It is not unlikely, for guest lecturers to get a delay in their salaries at Delhi University but, with a shift in the education to an online mode, needless to say – it has become complicated. The Delhi University has asked the guest lecturers to produce e-evidence of taking the online classes, which will be the basis of their salary.

Online records of lectures, details about class hours and syllabus covered and e-resources are a few demands of the university; as of now. The online work is being translated into the payment of salaries for the guest lecturers.

Under normal circumstances, the guest staff received payments on the basis of their attendance in the classroom which was compiled by the administration and processed by the office after confirming from the available physical evidence but due to the lockdown ‘e-footprints’ have to be produced.

Delhi University has a majority of guest lecturers who mostly teach the SOL and NCWEB students and they have been directed to be present during class hours and not compromise on teaching but to date, there has been no clear idea or no established systems regarding the payment of salaries. 

Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) has also sent a letter to the university referring to the order of Ministry of Labour and Employment (20th March), the department of personnel and training office (25th March) and the university’s circular (28th March) which considered “all employees to be treated on duty” and get paid at the earliest.
