DU’s Gyanodaya Express to be discontinued?
Delhi University’s college on wheels project - Gyanodaya Express - might be discontinued this year with the varsity still exploring funding options for the biannual educational trips. The project was started in 2012 by former V-C Dinesh Singh, who demitted office last month after completion of his controversial tenure. No such trip has been organised by the university in 2015 so far.
In 2012, Singh’s idea had received flak from the varsity’s teachers association who claimed it to be “illegally functioning” as the UGC had not sanctioned any funds for the same.
