‚ÄúThis was not intimated to the university‚Äôs supreme academic body. We, as academic council members, met over three days in June and the administration never revealed anything about seat reduction in English or any other discipline. The university owes us an explanation” said Sachin N,an English teacher at Dyal Singh College.

The seat cut has put a condition that even those DU students who have got marks as high as 70% cannot secure an MA seat. The HRD ministry should direct DU to reverse this anti-student move.” said Pappu Ram Meena,another English teacher at Dyal Singh College.
