"Delhi University needs to revert to pre-FYUP and begin admissions,” a senior UGC official said.

The development came after a day of hectic negotiations between the varsity and UGC over the compromise proposal drawn up by a group of academicians.
    
While UGC accepted all but one proposal, there were some legal issues which came in the way and, hence, it was seeking the views of legal experts.

Delhi University had on Thursday sent a six-point proposal, suggested by a group of academicians, to UGC in response to its ultimatum about immediately starting the admission process.

"The University is of the opinion that given the situation where admissions are being delayed, time is the essence and hence this blended proposal submitted by some eminent persons to the UGC and Delhi University may provide the necessary way forward,” the Delhi University had said in the letter.

Ever since UGC directed DU to roll back FYUP and conduct admission under three-year programme, there has been uncertainty over the admission process that involves the fate of over 2.7 lakh students clamouring for 54,000 seats in 64 colleges.
