New Delhi: Delhi University has decided to go ahead with the introduction of the Choice Based Credit Transfer scheme (CBCS) from the upcoming academic session apparently without the “mandate” of the university’s executive council.
In an official communication to deans of all faculties on April 29, the DU’s Joint Registrar (academics) has directed them to start preparations for its implementation.
The registrar’s communication came after a meeting between the Vice-Chancellor and the deans to discuss its implementation on April 23.
“I advise you to start the process of preparation of syllabi for all the undergraduate courses within the structure laid down by the University Grants Commission . The detailed guidelines, course structure, and draft model syllabi for 19 undergraduate courses which are available on the UGC’s website may be carefully pursued by you before starting the process,” the letter said. The CBCS allows students ‘seamless mobility’ across higher education institutions and transfer of credits earned by them.
However, members of the executive council, which is the supreme decision making body of the varsity, said the matter has not been reported to the EC.
“The matter has not come for its perusal before the executive council. Like the FYUP, this matter is also being forced in a fast-track manner following the UGC diktat. The university has all the rights and autonomy to reject the proposed programme,” Abha Dev Habib, an EC member, said.
