Among the colleges that have been claimed for acquisition from UGC are Bhimrao Ambedkar College, Maharaja Agrasen College, Maharshi Balmiki College, Indira Gandhi Sports College, Aditi College, Sister Nivedita, Deen Dayal Upadhyay College, Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences and Delhi. . DUTA President Rajiv Roy said the issue of these 12 colleges has been raised with the UGC. There is a constant crisis over the salaries of the teachers of these colleges.
All these 12 colleges are 100 per cent funded by the Delhi government. Now a claim has been made that UGC is in charge of these 12 colleges. The Delhi University Teachers’ Union has officially put the demand before the UGC, Roy said.
According to the verdict, DUTA officials have met with UGC officials on the matter. UGC Secretary Prof Rajneesh Jain and Financial Adviser PK Tagore were also present at the meeting.
The problem is not limited to these 12 colleges. The term of the governing body of the two colleges run by the Delhi government has ended on September 1. The Delhi government has not finalized the names of the members of the governing body.
Hansraj Sumon, president of the Teachers Association (DTA), has told Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Education Minister Manish Sisodia that if the names of the members are sent soon, the governing body should be extended for three months in special circumstances.
He said that if the governing bodies of 28 colleges did not get an extension, a retrenched governing body would try to fill the backlog posts. Therefore, the government should write to the Vice-Chancellor of the governing body about extending the term of the State Management Committee.
The term of the board of directors of 28 colleges, funded by the Delhi government, expires on September 13.
According to Rule 18 of the University, the process of formation of the Governing Body should begin three months before the expiration of the term of the Governing Body.
Of the 28 colleges funded by the Delhi government, 12 were given 100 per cent grants, while the remaining 16 were given 5 per cent grants from the state government.
