DUTA restrained from obstructing admission process

The Delhi HC on Monday restrained the Delhi University teachers, who are agitating against implementation of semester system for undergraduate students, from obstructing the admission process for the academic year 2010-2011.



New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday
restrained the Delhi University teachers, who are agitating
against implementation of semester system for undergraduate
students, from obstructing the admission process for the
academic year 2010-2011.

In an interim order, Justice A K Pathak said: "keeping
in mind the career of large number of students, it is ordered
that till the next date of hearing defendant(DUTA) and its
office bearers are restrained from obstructing admission
process in any manner whatsoever."

While hearing a petition filed by DU seeking direction
to the Delhi University Teachers Association(DUTA) not to
indulge in any agitation or obstruct the admission process,
the court issued a notice to DUTA and sought its response by
August 16.

The University had approached the High Court after it
received letters from some of its college principals that on
June 18 the teachers have decided to disassociate themselves
from admission process for the academic year 2010-2011.

Following a letter from the University Grant Commission
(UGC) on March 21, DU has implemented the semester system for
undergraduate students.

DUTA has been opposing the semester system for a long
time but matters came to a head when Vice Chancellor Deepak
Pental had approved the new curricula for 12 science courses
at the academic council meeting last month.
