public funded institutions offering easily affordable quality education to all categories,” it added.
