These rules for PhD will be applicable from the academic session 2023-2024,” it added


  • Apart from these, the eligibility condition and seat matrix recommendations of the Medical Science Courses Admission Committee (MCAC) for admission to undergraduate (MBBS/BDS) courses for the academic session 2023-2024 were also approved in the EC. MSc admission to the Respiratory Therapy programme will also be under CUET (PG)-2023.  Meanwhile, the resolution to set up the Centre for Independence and Partition Studies, passed in the 1014th Academic Council meeting of the university, was also approved on Friday.


  • During the Executive Council meeting, several other resolutions were passed. The establishment of the Centre for Independence and Partition Studies, which aims to research and shed light on lesser-known heroes and events of the freedom movement, as well as the partition of India, was approved. The formation of a Tribal Studies Centre, focusing on various tribes in India, and the establishment of a Hindu Studies Centre, which will offer a Master of Arts program in Hindu studies, were also given the green light.


  • Furthermore, the Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP) course will be introduced from the academic session 2023-24 as a four-year pilot project.


  • Du’s Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Mahila College, Mata Sundari Mahila Mahavidyalaya, and Jesus and Mary College have received approval from the NCTE to offer ITEP from the session 2023-2024.
