Banaras Hindu University is proceed with the Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP). Recently the vice –Chancellor of the university expressed the opinion that the Indian education system is outdated and 3+2 education system needs to be restructured.
“The Vice Chancellor also asserted that there so many central universities are not needed and the increasing number is just reducing their status equivalent to those of "polytechnics" said the VC.
"The existing institutional structures do not suit our needs and aspirations. Our higher education system is an outmoded construct. New challenges require restructuring. Why cannot we have a 4+1 or a 2+3 system instead of the present 3+2 higher education system," Tripathi said, while addressing the gathering at the 30th foundation day of IGNOU.
"Universities wage a constant battle with academic dishonesty in both research and generating favourable learning outcomes. We need to move beyond score hunting programmes and ivory towers to the realities of demand and supply in a globalised world," he added.
However, he also pitched that the education system should also maintain a connection between higher education system and our ancient heritage and culture in order to strengthen accreditation and quality.
