new Delhi. Delhi Teachers Association (DTA) on Saturday wrote a letter to Delhi University Visitor President Ramnath Kovind and Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Ninshak seeking amendment in the DU Act-1922 to open new colleges and universities here.
The DTA said in a letter written on Saturday that due to high cut-off in Delhi University, most of the students of Delhi are not able to get admission. In such a situation, the Delhi government wants to establish new colleges and universities, but that is possible only when the Delhi University Act-1922 is amended.
Prof. in charge of DTA Hansraj Suman has written in the letter that the DU Act – 1922 should be amended by passing a resolution in Parliament as the law made by the British has been in operation for the last 98 years. According to our constitution and Indian environment, we should amend it and make an act. In the letter, Professor Suman has told that Delhi University (Central University) was established in the capital Delhi in 1922 before independence. At that time there was British rule in the country, so they created the Delhi University Act – 1922 and since then this act has been implemented. It is clearly written in this act that if a new college opens in Delhi, then it can take the affiliation from Delhi University only.
He said that not a single new college has been opened by the University of Delhi for the last 30 years, while the Delhi government wants to open new colleges here due to the problem of increasing student admissions in Delhi.
Suman said that due to high cut-off in Delhi University, students of Delhi are not able to get admission in colleges of Delhi University, they are forced to take admission in other states or in private educational institutions and universities. He says that while the parents of the students are under stress regarding the admission of their children, there has been a lot of stress in the fees and students forced to live in rented houses in other states.
