Delhi High Court Thursday issued notice to the Delhi University vice chancellor, the University Grants Commission and the central government on the implementation of the semester system in the varsity’s arts stream for 2011-12.
The division bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Sanjeev Khanna said: “Issue notice to all the respondents. The matter will be heard on May 11.”
A group of university teachers approached the Delhi High Court challenging the university’s April 19 notification for implementation of the semester system in the arts stream for 2011-12.
The teachers’ union also demanded quashing of the notification.
As of now, there are 13 courses, including physics, chemistry, botany and zoology, which follow the semester system in the university.
