In a letter to Yogesh Singh, vice-chancellor of Delhi University, the government has asked him to take action against the principals of 12 Delhi government-aided colleges. The department has accused them of funding for “provoking teachers” and “creating a hostile learning environment.”
“Instead of issuing timely UC (Utilization Certificates), complying with the terms of the assistance pattern, managing the accounts properly, and developing procedures for internal resource building, principals are provoking teachers and staff by speaking out, creating a hostile learning environment. And leading to embarrassing slogans, ”the letter said.
Following the letter, the Assistant Registrar (College) of Delhi University wrote a letter to the Principal asking him to provide all communication with the Director of Higher Education and other officials.
Twelve DU colleges are fully funded by the Delhi government and the funds have been a bone of contention between the two parties.
In a statement, AAP MLA Atishi, chairperson, complained to the Standing Committee on Education (Delhi Legislative Assembly) that there was a lack of transparency from colleges.
“Under the terms of the grant, the college principals have to submit a utilization certificate to get the funds. However, the colleges delay the process every quarter. On the one hand, the colleges do not meet the basic process. It is incomprehensible why UC is late and why colleges are blaming the Delhi government for their delay.
“The most important thing to understand the reason for the lack of transparency of these colleges is that they do not want to explain where the funds have been used. Provokes teachers, ”he said.
