NSUI Protest: On Tuesday, the National Students Union of India (NSUI) organized a protest over the Delhi government’s directive to 12 Delhi University colleges. These DU colleges are fully funded by them. However, the protest was related to pay outstanding salaries to staff from the Students Society Fund.
Neeraj Kundan, NSUI National President stated that the student’s fund is a portion of fees collected from students. As per the University rules, student funds cannot be utilized for paying salaries to teachers.
He said, on one hand, the Delhi government says that it apportions such a high financial plan for education and on the other, here, it isn’t prepared to give grants for payment of salaries. They demand that the request be disavowed and government discharges grants to these Colleges.
On Friday, the Delhi government supervised the 12 DU colleges fully funded by it to pay outstanding salaries to employees from the Students Society Fund. A step censured by DU’s teachers’ cell and authorities of the University.
It has authorized a special audit of 6 colleges namely Maharishi Valmiki B Ed College, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Bhagini Nivedita College, Aditi Mahavidyalaya, Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies.
12 DU Colleges fully funded by the government have been secured a tussle over the arrival of grants, with the last saying they have been not able to pay compensations to staff members for almost three months attributable to non-arrival of funds.
