The Delhi University Teachers’ Association is planning not to take up evaluation of semester exams and go on a strike for an indefinite period from January 2020. This strike has been planned because of the unfulfilled demands of DUTA from a very long time. A General Body Meeting took place last week where the pending demands were discussed and the decision to boycott evaluation was taken up.
Many demands were discussed in the meeting which have not been fulfilled and all the past circulars and new schemes which have been introduced were also discussed upon. One of the circulars that came out in August this year regarding the appointment of guest teachers for the full-time posts in various colleges and departments. This doesn’t just affect the environment for teachers but also effects the teaching as well as learning process for the college or department as a whole.
Similarly, many other demands have been discussed and highlighted in the meeting including absorption of ad-hoc teachers to permanent posts and the second tranche of posts under OBC expansion scheme.
