Delhi University Accepts Syllabus For New Courses. Teachers Not Happy

DU Approves Syllabus of New Courses
Delhi University on Thursday has approved the Syllabus of New Courses in Commerce and Mathematical and Applied Sciences. Teachers seem to be unhappy with this. They continued to accuse the University as 'un-democratic' in its process.

Sources from the University told, "The faculties for Interdisciplinary and Applied Sciences, Commerce and Mathematical sciences have approved the syllabus for these new courses at the meeting held today".


Few teachers who were unhappy with the approval of syllabus broke offensive to express their feeling towards the act. They feel it is absolutely an unfair process to pass these courses under the pressure of the authorities.

Hem Chand Jain, a Commerce Professor in Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, said that select teachers were asked to prepare the syllabus for Commerce subjects with each paper being structured by a small group of 3-4 teachers.

"The university seems to expect from teachers that they will pass a 200-page syllabus document in one meeting without reading it. This is a mockery of the democratic system," he said.

"several important papers of the current course structure are excluded for the four-year programme", he added.

When important papers are excluded, will students be able to go through the course completely? What if they miss the main concepts which is related to the whole course. Who is responsible for this? Teachers who prepared the syllabus or the University who has approved the syllabus.

Also, recently a notification from the university noted 'The University is pleased to report that the Faculty of Social Sciences at its meeting today granted approval to the Department of Economics and Political Science, of study in respect of all requirements of the new four-year undergraduate programme.'
