The University Grants Commission has issued a set of instructions to the college principals to recruit OBC quota for non-teaching posts lying vacant in Delhi University colleges. These orders have been issued by AS Sajwan, the Under Secretary of the University Grants Commission (UGC).
Delhi University College principals have been given time till 31 December 2021 to fill these vacant posts. Within this time frame, applicants belonging to the OBC category will be recruited for the vacant posts. The UGC has made it clear that after the expansion plan, the deadline for recruitment will no longer be extended.
AS Sajwan has further said that the DU principals had sought permission for the deadline to fill non-academic sanctioned posts under the OBC expansion plan.
On this matter, Dr. Hansraj Suman, in-charge of the Delhi Teachers Association (DTA), the teacher organization of the Aam Adami Party, expressed contentment. He has said that principals of colleges should remove advertisements to fill these posts. He has told that a letter was written to the UGC / MHRD to fill the non-academic posts of the OBC quota.
Furthermore, under the service extension scheme of these posts, there was a demand to extend their extension for one year. But this could not be possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, UGC has given time till 31 December 2021 to Delhi University colleges to fill these posts.
Posts were to be filled by the Delhi University colleges till 31st March 2019
Explain that the non-academic posts of OBC employees were to be filled by the DU colleges by 31 March 2019. But in most colleges, advertisements for these posts were not removed. After that, organizations of SC, ST, OBC employees wrote letters to UGC. After that, the UGC had instructed to fill these posts by giving an extension of one year. Later these posts were not removed due to Covid-19. Now UGC has issued instructions to fill these posts.
Maximum vacancies in 28 colleges of Delhi Government
He has told that the maximum vacancies of the OBC quota are lying in the 28 colleges of the Delhi Government. The governing bodies were not formed in these colleges from March 2019 to March 2020, due to which these colleges did not remove advertisements to fill the posts of OBC quota.
Dr. Suman has demanded from the principals of colleges that similar posts should be removed from the governing body at the earliest and advertisements for the posts should be removed.
