Delhi University teachers who have been boycotting evaluation of undergraduate examinations for last 20 days in protest against the new University Grants Commission norms,on Thursday decided put the boycott on hold for final year students.
A decision in this regard was taken at a General Body Meeting of the Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA).
‚ÄúThe teachers today decided to end the boycott for final year students (FYUP batch). However, we will continue to boycott the evaluation for first and second year students. The same will be applicable for ongoing admission process and staff council meetings,‚Äù a DUTA statement said.
Delhi University teachers have been boycotting evaluation of Under Graduate Examinations since 24th May 2016 in protest against amendments to UGC regulations.
Terming it to be an ‚Äúunethical‚Äù mode of protest, students had urged the teachers to end the boycott fearing delay in results.
The university authorities had also urged the teachers to resume the exercise saying ‚Äúany further delay can jeopardize the career of students and also adversely affect the reputation of the university‚Äù.
The teachers, however, decided to continue with their protest and also boycott the ongoing Under Graduate admission process.
The GB decided to continue with boycott till June 20 following which the executive will decided the future course of action.
The teachers will also take out a candle light march on Saturday evening demanding Human Resources Ministry to roll back the decision.
