SummaryThe four-day deadlock over admission to Delhi University's undergraduate course ended today with Vice Chancellor

"victory" and thanked the UGC for intervening in the matter.

DUTA President Nandita Narain said it was a victory for the university community who had been fighting for more than a year against the "unacademic and illegal" FYUP.

"We expect that immediate guidelines will be issued to colleges to publish the pre-FYUP courses on their website along with the number of seats per course.

"Emergency Staff Council meetings should be convened at the earliest and cut-offs announced based on past experience without inviting fresh applications," she added.

Officials in the HRD ministry who participated in prolonged meetings during the week to resolve the deadlock looked relaxed and had a free-wheeling interaction with reporters. UGC Chairman Ved Prakash was taken ill because of "exhaustion".

But for some uncertainity and confusion continued.

Students enrolled in the four-year B.Tech courses staged a protest outside the UGC office here demanding that their course should not be changed to a three-year programme.
