In a press conference organised on Monday, DUTA's president Aditya Narayan Mishra said, "Vice Chancellor Prof Deepak Pental has been consistently flouting all the norms in statutory decision making on the issue of Semester system at the under graduate level. The VC is just saying that he wants to implement the system but where is our right."

DU's Vice chancellor has already implemented the system for all the subjects of Science stream from the coming session. For which a tentative time table has already been prepared by the University.

But if the teachers decide to not to participate in the admission process it will become an administrative headache for the college principals. As, once the application process is done, teachers are involved in the admission process. After which lists are prepared according to the elligibility criteria and the first-cut-off is declared, DUTA says the process requires a lot of experience.

Meanwhile, the DUTA has also said that they will not boycott the process completely and will evaluate the exam papers of the entrance for admission in English Honours, as it will create problems for students.
