Delhi University has set up a seven member committee to propose and suggest changes in the system by introduction of the choice based credit scheme.

The committee which is headed by Dr. Sunil Sodhi, the principal of Maharaja Agrasen College, is set to look into the curriculum and suggest changes in the examination and assessment system while also looking into the introduction of the credit based equivalence.

Other members of the panel are P Hemlatha Reddy, Principal of Sri Venketeswara College, Manoj Sinha, the Aryabhatta College Principal, Manoj Saxena of the Department of Economics at Deen Dayal Upadhyay College, AK Baghi from the Department of Chemistry at Dyal Singh College and Virender Bhardwaj of the Department of Hindi at Shivaji College. 

The University Grants Commission (UGC) had recently written to all universities directing them to implement the scheme to allow students ‘seamless mobility’ across universities following which Vice Chancellor of Delhi University appointed a seven member committee. 

The committee will draft a discussion paper on key issues such as revision required in the curriculum, examination and assessment systems and ensuring of credit equivalence. It will also deliberate upon the grading pattern, process of setting question papers, accountability of evaluators, credits for each subject or paper and guidelines for credit transfer.

The committee is expected to submit its report by the next month after which the final call will be taken. According to Smriti Irani, the Union HRD Minister, the implementation of the system will be carried on from next academic session. This system is going to be of great help to those who wish to immigrate from one university to another.
