The varsity has also put in place strict measures to check ragging on its campuses. "All colleges have been asked to form anti-ragging squads and we have established two control rooms to deal with such complaints,” a senior varsity official said.

"The students are advised to use public transport and raise the issue with authorities if they are subjected to any form of ragging on campus," the official added.

All the three under-graduate classes of the University will follow different course structures this time.

While the first year will study as per CBCS, the second year will continue with the normal semester system of the university and the third year will be studying under the now defunct Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP) batch.

To facilitate the smooth implementation of the CBCS, varsity has constituted a CBCS Oversight Committee (CBCS-OC) to be headed by the Dean, Faculty of Science and whose members include several Deans as well as some Principals.

Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal greeted the DU students on the first day of their new academic session.

"I greet all students of Delhi University on their first day of college. Reminds of my student days some 30 years ago!," he tweeted.
The admissions to the undergraduate programmes are still underway and the varsity is expected to come out with another cut-off list to accommodate more DU aspirants.
