After arrears in salaries, the Delhi University Teachers Association has written letter to the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the issues faced by almost 28 colleges which are partially or fully funded by the city government.
On 9th September, the Delhi University Teachers Association wrote to the Chief Minister asking about the stoppage of grants from AAP due to which the employees of almost 28 colleges are not receiving their salaries on time. This led to both sides blaming each other for various reasons.
DUTA’s letter said that denial of salary and other reimbursement to the employees is a violation of our basic human rights and no reason can justify this default on your part. It is not just affecting the employees but even the students. The colleges are also demanding extra funds for salaries and infrastructure due to more number of enrolments this year because of EWS category.
On the other hand, Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister, Manish Sisodia has pointed out that Delhi University is not forming governing bodies and we cannot give funds without discussing with them. There are almost 12 colleges that are fully funded by Delhi government while 16 others that are partially funded.
