NEW DELHI, INDIA, March 31, 2001: None of the universities in Delhi seem to be interested in the new Jyotisha or Vedic Astrology course introduced this year. The process of formulation of the new course began in June 2000 and has been on-going. The syllabus has yet to be chalked out. Out of the proposals received, the UGC will set up an expert committee to screen the universities. They will further decide which universities have the credentials, the requisite infrastructure and the resources for such a course before it is awarded. Universities of Kurukshetra, Shimla, Meerut, Gwalior, Indore, Ranchi and Mysore among others have applied for the course. Birla Institute of Technology, Pilani and Ranchi have also applied, said Dr.Gautam of the University Grants Commission. "Here it is important to note that all these are non-traditional and non-Sanskrit universities," he added.
