After the scrapping of the controversial four- year under graduate programme of Delhi University, the government has informed Rajya Sabha that it has been replaced with the three year programme which was in place in 2012-13.
In a written reply, HRD Minister Smriti Irani mentioned the steps taken by the UGC and its direction to Delhi University (DU) to restore the three year programme.
Irani mentioned that the University of Delhi has also reported that the Academic Council of University of Delhi has decided to replace, with effect from the academic year 2014-15, the syllabi/scheme of examination under the FYUP with scheme /syllabi which was in existence in 2012-13.
The UGC has also directed DU to make appropriate arrangement for the students who are already admitted in the academic year 2013-14 in the FYUP and to migrate them to the three year undergraduate programme structure so that they do not lose an academic year for obtaining undergraduate degrees.
The Vice chancellor of DU, Dinesh Singh had asked the principals of various colleges affiliated to the university to start admission for the new session. Admissions to various programmes are currently on process.
