On 18 July, Delhi University teachers called off their 55-day-long boycott of the evaluation of undergraduate exams.

The General Body (GB) of Delhi University teachers Association (DUTA) on Monday ratified the decision of the teachers to end the boycott, claiming that the ministry and UGC officials agreed to set up a committee to consider their demands.

"The General Body noted that negotiations have begun and the administration has agreed to our minimal demands of setting up a committee to resolve our long-standing issues. In this context, to continue a sustainable movement to ensure resolution of pending matters, the teachers resolved to withdraw the boycott of evaluations and boycott of Staff Council Committees," an official statement said.

Teachers were boycotting the evaluation of undergraduate examinations since 24 May to protest against the amendments to UGC regulations - which they claimed would lead to job-cuts to the tune of 50% and would drastically decrease the pupil-teacher ratio in higher education.
