While¬†Delhi University aspirants are impatiently looking forward to the commencement of the online application form for all Undergraduate Courses,the bob of the pendulum has been moving to and fro as there is no clearance on the final date (tentatively May 28, 2016).The upcoming results of the enrolled students also seem to be ‚Äúhanging‚Äù and their condition is no better.Seems like DU is taking students for a toss this year too.
As per the media reports,¬†DUTA¬†(Delhi University Teachers‚Äô Association) has protested against the recent University Grants Commission (UGC) notification regarding the increase in workload. With university exams ending in the last week of May,the evaluation procedure was supposed to begin by Tuesday.The delay in the process has been caused due to the¬†boycott by Delhi University teachers.The boycott will last for 4 days after which the future course of action will be decided.
The uproar has begun due to a notification by University Grants Commission (UGC)¬†which stated new working hours for the professors of Delhi University i.e 18+6 hours for Assistant Professors and 16+6 hours for Associate Professors.The worst hit being the ad-hoc teachers.Such a huge increase is believed to take a toll on the teacher‚Äôs capacity to deliver quality lectures and fulfil other essential duties.
If not revoked, the notification can cause an impending havoc as the teachers contemplate to boycott the admission process too. They may even start a campaign among the prospective students and their parents,as stated in media reports.
What seems to be a major reason for the fallout is the decrease in the education budget allocated by the Central Government by 55%.Consequences don‚Äôt seem so bright since it can be predicted that there may be a delay in the result declaration for the Undergraduate students and a looming disruption in the admission process.Retrenchment of teachers and alteration of the student-teacher ratio can also be expected.
The fact of the matter is that future of students is at stake (only if they realize that).¬†
