DU Teachers' Association writes to DU colleges; urges them to renew appointment of ad hoc teachers
DUTA, in a letter to colleges under Delhi University and department heads, urged them to ensure rejoining of all ad hoc teachers
On Wednesday, July 13, the Delhi University Teachers' Association (DUTA) called on university colleges and departments to renew the appointment of ad hoc teachers for the 2022-2023 academic session.
This comes on the heels of the new curriculum, Undergraduate Curriculum Framework-2022. Concerns were raised over it stating that it will lead to the displacement of teachers, especially of teachers who have been onboarded on an ad hoc basis, states a copy in PTI.
DUTA, in a letter to colleges under Delhi University and department heads, urged them to ensure rejoining of all ad hoc teachers who were teaching till the last day of the 2021-2022 academic session.
"DUTA appeals to you to ensure rejoining of all ad-hoc teachers who had been teaching in your college/department till the last day of academic session 2021-2022. You are requested to ensure that summer salary/(ex gratia payment us per Ordinance XI) is paid to them at the earliest," the letter read.
The DUTA also called for the implementation of a resolution passed by the university's Academic Council and Executive Council in March which states that any fluctuation in workload would not displace the existing temporary teachers till permanent appointments are made.
Last month, a few members of the Delhi University's Executive Council and Finance Committee wrote to Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh and demanded that the wages of ad hoc teachers be credited "without any further delay".
