FCRA registrations cancelled for DU and JNU


The FCRA registrations of Delhi University and JNU have been cancelled for alleged violation of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act 2010, leaving both the universities in a lurch.

This may cause disruption in the offer of fellowships for international seminars and programmes to students as well as the Memorandum of Understanding, that each has signed with the foreign institutes/universities.

The major cause of concern, however, is whether DU and JNU fall under FCRA. A document by the Ministry of Home Affairs does state that all statutory bodies established under a Central Act and audi ted by the Comptroller & Auditor General of India are exempted from all the provisions of FCRA 2010.

It is highly likely that this decision will affect Delhi University largely as it has several collaborations with foreign institutions including MoUs with over 50 universities. This however, does not mean that DU receives funds from them. For instance, the Department of Germanic and Romance Studies has agreements with at least 10 European universities but in no case does a university send funds to India.

The de-licensing has caused about 971 organisations to be stripped of their registration since the month of May under the FCRA. The premiere non-profit bodies that have hit the list are the Supreme Court Bar Association, Indian Law Institute, Gujarat National Law University, School of Planning and Architecture, Escorts Heart Institute among others.

The joint registrar of Delhi University has decided to use the University Grants Commission’s Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) in scoring in examinations in place of percentage score. The Joint Registrar of academics in DU informed all the colleges On April 29 that they must kick their preparation off to implement CBCS from the next educational session.

The decision emerged following a meeting between the deans of the colleges and the Vice-Chancellor of DU, Dinesh Singh on April 23 in which the Executive Council of the university affiliated to to go ahead with CBCS for 19 B.A and B.Sc courses.

A few months ago, the faculties of DU colleges objected the implementation of the CBCS, saying that it will be difficult for the University to accommodate with three different systems for each academic year- CBCS in the first year, semester system in the second year and the FYUP in the third year.

According to the UGC, whose key plan is the opening of choice based credit system to allow students to transfer across universities in India and overseas also. This system will be no character translation problem or discrepancy scheme in scoring among universities. This enables students to choose courses that they love to learn at their own pace, to take additional courses for additional credits and adopt an interactive approach to learning.

The UGC has taken a number of steps to improve the efficiency and excellence in higher education, and this has led to significant improvements in the standards of education. But as a consequence of the universities in India after evaluating various systems, students experience the receipt of their credentials across the University system, as well as employment agencies.

In order to solve this problem, guidelines for the adoption of a unified credit system have been proposed. The credits obtained by students can be transferred and this would help them in case they need to migrate from one College to another.
