The University of Delhi has 20 colleges where the post of permanent principals lie vacant for a long time. All of these colleges are entirely funded by the Delhi government directly and don’t even have a governing body. Hence, on one side the varsity is releasing a 100 percent cut-off in several colleges while on the other side some colleges are still struggling for permanent principals.

Thus, the list continues with the names of Delhi University colleges that do not have a permanent principal. Also, in some of these colleges, acting officers are appointed for special duties. So, these officers will be working for five or more years. As per the University Grant Commission (UGC) guidelines, the tenure of any principal should not exceed 5 years. But, here these officers are holding their positions even after the expiry of their term.
The governing body is responsible for filling the position of permanent principals:
A former member of DU’s Academic Council, Hansraj Suman says that the administration is continuously giving extensions to the government bodies in these 20 colleges. Also, most of these colleges have put up advertisements for principal’s positions. However, none of them has a governing body to implement it. It is to be noted that the term of such governing bodies expired on 13th September 2021. But, the varsity gave them a three-month extension yet again.
Also, for the vacant posts of permanent principals, the administration will send circulars seeking appointments.
