On July 31, Delhi government ordered a freeze on funding of 28 Delhi University colleges — that are either fully or partially funded by it — following the varsity’s failure to appoint governing bodies since months.
Have ordered Fin Department to stop funding, as Du colleges are not willing to have governdelhi governmenting bodies for last 10 months, said by Sisodia. He also added that “He cannot allow unchecked corruption to be sustained in the name of education”. The varsity have not had full governing bodies since October 2016. This is the first time that the bodies were not given a three-month extension. In February, DU had sent a panel of names to Delhi Government following which the AAP dispensation had sent the Governing Body list in March, for approval by Executive Council (EC). However, no decision has been taken yet in this regard by DU.
The government had earlier this month threatened to stop the funding if DU failed to constitute Governing Bodies (GBs) by July 31.
