Professors across India says that UGC's decision of 3 years course is enough
The row over the four year course at Delhi University has left the students confused and uncertain about their future. The University Grants Commission (UGC) has taken a tough stand and asked Delhi University and all its colleges to conduct admissions only under the three-year undergraduate programme and not under the controversial FYUP (Four Year Undergraduate Plan).

Its was just last year when the UGC (which runs under the government) has changed the course curriculum from three to four years saying it is beneficial for those students, who want to study abroad as they need 16 years of schooling, which the 10+2+4 system and will further help the Indian students to meet the requirements of the international education system.

Now, with this controversy the fate of Delhi University aspirants is hanging in the balance. We talked to few professors of different universities to know about the technicalities in the graduation program and exact time period required to complete the graduation. Here are the their views:

Professor RP Singh, Banaras Hindu University

"See gaining knowledge is an endless process, whether it is 2 years, 3 years or 4 years the aim should be to make the students understand what they are learning. Increasing or decreasing the course duration is always an experiment and should be done carefully. But according to me a three years course is enough in the graduation period. Nowadays every scene is being politicized and DU and UGC are taking it as their prestige issue. "

Professor Sudhir Panwar, Lucknow University

"Whether it is a 3 yrs course or 4 years course, the course content is important. In the four years course their is no content, they just made it to match the UK and US standards. The course was not designed accordingly. According to me three years graduation program is enough for the students." 

A professor from JNU who does not want himself to be named

"I think three years program is enough for graduation, their was no need to push it for four years. The sooner the students gets a degree, the sooner they can go for a job." 

Professor Kaberi Chakrabarti, Culcutta University

"Course duration mainly depends on the content of the syllabus and the pattern of teaching. And I think three years duration was enough to incorporate the course."
