DU Teachers' Association protest against 4 year course under NEP 2020

The Delhi University Teachers’ Association has been protesting against the implementation of the New Education Policy. The policy is citing the dilution of degrees under the four-year undergraduate program in varsities.

Now, the association protested outside the vice-chancellor’s office while the Academic Council meeting was held to discuss the implementation of the policy was going on. The development comes a day after the Standing Committee on Academic Matters approved the implementation of the policy from 2022-23. The four-year undergraduate program, and multiple entries and exit options for students were discussed. Following the approval, DUTA wrote to acting Vice-Chancellor PC Joshi and requested him to thoroughly discuss these matters be first discussed at all statutory levels. 

In the letter, it was written that “Such widespread discussions would enable the University to not take hasty steps towards implementation of the provisions of NEP 2020 and other regulations. It would do well for the University to remember the disastrous implementation of the FYUP in 2013 and its subsequent withdrawal in 2014 after widespread protests by all stakeholders." It further read “Survey amongst students showed that students were spending close to Rs 1.5-2 lakh per year in staying in Delhi to receive an education. Students rejected the idea of FYUP because of the dilution of the first two years of FYUP."
