DU College Canteens: The shutdown invited problem for many:

Ritesh Wadhwa and his father used to run the canteen at the College of Vocational Studies (CVS) for seven years. Thus, they were content with their work and never looked for any backup. But, after the shutdown for more than a year, the Wadhwa duo is facing enormous problems. The son drives an Uber motorcycle which is barely sufficient to survive.

Wadhwa explains that he tried his best to keep nine of his workers employed and even paid them a salary for three months after the shutdown. But, even his own situation deteriorated and he has to work 12-13 hours per day only to earn 300-500.

DU RECRUITMENT 2021: SPM COLLEGE RECRUITMENT FOR NON TEACHING POSTS

Kapil Panwar, the canteen manager at Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Science is also suffering now. 18 of his workers returned to their villages due to the unavailability of work. Also, he has been sitting at homes since 6 months and all of his saving is over. Brijesh Kumar worked in Kirorimal College canteen for 2 years. But, during this pandemic, he works as a daily wage laborer. Thus, the economic condition of workers at DU college canteens has deteriorated tremendously with no future hopes.

DUTA’s efforts for the workers:

The DU teachers’ association has written to the University Grants Commission on assisting the contract workers. Thus, additional aid should be given to the contract workers who worked at colleges. This way the DU college canteen workers can get some help to sustain themselves.
