AISA members protest over FYUP in front of HRD ministry

Members of the All India Students Association (AISA) on Monday protested in front of the HRD ministry over the Four Year Undergraduate Program (FYUP) in Delhi University.

DU students as well as aspiring students have been facing a lot of difficulties due to ongoing tiff between the UGC and university over the FYUP.

Yesterday, the University Grants Commission (UGC) put up three separate notices for Delhi University, the colleges under it and students and parents, saying that the four-year undergraduate programme has been scrapped.

It ordered colleges to admit students for the three-year course instead of the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) which had been introduced last year.

The UGC on Friday in its letter to the DU had said that the four-year programme was against the NEP 1986, which envisages 10+2+3 policy and had asked them to restore the three-year programme which had been rejected by the latter.

The Delhi University later said that its four-year undergraduate programme is not against the National Education Policy (NEP) even after a directive from the University Grants Commission (UGC) asking the varsity to roll back the course.
