Show Cause Notice To Students Protesting Against Mass Failure

The Delhi University has sent show cause notices to somewhere around seven undergraduates from different offices for arranging a month-long protest against “mass failure” in the Maths division. As a rule, the notification have been conveyed to the understudies’ permanent locations, that is, to their parents.

“Your unlawful activities have been causing inconvenience and disruption in the day to day academic and administrative functioning of the Faculty of Mathematical Science and the University system since February 14. You are hereby required to explain why disciplinary action should not be taken against you under Ordinance XV-B, Clause 3(i) of the Delhi University Act, 1922,” stated the notice dated March 15, authorised by Proctor Neeta Sehgal.“Your reply must reach to this office latest by March 25, failing which appropriate disciplinary action shall be initiated against you,” it further proclaimed.

Students have been on strike since mid-February alleging “mass failures” in several papers — 35 out of 40 students have failed in the Computational Fluid Dynamics course, 150 out of 300 in the Field Theory paper and 130 out of 300 in the Measure and Integration paper.

The notice has not only been sent to students of the Math department, but also, to those of the Faculty of Law and Punjabi department who also engaged in the protest.

An MSc Math student, whose mother informed him of the same, said,”The notice was delivered to my home in Sonepat, Haryana. I got an earful from my mother as she was not in favour of me participating in the protest. But I did so because the demands were genuine. When we are above 18 years of age, why should the notice be sent to our parents?‚Äù
