With teachers threatening to intensify their agitation and boycott the admissions,the issue is expected to grow bigger.

On Monday, UGC called representatives of teachers across the country for a consultation on the regulation.With no concrete assurance coming from the UGC,teachers are now planning to intensify the whole protest.

“The entire evaluation and result declaration process takes 30 days. Now with almost two weeks lost, the results would be delayed,” said an official of the examination department.

Teachers said they would decide their future course of action at the Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) general body meeting on Tuesday.

Meanwhile,a lot of teachers and students came out in support of DUTA members,who held a ‘Khali Thali Dharna’ on Monday to protest against the latest notification of the University Grants Commission (UGC).

Around 16 student unions have extended their support to the DUTA.

Among those present at the protest site were AAP’s student wing Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti, Congress student union National Students’ Union of India and Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU).

JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who was present at the protest,was not allowed to address the gathering.Some teachers were against Kumar addressing the gathering.
