Smriti Likely To Scrap Delhi University"S 4-Year Ug Programme

News Information

Delhi University's four year undergraduate programme is all set to go. Highly-placed sources said the HRD ministry has come to this conclusion even though DU vice-chancellor Dinesh Singh on Monday made a desperate attempt to convince education secretary Ashok Thakur about the effectiveness of FYUP( four year undergraduate programme) and its long-term implications.A senior government functionary involved with the FYUP review said, "Theatre of action is not the HRD ministry but backroom work being done by RSS and BJP-backed National Democratic Teachers Front and other bodies."Asked when the decision will be made public, a source said, "It is a big decision and a poll promise by the BJP. There is a general consensus against FYUP across the left and right spectrum. But the secretary has advised caution. We are discussing it with all stakeholders. The poll promise will be delivered soon."The source added, "Immediately after the minister (Smriti Irani) joined, there was controversy about her. To scrap FYUP at that stage would have provoked criticism. The idea is to take well- thought decisions. It could be part of the 100-day plan."Sources in the ministry said there were various ways in which the old three-year system could be brought back. "Students who have done one year of FYUP will find it difficult to get back to the old system since they only did foundation course in the first year. Still, some way out can be devised. New students can be admitted to three-year undergraduate programme," an official said.The fight in favour and against FYUP has also resulted in machinations by the DU administration to win over RSS over to its side. "A small group of teachers who claim close relationship with the RSS leadership have promised the vice-chancellor that they will convince the Sangh on the importance of FYUP. The VC is relying on them but he does not realize that RSS outfits like India Policy Foundation are openly against FYUP. The tide has turned against him," a senior NDTF functionary said.On May 30, when an NDTF meeting took place at the BJP state unit office on Pant Marg, also attended by Irani, the overwhelming opinion of teacher activists like Inder Kapahy and Rajendra Bhatia and new MPs was that FYUP has to go and should be seen outside the prism of left and right. IPF director Rakesh Sinha had alleged that in its long history, DU had never witnessed an arbitrary decision like FYUP.
