The Delhi University Teachers Association, DUTA demands Delhi University administration to bring up nearly 5,000 permanent appointments of ad hoc teachers in various DU colleges.
The procedure and planning for the promotion of Delhi University teachers were also proposed before the DU administration on Wednesday. A committee of teachers put forward these problems in a conference with Professor PC Joshi, Delhi University Vice-Chancellor.
The DUTA told DU VC that the members’ names of the DU governing body have not been received by the six government-funded colleges of DU. Delhi University administration was to send the names of the members to these colleges. Due to the delay in submission, the governing bodies of DU colleges have not been established in these six colleges.
It stressed that the present vice-chancellor intervenes soon in the substance. The names of members of the DU colleges governing body have not been sent to Kalindi College, Maharishi Valmiki College, Aditi Mahavidyalaya College, Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Deendayal Upadhyay college, and Lakshmibai College for the last six months.
The functioning vice-chancellor, he added, was further informed that since the last decade over 3,000 teachers have not received any promotion due to which they are bearing a loss of thousands of rupees every month. Approximately 5,000 ad-hoc teachers have been educating in various DU colleges for a long time. Apart from this, over 800 posts of associate professors, guest professors, and permanent professors have to be offered in various DU departments.
Due to the non-appointment of professors in various DU departments, researchers have been confronting problems in appointing research managers, and also the research work is bearing a huge loss.
Hansraj said that the issue is prevailing in science departments where very few research administrators have been assigned outside the department.
As per the Delhi University teachers’ association, Joshi has said the procedure for appointment of permanent teachers and the assistant processors for various colleges and departments will be commenced soon.
Out of the 28, fully funded Delhi University colleges, governing bodies for six colleges are not yet formed. The names of six members that were proposed by the six colleges of DU were being opposed. The Delhi government sent these six new to DU VC, however, the University reportedly did not send these names of the members to its colleges which is now inflicting difficulties in the formation of governing bodies.
