 Delhi University Says Honours Course can Revert Back to Three-Year Format
Coming under increasing pressure to roll back its decision to extend Honours courses to four years, the Delhi University said that it can revert back to the three-year format when it comes to Honours courses though B.Tech course can continue to be a four year one.

Delhi University's media coordinator Malay Neerav today said in a press conference that the varsity has sent a proposal to the University Grants Commission (UGC) regarding the same and a response was awaited from the UGC.

UGC Chairman Ved Prakash, who today met Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani, refused to take questions over the ongoing controversy.

Students, however, continue to suffer as admissions into the University continue to be at a halt for the third consecutive day.

The first cut-off list for admissions was supposed to come out on Tuesday but was deferred following the UGC's directive to the University to dispense with the Four Year Undergraduate Programme.
