New Delhi: Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) that had earlier decided to go forward with the admission process to undergraduate courses has retracted and said it was deferring the admission.

Yesterday, the Delhi University Principals` Association had announced that admissions to the colleges are being deferred, as there is a conflict between the guidelines issued by the Delhi University (DU) and University Grants Commission (UGC).

The University Grants Commission (UGC) had on Sunday issued a directive to DU asking it to scrap the FYUP.

The order fueled criticism from some quarters that the UGC was trying to overstep boundaries.

DU students as well as aspiring students have been facing a lot of difficulties due to ongoing tiff between the UGC and the university over the FYUP.
Some academicians are even planning to go on a hunger strike today against the UGC although the HRD Ministry has so far refused to comment on the issue.
