Even as the stand-off between UGC and DU continued, the Standing Committee set up by UGC held its first meeting to discuss a roadmap for smooth transition to the three-year degree course, which had existed before the introduction of the FYUP.
In the meeting, it was recommended that all courses, including BA, BSc, BCom, BElEd and Honours courses, which existed prior to introduction of the FYUP be restored.
It was also recommended that sanctioned number of seats for each course be what it used to be before the introduction of the FYUP.
“For this, seats for courses like BA (Programme), BSc (Programme) that were redistributed to other courses, will have to be restored. This will affect new courses that were started last year under the FYUP and also new sections that were added to certain FYUP courses in existing
disciplines,” Nandita Narain, a member of Standing Committee, said.
The committee has also suggested that colleges advertise the number of seats for all ‘pre-FYUP’ courses on their website, and the same be done on the Delhi University website. The DU website should also display syllabi of each course, the committee said.

Narain, who is also the president of DU Teachers’ Association (DUTA), said one of the suggestions made at the meeting was that DU conduct the admission as per the procedure followed in 2012, when no application forms were required to get an admission.
“There can be a zero-application system, as it was in 2012. Colleges can announce cut-off lists based on the lists of the previous year. Those who have the required marks can take admission. This will save time,” she said.
DUTA also placed before the meeting its proposal for the current batch of students under the FYUP format. This included scrapping all Foundation and Applied Courses and offering three DC1 and one DC2 paper each in the third and fourth semesters. It was suggested that there be four DC1 papers in the fifth and sixth semesters so that all students can get an Honours Degree in three years.
For BTech students, it was recommended that the fourth year should be retained and they should be eligible for a BTech degree as per the terms and conditions at the time of taking admission, the committee said.
