Stepping up its protest against the semester system and the Delhi University (DU) vice-chancellor, Delhi University Teachers' Asscociation (DUTA) has asked its member deputy deans and deputy proctors of students' welfare at the varsity to resign from ther posts.

The move will seriously affect the support structure at DU and consequently its ongoing admission process as these teachers are regular lecturers who also have to do various admissions-related work at the start of every academic year.

DUTA had asked the teachers to dissociate themselves from the process to protest against the implementation of semester system by the Vice Chancellor Prof Deepak Pental.

Teachers were also asked not to prepare the time-table for the coming academic session.

The deputy deans and the deputy proctors received the letter from the DUTA on Thursday which said, "...in the Executive Council meeting of DUTA it has been unanimously decided to persuade the deputy deans of Students Welfare and proctors to give up their posts and not to be part of the university support team of the VC".

The varisty has already implemented the semester system for all the Science courses from the coming session.

Dr. Seema Parihar, a lecturer in Kirori Mal College and deputy dean of students welfare who is working for the admissions of physically handicapped students said, "I can not disassociate myself from this. These children need my help but at the same time I am a teacher and I do not wish to leave the DUTA either."

DUTA president Aditya Narayan Mishra was not available for the comment.
