The Delhi University is likely to table a proposal to extend the validity for two of its MPhil in Clinical Psychology and Psychiatric Social Work till the academic session in 2025-26, in partial relaxation to the UGC's notification to discontinue MPhil courses as per the recommendations of NEP 2020. The proposal is likely to be placed before the university's executive council for consideration in a meeting slated for March 8. According to the agenda for the meeting, the varsity last year had written to the University Grants Commission (UGC) for resumption of MPhil at the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences (IHBAS) as an interim arrangement in the interest of students and patient care till necessary final decision is taken by the Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI). The university took the initiative after the dean of the university's Faculty of Medical Science expressed apprehension over the matter. "Taking cognisance of the apprehensions made by the faculty of medical science dean, vide its letter dated August 11, 2023 followed by another dated October 6, 2023 addressed to the UGC secretary sought the direction of the commission for resumption of MPhil (Clinical Psychology) Course at IHBAS," the agenda document read.
