DU students take out march demanding rollback of FYUP

January 19, 2023

Hundreds of Delhi University students held a march on Thursday, demanding a rollback of the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) on Thursday, a statement by the All India Student Association claimed.

During the march, called by the AISA, students demanded rollback of the FYUP, addition of English to AEC options, non-dilution of courses and putting a stop to fee hike, it said.

“Hundreds of first-year DU students gathered in the North Campus in response to AISA’s call for a march against FYUP,” the statement said.

The FYUP has been implemented under the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020 in the Delhi University.

In the new course structure, credit scores have been introduced for every course, and students will have the option to pursue either a three-year honours course or four years honours course with or without research.

“This failure of FYUP is not just on the level of implementation, but corruption on the level of principle. The government is telling us that education is no more for the people, but for profits,” said Abhigyan, Delhi AISA president.

The students raised concerns over extension of one more year for Honours degree , the imposition of a Compulsory Hindi test that has not gone well with the first-year students and irrelevant courses like Fit India, Yoga, Ayurveda which have been offered.

“This fight against FYUP is a decisive fight for the nature and spirit of education in the country,” claimed N Sachin, a DU professor, who also spoke on the status of public education under the Modi government during the march.
