The Delhi Government on Tuesday, 22 September 2020 released funds worth ₹32.1 crores for salaries of employees working in six government-funded colleges of Delhi University. DUTA called the amount inadequate and said these funds do not cover all the expenses of these colleges.
Rajib Ray, President Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) said, “The allocated amount does not cover all expenses of these colleges, yet we hope the Delhi government at least transfers these funds to the colleges immediately. Unfortunately, the other six colleges still await the sanction. We must remind the government that these divisive policies will not work with us.”
According to the government sources, the following institutes received grants:
Acharya Narendra Dev College – Rs. 6.8 crore
Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences for Women – Rs. 4.65 crore
Indira Gandhi Institute of Physical Education & Sports Sciences – Rs. 4 crore
B R Ambedkar College – Rs. 6.35 crore
Maharaja Agrasen College – Rs. 5.8 crore
Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences – Rs. 4.5 crore
The remaining six colleges which are yet to receive the grants include Bhagini Nivedita College, Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Aditi Mahavidyalaya, Maharishi Valmiki College of Education, and Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College.
A varsity official, who requested anonymity, informed the formation of governing bodies in the 12 colleges. The six colleges which have received the funds have governing body chairmen from the government whereas the rest six have varsity nominees as chairmen.
The 12 fully funded colleges have alleged the inadequacy and non-release of grants by the government for paying expenses, including salaries since May. Whereas, the Kejriwal-led government denied the claims and said it released adequate funds. The Delhi University Teachers’ Association has been objecting since then.
