Rs 12.06 crores has been released by the Delhi government to the six Delhi University colleges that are fully funded by it. However, it has been alleged by the Delhi University Teachers’ Association that the 12 colleges which are funded by the Delhi government have proved to be inadequate for the colleges.
The DUTA had said that the Delhi government had released grants in aid to Delhi University colleges for paying salaries in three installments for the final installment for the financial year 2019-2020 towards salaries from January to March. Two installments of the financial year 2020-21 are also to be made in this grant.
The DUTA also said that one release of each of these installments, it was brought to the notice of the Government of Delhi that the grants sanctioned were not enough to cover salaries for the above-mentioned periods and highly inadequate.
The colleges have not received any grant-in-aid for the months of June, July, or August, said DUTA.
But according to the data shared by the Delhi government, Rs 2.70 crore was released to Acharya Narendra Dev College, Rs 1.95 crore to Maharaja Agrasen College, Rs 1.80 crore to Bhaskaracharya College, Rs 1.49 crore to Indira Gandhi Institute of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Rs 2.48 crore to BR Ambedkar College, and Rs 1.64 crore to Shaheed Rajguru College.
The AAP dispensation and the Delhi University have been locked in a tussle over the formation of governing bodies in 28 colleges fully or partially funded by the government.
The varsity had said, in a statement released last month, the governing bodies of 12 colleges have been formed in accordance with the DU rules.
