DU: EC and members of finance committee urge VC to free salaries of ad hoc teachers
Pointing out that ad hoc teachers in several departments have not been paid for more than two months, a few members of Delhi University’s executive council and finance committee wrote to Vice Chancellor Yogesh Singh on Tuesday and demanded that their salary is credited ”without further ado”. In the letter, Executive Council members Seema Das and Rajpal Singh Pawar and Finance Committee member JL Gupta also pointed out that ad hoc teachers have faced a delay in their extension as the department is asked to explain their load. of work.
“…the ad hoc teachers in the departments (mostly first generation learners) have not been paid for two and a half months. It is very difficult to survive in a metropolitan city like Delhi without a salary. They were appointed after the necessary approvals are in place,’ the letter read.
“We have learned that there is a delay in their extension as departments are repeatedly asked to explain workloads,” he added. Stressing the need for extension to ad hoc teachers, they said the student-teacher ratio is “not conducive” to quality teaching-learning at PG level and quality research. ”The student-teacher ratio varies by department and is not conducive to quality teaching-learning at the PG level and quality research. For example, a department like political science with about 1,200 PG students somehow manages with 12 to 13 permanent teachers,’ the letter reads. “These students are mixed groups in terms of Hindi and English medium. Teachers of specialized areas of their academic disciplines are basically required at the departmental level,” he added.
