DUTA also plans to hold a protest outside UGC later this month


Jasleen Kaur | February 7, 2012

The Delhi University Teachers' Association (DUTA) will hold a protest in all colleges under the university for four days starting on Tuesday. The protest will be held in the morning colleges from 11am to 2pm and from 3pm to 5pm in the evening colleges.

The protest will not affect working hours as they will be conducted during the lunch and coffee breaks in these colleges. Thus, no classes will be suspended.

DUTA says that it is fighting for many issues and one of them is the appointment of new teachers. S D Siddiqui, secretary of the association, said, "Even when there are more than 4,000 vacancies, there have been no regular appointments for more than two years now."

The teacher’s association also says that there have been delays in promotions and payment of pensions of retired professors.

Siddiqui added, “When all this is happening in the university, the vice chancellor professor Dinesh Singh is not ready to meet DUTA representatives. There is dictatorship and no rule of law.”

Singh was not available for comments.

On February 7, protests will be held at  Daulat Ram College, Hans Raj College, SGTB Khalsa College, LBC, KMC, Miranda House, St. Stephens’ College, Hindu College, Ramjus College, SRCC, Satyawati College (M & E), SOL, Aditi Mahavidyalaya, SSN College.

DUTA plans to hold demonstrations outside the UGC office later this month.
