DU committee to discuss formulation of syllabus


Expressing the hopes in the implementation of CBCS the The Delhi University Teachers' Association (DUTA) said that the new system would not be implemented hastily.

"The syllabus has to be prepared carefully. We hope the minister Smriti Irani will give us some time and look into the matter personally," said Nandita Narain, president DUTA.

According to TOI, National Democratic Teachers' Front(NDTF) member Inder Mohan Kapahy said "The surest way to kill any good academic idea is to implement it without any preparation, without creating the required minimum infrastructure and without taking stakeholders on board. This is what is actually happening as far as CBCS is concerned."

Stating the intentions of the MHRD and UGC as "good", Kapahy, however, said "There are 650 different kinds of universities, and over 40,000 colleges and a student strength of almost 2.4 crore. "

"Unprepared large systems too often become the burial ground for many good intentions," he added.
