North Eastern Hill University: Even after 45 days for the new academic session, at least 22 of the 75 colleges affiliated to the North Eastern Hill University in Meghalaya have still not been shifted to the 4-year undergraduate course, officials said on Tuesday. and the teachers' union is actively resisting university pressure for this course. Meghalaya Teachers College Association (MCTA) general secretary Dr Airpeace W Rani informed that 22 colleges affiliated to the university are boycotting first semester classes and not taking any assignments under the new policy.
The association has petitioned Vice-Chancellor Prof PS Shukla to withdraw the July 12 notification mandating the implementation of NEP 2020 in all affiliated colleges. "We made a representation on July 21 and since he remained silent, we started the ongoing non-cooperation movement from August 1," Rani said. According to the MCTA leader, the way to end this impasse is for the VC to withdraw this notification and go back to the old 6 semester syllabus.
Rani said, "We have been on agitation for almost a month. We request the VC to withdraw this notification and end the impasse." The MCTA said that the July 12 notification claimed that the decision to implement the NEP was taken as per the decision of the 110th Academic Council of NEHU and approved by the Executive Council. However, Rani said that nothing has been mentioned on the implementation of NEP 2020 in the proceedings of the Academic Council.
