The University of Delhi on Friday has issued a draft UGCF – 2022 that is developed keeping in mind the new National Education Policy, now seeks views and feedback from the concerned stakeholders.
In a statement from university officials, it stated that the proposed draft has been uploaded on the university’s website and a Google form link window to submit the responses will remain open till January 31.
The official statement also mentioned that the draft UGCF is being circulated among the stakeholders’ students, recruiters, parents and academicians through a Google form. However, on the flip side, the fourth time revised template has already garnered a massive criticism by a large number of the teaching fraternity.
The academic council member of the university, Mithuraaj Dhusiya, stated that the draft before being issued was not discussed in the university’s Academic Council meeting and it wildly exploits the course structure curriculum of universities. Superficial changes to the draft will not blanket the looming problem of unemployment pervading in the country.
Another academician from the university stated that the latest scheme will downgrade the weightage system related to the number of hours and credits from six to four, which is unacceptable because it diminishes the value of key courses for students, is academically not viable and also lessen the workload of teachers, resulting in job losses and will be damaging to the teaching-learning system.
