Various teachers from DU were found to continue their evaluation boycott on Saturday in spite of the circular that was issued by the administration a day before which makes it compulsory for the teachers to evaluate work.

The boycott was announced in the first week of May 2018 by the DU Teachers Association (DUTA). The boycott was initiated because of various grievances that remain unaddressed by the University along with the decisions taken by the Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry which included the autonomy move.

DUTA claims that the boycott is a consequence of the negligence on the part of the University to resolve the grievances of the teachers. Rajesh Jha, a professor at Rajdhani College and an EC member was reported saying ‚ÄúThe same resolution, which the administration has cited, prohibits to have more than 10 per cent of the staff on an ad-hoc basis. However, presently, more than 60 per cent of the teachers working in the university are ad-hocs. We have been fighting for their absorption since the last ten years.” It has been pointed out that the University has not recruited any fresh candidates for the teaching staff and the ad-hocs are filling in the vacancies. The University Grants Commission (UGC) March 5th notification is another factor that has triggered this agitation.

Due to the boycott, the evaluation process of a large number of students which is estimated to be around 1.5 lakh has been delayed by over a month.
