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.
