Delhi University (DU) has approved the implementation of the Centre's ambitious National Education Policy (NEP) at its executive council meeting which was held on Tuesday (31 August), reports Economic Times.
The executive council is the highest decision-making body of the DU.
According to DU's Registrar Vikas Gupta, the implementation of NEP will begin from the 2022-23 academic session.
The executive council has also approved the implementation of a four-year undergraduate programme in DU. It also approved a multiple entry/exit scheme (MEES), where students will be able to enter and exit the programme at various stages, and the Academic Bank of Credit (ABC).
Meanwhile, it should also be noted that three members of the executive council had dissented against the implementation of NEP in DU. The Delhi Teachers' Association (DUTA) also held an online protest against NEP implementation.
The NEP had received the Union Cabinet's approval on 29 July last year. It replaces the previous NEP, 1986.
