DU Admission Stalled

Delhi University colleges defer admissions, 2 lakh aspirants left in lurch

Amidst all the hullabaloo of the UGC v/s DU directives, 36 colleges of University of Delhi did not issue the First Cutoff List on Tuesday, leaving the aspirations of more than 2 lakhs DU aspirants in lurch. The admission process to the pioneer institution in the country was to begin from Tuesday with the first cutoff.
All these tension began, as the UGC on Sunday issued a letter to all the colleges of University of Delhi stating the FYUP as illegal and directing them to scrap this structure and take admissions under the conventional Three year structure. DU being an autonomous body says that it is not bound to follow he UGC’s directives.
This created more tension as on Monday as the student bodies such as AISA, ABVP, NSUI, protested in front of the VC’s office leading to further political clashes.
SRCC, one of the pioneer colleges of the University did issue the First cutoff list but did not begin with the admission processes amidst all these tension. St. Stephens too has postponed their admission processes following this tension.
FYUP or Four Year Undergraduate Programme was implemented from last year where the students would be given the Bachelors degree in four years and will have to study 11 Foundation Courses which has no connection with their major course.
Now the question remains what about the fate of the 54,000 students who took admission last year and have survived one year under the FYUP system? Now, only hope prevails that the administration will do some good to the students.
