"The UGC had issued notice to DU and directed scrapping of the FYUP, which was introduced last year."
New Delhi, June 24 - Delhi University Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh resigned Tuesday, days after the UGC told him to scrap the controversial four-year undergraduate course (FYUP), an official said.

Dinesh Singh has sent his resignation to the human resource development ministry, Joint Dean Malay Neerav told the media.

The resignation came amid a row between the University Grants Commission (UGC) and Delhi University over scrapping the FYUP, leaving the future of 2.7 lakh applicants seeking admission this year in the lurch.

The UGC had issued notice to DU and directed scrapping of the FYUP, which was introduced last year.

It also directed DU to enrol new applicants under the previous three-year undergraduate course, failing which the commission warned of freezing funds to the university.
