Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) in an executive meeting on Tuesday decided to end the admission process boycott but to continue with the evaluation boycott which still isn’t a good news for existing DU students especially final year students who aren’t being able to take admission in colleges for further education.
The teachers association is protesting against the University Grants Commission’s (UGC) notification which has made Academic Performance Indicator (API) stringent. API is the basis of promotion for teachers in Delhi University. It is also said that the new notification will lead to a lot of job cuts for ad hoc teachers.
The evaluation boycott started on 24th May 2016 which has been extended till now and in between the admission process boycott was also introduced which has now been decided to done away with.
Teachers are also divided on the issue, whether admission process¬†boycott should continue or not.
Ram Lal Anand College teachers¬†have ended the admission boycott while teachers are continuing with the admission process¬†boycott at Atma Ram Sanatam Dharma College.
