Delhi University Teachers Demands Work From Home Amid Covid-19 Outbreak

Four members of the Academic Council (AC) of the University of Delhi wrote to the Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi, demanding the permission to work from home so as to reduce long-distance travelling of teachers. In the wake of this international epidemic, COVID-19, the University has already suspended classes of students till March 31st and all the standby festivities have been canceled. The notice was issued by the University on the 12th day of March and mentioned the measures taken by them for supporting the learning-teaching process. 

The letter sent by the AC members – Deo Kumar, Kanchan, Rajesh Kumar, and Saikat Ghosh-clearly mentioned how principals of certain colleges have made it compulsory for teachers to report in their respective departments despite the suspension of regular classes, even after the press release mentioned about providing e-sources for making the teaching process smooth.

They very clearly stated that the availability of e-sources and e-modules can not make up the time lost in the temporary cessation of classes. They added that the University should consider the extension of this particular semester and corresponding changes should be made in the date sheet in order to cover up for the lost hours of the regular study.

“In the light of the concerns expressed above, we urge you to issue adequate instructions to the colleges and the examination branch, so that we can collectively work through this period by reducing the risks further and by taking the measures necessary for maintaining quality.”, they said according to The Hindu.

No decision has yet been made, however, by the administration and whatever orders are issued should be conveyed to colleges, students and the general public.

Although, we are away from each other, let’s join our hands together and pray for the health and well-being of each individual living in this world. Let us pray for the peace in the world to make every bit of our life ahead smooth and prosperous.
