The New Delhi Government has made a 7 member committee that will look into the utilization and management of funds of 12 Delhi University colleges. So, as per the official statement, the committee was formed on Monday, 17th January 2022.
These 12 DU colleges are funded by the Delhi Government, i.e. the Aam Aadmi Party dispensation. But, the tussle between the Delhi government and the administration of these 12 DU colleges over the release of grants has been long. Hence, the new committee formed by the city Government has been directed to submit its reports within 15 days. Thus, as per orders, these reports have to come by 2nd February 2022.

Colleges are eager to extract funds from the Delhi Government:
The DU teachers association (DUTA) organized a one-day strike recently. Thus, this protest was against the non-payment of salaries to teachers by the Delhi Government. Also, one of the DUTA members said that the funds should be released immediately. Many teachers are suffering from no salaries and the city government is responsible for it.
