The seven-member committee formed by Delhi University (DU) to provide a framework for the implementation of the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) from May-June 2015, submitted its discussion paper and report to the DU administration on March 17, sources said.

After much internal debate, the committee has prescribed three possible models for the implementation. “We’ve reached some clarity about how things should be carried out and we’ve come up with three probable models. We want these to be discussed and debated,” a source said.
The committee was formed by DU vice-chancellor Dinesh Singh in December and was headed by Principal of Maharaja Agrasen College Sunil Sondhi. According to source, the focus of CBCS will be on the transfer of credit points and student mobility. Students would be studying “core” and “elective” subjects with the facility of choosing the latter from any college or university.

The source said the finer details of implementation will become clear once the DU administration acts on the discussion paper and report.

When contacted, DU media co-ordinator Malay Neerav neither confirmed nor denied if the report was received by the university.

The Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA), has been campaigning against its “hasty” implementation, saying that it would lead to logistical issues, infrastructural crunch, fluctuation in workload and contractualisation of teachers. “What was the hurry to introduce a new system? We should first review the four-year undergraduate programme and analyse the problems it created for students and teachers, before we proceed to implementing CBCS,” DU Executive Council member Abha Dev Habib said.
