JNU Lecturers Allege New Tutorial Calendar Being Imposed By Diktat

New Delhi:

The Jawaharlal Nehru College Lecturers Affiliation (JNUTA) on Monday alleged that the brand new tutorial calendar despatched for approval to the college’s tutorial council is being “imposed by diktat”. It claimed that the calendar proposed by the JNU registrar has components which have “retrospective effect” and would adversely impression each college students and academics. “The JNUTA rejects the calendar that has no consideration for the academics and the process by which it is being sought to be pushed through. The registrar of JNU had written to the members of the Academic Council informing them that an agenda to consider the academic calendar 2020-21 for the continuing and new students is enclosed and they should convey their approval by mail by October 20,” JNUTA president DK Lobiyal stated in an announcement.

It stated {that a} request for consideration may result in disagreement with the proposed calendar or various opinions on it. “However, the possibilities have been ruled out not only in the language of the letter but also the process through which such ‘approval’ is being sought. It has been reduced to mere formality where statutory bodies are expected to merely rubber stamp for something which has already decided by the university,” the assertion added.

The academics’ affiliation famous how based on the proposed calendar, courses for persevering with college students had been to “commence” from the second week of September 2020 and the final date for including and dropping of programs was October 4. “What happens to the duration of the monsoon semester in different centres if this starting date was not actually the one in practice everywhere. Neither did the administration ascertain how many continuing students had not managed to take their examinations and would need to take them when the University reopened,” the JNUTA claimed.

Speaking in regards to the sequencing of the monsoon and winter semesters of 2020-21 within the proposed calendar, the affiliation stated that if applied, it could imply that many academics could be educating repeatedly with none break or trip as much as the tip of the educational yr 2021-22 and neither would any of the batches of scholars get any important break between semesters.

“This is because the lack of concurrence of the semesters for the continuing and fresh students has been increased beyond what has become inevitable. So, for continuing students, the two semesters are compressed into the nine-month period from September to May, which comes on the back of a conclusion of the winter semester for most students in September,” it stated.

“On the other hand, for the new students being admitted in 2020-21, classes are to begin only in December and the two semesters have to be concluded by July 2021 – a period of just 8 months,” it added.
