The Delhi University has decided to implement the National Education Policy from the next academic year. The decision came in view of prompting the varsity teachers' body to call a strike.
In a meeting by Standing Committee on Academic Matters approved the implementation of the policy from 2022-23. The four-year undergraduate program, and the multiple entries and exit options for students will be revised with national education policy. The committee, however, deferred discussion on the implementation of the Massive Open Online Courses. The Standing Committee's recommendations will come up for discussion in the Academic Council meeting on Tuesday. The university had formed a 42-member high-powered committee to look into the NEP's implementation.
The committee also accepted to keep the three-year honors degree courses by adapting them in the four-year honors degree and four-year honors degree with research courses. They said 'the quality of the degree conferred by the university should not be compromised.'
