Teachers Of DU Protests On Vacant Seats

Teachers of Delhi University held a serious protest demanding to fill up the vacant seats which were left behind in search of new teachers. On following this protest by various teachers the organizations over the delay in filling up vacant faculty posts, Delhi University have assured them that "The process of selection for permanent appointment of teachers will start soon".

The Academics for Action and Development (AAD)- a Delhi University teachers group- had organized a protest outside the Vice-Chancellor's office on Tuesday, demanding the restoration of the process of regular teacher appointments.

Aditya Narayan Misra, the President of AAD said "A large of teaching positions across challenges and departments of Delhi University are lying vacant. Moreover, nearly 40% of the total teaching strength of 9000 teachers is working on an ad-hoc and temporary capacity".

The group has also demanded that due weightage should be given to the teaching experience of ad-hoc and temporary teachers, besides clearing the backlog of all reserved vacancies through a special recruitment drive and the restoration of advance increments to ad-hoc teachers having M.Phil or Ph.D degrees.

Here Mishra explained that "In many cases, an ad-hoc teacher who has taught up to the last day of the preceding session is being replaced by another ad-hoc appointment in the new session, denying the former his/her vacation salary".

In the press conference held earlier, the Delhi University Teacher Association (DUTA) had raised this issue. The president of DUTA Amar Deo Sharma said "The 2006 UGC guidelines to fill up reserved vacancies at three levels- Assistant Professor and professor- are yet to be implemented".
