assessment marks of the students.

the impasse and a requisite appeal would be issued tomorrow,"
the counsel said.

members tomorrow evening and look into the issue raised by

The Bench was hearing a petition filed by the University
seeking a direction restraining the agitating teachers from
going on strike and holding demonstrations repeatedly.

demonstration the smooth functioning of the administration,
educational and examination system has been affected.
Following a letter from the University Grant Commission
(UGC) on March 21, DU has implemented the semester system for
the undergraduate students.

DUTA has been opposing the semester system for a long
time but matters came to a head when Vice Chancellor Deepak

the academic council meeting last week.

curriculum without discussion and walked out of the meeting.
