Duta Proposed Fyup Alternative Before Rollback Plan By Mhrd

News Information

Even before news about probable rollback of Delhi University's four-year undergraduate programme came from the human resource development ministry, DU Teachers' Association had proposed an alternative for the current batch of FYUP. The proposal mentions how by doing away with the Foundation Courses (FCs) in second and third year the current batch of students can graduate in three years with honours. The National Democratic Teachers' Front (NDTF), which met HRD minister Smriti Irani earlier this week, also suggested a similar alternative for the current batch enrolled under FYUP.
While students also feel that FCs are a waste and want to see a rollback, the current batch enrolled in FYUP is concerned about their own programme. "I will be happy in case of a rollback, but hope there will be some provision for us to complete the degree in three years. The first year has been a complete waste because of the FCs," said Meenakshi Sharma (name changed) of SRCC, a student of the first batch of FYUP.Even DUTA has a plan in place for these students. "The alternative proposed by DUTA is only for those students who are already under FYUP (see box). For the rest we want a rollback to the pre-semester, annual mode. The semester system destroyed the School of Open Learning because migration became impossible," said DUTA president, Nandita Narain.Inder Mohan Kapahy of NDTF said it is possible to reconstruct the undergraduate structure. He has proposed to do away with FCs and replace them with Discipline 1 & 2 courses as well as Application Courses in the III to VI semesters so that the current batch of FYUP students can complete the degree in three years."It is possible to reconstruct the structure by reducing FCs in the second year. The two FCs in third and fourth semester can be replaced by discipline courses. Similarly, all discipline courses can be done in three years. All these courses can be compressed in three years, including the application courses by doing away with foundation courses." Kapahy said.Kapahy added that with DU following a different policy, it will restrict migration of students from and to other universities.Another critic of FYUP, history professor Nayanjot Lahiri, said, "There are lot of right-minded academics like Andre Beteille, Pratap Bhanu Meha and Ramchandra Guha who were deeply disturbed by the way the curriculum was prepared and the manner in which consultation was ignored while implementing reforms in DU. FYUP should either be made a national policy and introduced in all universities or it should be reviewed. The university did not think of consulting its own faculty to create even the foundation courses
