Delhi University Teachers Association, DUTA has decided to continue the Evaluation Boycott by adopting resolutions in favour of boycott by majority. DUTA has categorically demanded that the UGC’s Roster Notification of 5th March must be put in abeyance to ensure that no working ad-hoc or temporary teacher is displaced in the new academic session.
DUTA has been boycotting the evaluation for a month now to protest the new faculty reservation mechanism in universities and a host of other issues. In a General Body Meeting, the DUTA decided to continue its evaluation boycott by adopting a resolution, the teachers’ body said.
Meanwhile, the university again appealed to the teachers to end their evaluation boycott in the larger interest of students. This is the third time in two weeks that the varsity has issued such an appeal to the teachers
It has also demanded the immediate notification of revised allowances for teachers and workers as per 7 CPC. On other pending issues related to the counting of past services for promotions and absorption/regularization of all ad-hock and temporary teachers, DUTA has demanded urgent meetings with the VC that he has evaded so far. The MHRD and DU Administration have connived to prolong the suffering and anguish of teachers and attack the foundations of public-funded higher education.
