The Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) wrote to the MHRD to implement 10% quota for teachers from economically weaker sections.
The letter by DUTA’s president Rajib Ray and secretary Vivek Chaudhury said, “At present, Delhi University and its colleges are unable to implement the expansion of EWS quota”. The two wrote this letter to the HRD minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.
The academic session is about to begin in Delhi University, the teaching staff will likely expand as DUTA has requested renewal of appointment of ad-hoc teachers so that they don’t face any hardships because of the implementation of EWS reservation.
The government gave Rs 143.76 crore to the Delhi University to expand the teaching staff with the quota implementation. It also gave Delhi University with additional Rs 47.24 crore for constituent/affiliated colleges to increase the strength of their teaching and non-teaching staff.
The implementation of EWS quota in teaching cadre will also challenge the ad-hoc teaching staff.
