The Delhi High Court on Wednesday declined to take up for hearing a public interest litigation filed by a Supreme Court lawyer seeking a direction to Delhi University to comply with the University Grants Commission’s (UGC) direction to admit students in the current academic session under the three-year graduate course.
Refusing to hear the petition filed R.K. Kapoor, a Vacation Bench said that the matter required an exhaustive hearing which would be heard by a regular Bench when the Court reconvened after the summer vacation.
Mr. Kapoor charged that the FYUP was against the National Education Policy which talked of 10+2+3 concept.
The petitioner also urged the Court to direct the Government to intervene in the matter to end the conflict and to save the career of the aspirants.
Meanwhile, eight students of Maharaja Agrasen College pursuing four-year undergraduate programme in different courses have moved the Delhi High Court against the UGC’s directive to the University to scrap the four- year undergraduate programme (FYUP).
The students argued that the UGC’s orders were arbitrary and whimsical.
