A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed seeking orders for Delhi University to implement UGC order for a three-year course system will now be heard on July 1.
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday refused to give an urgent hearing to two cross petitions, one for implementation of the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) and the other against it.
The vacation bench of Justice Pratibha Rani and Justice VK Rao on Wednesday refused to hear the matter urgently since the bench was unable to hear the case. The bench said that the matter has to be heard in detail and cannot be heard today. The matter will now be heard on Tuesday before the regular bench once the court reopens.

The PIL seeking implementation of the commission’s decision to restore the earlier three-year undergraduate programme has been filed by advocate R K Kapoor.
Kapoor has said, “FYUP violates the National Education Policy 1986, which advocates the 10+2+3 system, and therefore, it is necessary that DU must revert to the earlier system.”
Kapoor’s petition also states that 44 colleges under DU have voted against FYUP after implementing it last year.
Meanwhile, DU executive committee member Aditya narain Mishra also appeared before the court to mention his petition in favour of FYUP, but has not yet filed the plea as the case cannot be heard before July 1.
A year after the programme was introduced, DU and UGC are at loggerheads over the course.
UGC had issued directions both to DU and all 64 colleges under it to conduct admissions under the three-year undergraduate programme and not under the four-year programme implemented by the varsity last year, the PIL said, adding that UGC has warned DU and its colleges of “consequences” if they fail to implement the commission’s direction.
