The row over the controversial four-year undergraduate programme took a new turn as colleges affiliated to Delhi University on Monday deferred the admission to the academic session 2014-15.
After an emergency meeting of the Principals Association of the Delhi University, its president S K Garg announced that they decided to defer the admission process, that was to begin tomorrow, until clear-cut guidelines are issued by the competent authority on the issue.
The decision came hours after the expiry of a deadline set by University Grants Commission to the Delhi University to send its report of compliance of its order that admissions will take place only under the three-year undergraduate programme and not the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP).

Garg said there was a conflict between the guidelines issued by the university and those issued by the UGC. “As of now, we do not have any clarity. Due to this conflict, it is not possible for us to conduct admission process.
“Thus the Principals’ Association has resolved that unless unambiguous guidelines are issued, the admission process will be deferred. 36 principals were present, the remaining college heads will be informed about the decision,” he said.
According to Garg, the decision has been taken in the interest of the students, parents and colleges.
