About 460 permanent teachers have been appointed in the last four months in the departments and 12 colleges affiliated to Delhi University. Screening and scrutiny is being done for the appointment of permanent teachers in many other colleges of Delhi University. On this subject, teachers organizations of Delhi University say that many colleges have passed their roster but have not yet issued advertisement for the recruitment of permanent teachers. By putting pressure on those colleges, advertisements should be issued as soon as possible, screening and scrutiny should be done and adhoc teachers should be appointed permanently. Teachers believe that this will free Delhi University from adhoc teaching and the quality of academic and research work will increase.
Teacher’s organization Forum of Academics for Social Justice has said in the meeting of DUTA that after a long time the process of permanent appointment has started in DU which should be continued. Apart from the appointment of permanent teachers out of 1176 posts in 12 colleges of Delhi University, 100 teachers have been displaced. Displacement of 11 teachers has happened due to change in posts due to EWS. Among the displaced teachers, 10 teachers have been re-joined on adhoc posts.
The colleges in which the recruitment process is going on are Deshbandhu College, Hansraj College, Swami Shraddhanand College, Dayalsingh College, Dayalsingh College (Evening), Ramjas College, Kirori Mal College, Delhi College Arts and Commerce, Daulatram College, Laxmibai College etc. Deshbandhu College is the only college where all the adhoc teachers have been adjusted and confirmed.
After the completion of the screening work in these colleges, the process of permanent appointment of teachers is going on. Apart from this, the work of scrutiny and screening is going on at a fast pace in a dozen colleges. He has told that in the same way, permanent appointment of 95 teachers has been done in various departments of DU, 12 teachers have been displaced. In this way, permanent appointments of about 460 teachers have been made in various departments and colleges.
Forum of Academics for Social Justice Professor Hansraj Suman has told that more adhoc teachers are working in DU colleges than permanent teachers. In some colleges, the situation is such that 70 to 80 percent adhoc teachers are working. He has also told that there is not even a single permanent teacher in the departments of some colleges. He says that due to politics, permanent appointments were not possible despite retirements over the years, due to which the number of adhoc teachers is continuously increasing, which has crossed five thousand today.
