MPhil PROGRAM OF DELHI UNIVERSITY

Key Point:

  • The decision to scrap the MPhil programme will only be executed in the 2022-23 academic session, and will not affect the current batch.

42-member High Powered Committee:

  • The decision to withdraw MPhil was first approved by a 42-member High Powered Committee led by the then Acting Vice-Chancellor and made up of a number of senior officials in August last year.

Background:

  • The Committee stated that the existing M.Phil. program was recommended to be suspended for the 2022-23 academic year in line with NEP 2020. 
  • Recommendations were received and decided at the long-term meeting of the Education Council (AC) in the same month. 
  • There were 16 dissents, but the proposal was passed, and later, DU's Executive Council (EC) agreed.
  • The decision was announced in January 2022.

What does NEP say about MPhil?

  • The National Education Policy document simply states that the MPhil program should be stopped. The document does not provide a reason for it.
