After promising the second tranche of posts for implementing the OBC reservation as in 2007, UGC now has finally approved it through an expert committee. It has been approved with the intention of reducing the workload on teachers of Delhi University.
The meeting was held on 29th and 30th July with the expert committee and around 42 principals of various DU colleges who demanded the need for the sanction of posts to the OBC teachers which was given a green signal. Under this scheme, approximately 500 Assistant Professor level posts would be created. The authorities are yet to decide the number of OBC teachers according to colleges’ requirements.
Earlier DUTA had written to the government for its implementation because it was considered necessary to maintain the standard of education due to the high number of admissions from the deprived classes as well.
