Delhi University teachers’ orgaisations unhappy with batch sizes for UG, PG courses

Delhi University has notified the number of students in each batch for undergraduate and postgraduate courses, a move that has drawn flak from teachers’ organisations for what they called bigger-than-ideal batch sizes.

According to the notification sent to colleges on November 11, the DU has fixed 60 students per batch for lectures, 30 for tutorials and 25 for practical classes in undergraduate programmes. For postgraduate courses, the numbers per batch are 50, 25 and 15-20, respectively.

Registrar Vikas Gupta said the university came up with the rule to observe uniformity in the teacher-student ratio across all the programmes it offers.

These numbers do not include the supernumerary seats, which constitute five per cent of the total strength, and are allocated to students from sports and other quotas.
