The University of Delhi plays a significant role in formulating a detailed action plan for the formation of the Commission. It is recommended to constitute a Higher Education Commission under the new education policy (NEP). The Union Ministry of Education has authorized the DU to prepare a detailed report.
Following this, the Delhi University administration searched for suggestions from the teachers. The Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) has complained about not getting enough time to make suggestions.
Rajib Ray, Duta president has written a letter to the caretaker vice-chancellor, requesting more time for the teachers. It is mentioned in the letter that the Acting Vice-Chancellor’s Office had on March 23 asked the principals, heads of departments regarding the suggestion.
Two days later, teachers were informed about this. Instantly, the university is busy with the department open book examination (OBE). Since the Higher Education Commission, there will be considerable changes in the education system. Therefore, teachers must have time to make recommendations.
Rajib Ray, DUTA President said that another similar attempt was made in 2018. But then because of teacher protests nationwide, the government had to grab back from the formation of the commission.
It is worth mentioning that the acting Vice-Chancellor of DU Prof. PC Joshi had written in a letter to all the colleges and departments that a big number of colleges have been associated with Delhi University. The number of staff is also high. DU’s experience in the construction of the Commission can be helpful. Considering this, the Union Ministry has strived for suggestions from Delhi University.
In the letter, colleges, departments were proposed to compose online, offline meetings. Email the suggestion to the Director of the Institute of Life Long Learning by 30 March. However, An important meeting to discuss these proposals will be held on April 1 in the North Campus.
