DELHI UNIVERSITY TEACHERS ASSOCIATION FILED A PETITION IN DELHI HC
In the petition, it was mentioned that apart from teachers, there are many employees including teaching and non-teaching staff. They did not get their salary from the last four months. Eight teachers filed their petition through advocate Kumar Utkarsh. They said that they are the members of the Delhi University Teachers Association(DUTA). On behalf of the aggrieved staff, they wrote to the Delhi Government to release funds for the affiliated 12 DU colleges to pay salaries to 1,500 teachers and non-teaching staff working there.
DELHI UNIVERSITY TEACHERS SUFFERING FROM MENTAL AGONY AND HARASSMENT
In the plea, it was mentioned that due to non-payment of salary, teachers and all other employees working in those 12 colleges funded by the government are suffering from mental agony and harassment. Authority is not justifying the reason to employees about their non-payment of fees. The actions are violative of Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India that reads the provisions of the Delhi University Act, 1922. Also, it is unjust, unfair, unconstitutional, discriminatory, and unethical.
DU COLLEGES FUNDED BY DELHI GOVERNMENT
The 12 colleges of DU that are funded by the Delhi Government are Acharya Narendra Dev College, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar College, Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences, Bhagini Nivedita College, Aditi Mahavidyalaya Women’s College, Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences for Women, Indira Gandhi Institute of Physical Education & Sports Sciences, Maharaja Agrasen College (DU), Maharshi Valmiki College of Education, and Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies.
