DUTA strike has once again started. Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) commenced a three-day strike over non-payment of outstanding salaries. The authorities have not paid salaries of teaching and non-teaching staff who work in government-aided colleges.
On Wednesday, DUTA members called for the strike, raising the issue of delay in delivering grants to 12 delhi-government-sponsored colleges.
Due to this, eight teachers at Delhi University moved to Delhi High Court. They asked the High Court to direct authorities to pay the salaries of around 1500 teaching and non-teaching staff members.
The High Court will summon the court over this matter on 17th September 2020.
Delhi Government, however, asserted that out of 12 colleges, the authority has granted funds to 6 colleges. The authority is encountering some financial irregularities for the remaining six colleges. That’s why they are auditing their account. Without this, no more funds can be given to the colleges.
DUTA puts the concerns over social media handles with #delhigovernmentreleasegrants. Due to the ongoing strike, teachers have suspended classes till Friday.
From the past five months, teachers of 12 DU colleges did not receive their payment. Also, they are teaching the students without any payment amid the coronavirus pandemic.
DUTA asked the students to stand in solidarity and support the movement.
