'Anti-education' system: University professors up in arms against funding policy

The Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) marched from Mandi House to Parliament on Wednesday, March 28, to dissuade the Union Government from privatising the University. The 'People’s March', in defence of public-funded higher education, was supported by students, and members of Jawaharlal Nehru University Teachers Association (JNUTA) also joined it. The agitation has grown in size and form ever since the University Grants Commission (UGC) planned to tone down its funding, by making colleges autonomous and introducing the 30:70 formula.

Under this plan, 70 per cent of the finances would come from the Commission and the rest from other sources, such as private funding or internal generation.
