Delhi University is all set to have a new law centre at Dwarka after the Executive Council (EC) passed the necessary building project proposals earlier this week.
The proposals include development of a new academic building at the law faculty complex along with a new girls’ hostel at Mukherjee Nagar.
The new campus at Dwarka’s Sector 22 has been approved by the financial committee with an allocation of Rs 60.36 crore.
Several Key Issues Discussed
The EC meeting which lasted for nearly 12 hours tackled several issues:
- The council meeting has decided to put on hold the creation of a new post for North Campus director after several members expressed their opposition to it.
- The meeting took up the promotion and absorption of guest teachers.
- The meeting’s agenda also included the renovation of the kitchen in vice chancellor’s residence for a sum of Rs 3 crore.
One of the EC members Rajesh Jha, said that the members had protested against this expenditure, demanding that the funds instead be used for physics and chemical labs.
- The issue of skill enhancement course (SEC) economics paper for BA (P) in semester 6 was also taken up in the meeting according to Jha.
So far , the students of BA (P) choosing economics had no syllabus set for them to study for the sixth semester under SEC. According to officials the syllabus had not been created by teachers, which had caused issues for the students.
Typically after a syllabus is developed, it needs to be sent to the EC for approval.
