New Delhi, Jun 10 (PTI) Delhi University's ambitious document envisaging its plan to "continue to cut" the financial support from the government and develop innovative financial strategies for sustainability in the next 25 years has caused a furore, with a section of teachers terming it a "clear blueprint for privatisation".

The document -- Envisage DU 2047 (25-year strategic plan) -- was presented before the Executive Council (EC) on Friday for approval, but was deferred by Vice Chancellor Yogesh Singh after members raised issues over certain portions of it.

However, Singh clarified that there is no plan for privatisation. "I deferred it and asked to make the required amendments," the VC told PTI over the phone.
