Delhi University is gearing up for its orientation programme of the students, but put some strict measures as to check ragging on its campuses. There was joy and enthusiasm at the DU campus after the University released their 6th cut-off list recently. The colleges are ready for the session with the orientation schedules and timetables. All the three under-graduate classes of the University will follow different course structures this time, reveals an official of the University. “The fresh batch of undergraduate students will be the first to study as per the new CBCS (Choice Based Credit System.) While, the second year will continue with the normal semester system of the university and the third year will be studying under the now defunct Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP), informs the same official. To facilitate the smooth implementation of the CBCS, varsity has constituted a CBCS Oversight Committee (CBCS-OC) to be headed by the Dean, Faculty of Science and whose members include several Deans as well as some Principals. To greet Freshers, Vice Chancellor, Dinesh Singh will be visiting a few colleges today. “All colleges have been asked to form anti-ragging squads and we have established two control rooms to deal with such complaints”, said Vice Chancellor. "Officials from Delhi Police and DTC have been taken on board to check incidents of ragging," a senior varsity official said. Principal, Miranda House, said, "Our timetables and orientation details have already been posted on our website. Our orientation programme will include a brief about the rules and policies of the college and various activities." Principal, Deen Dayal Upadhyay College said, "The students will be informed about the mechanism to check ragging so they know whom to contact in case of any problem and do not face inconvenience.” While other colleges will hold the orientation tomorrow, St Stephens' college had their orientation programme on Monday. However, admissions to the undergraduate programmes are still underway and the varsity is expected to come out with another cut-off list to accommodate more DU aspirants.
