DU to begin filling vacancies next year

New Delhi, Dec 25, 2012, DHNS:

Vice chancellor assures faculty members at AC meeting

University of Delhi’s vice chancellor (VC) Dinesh Singh has assured teachers that the process of recruitments of teaching staff would begin from 2013, say members of academic council (AC). Earlier, the VC had promised to start the process of filling around 4,000 teaching posts from October this year.

“The VC told us that the documents on service conditions for teachers are still lying with higher authority for approval. Once they give the approval, recruitment will start. He told us that the process will start next year,” said an AC member.

However, the VC rejected the teachers’ demand of hiring contractual faculty members. He said the new four-year-graduation is being planned in a way to absorb adhoc teachers.
Sections of teachers seem to be sceptical about the announcement for hiring of teachers.


“There is enough confusion regarding how the courses will be divided among teachers with specialisations to teach honours courses. When they decided to introduce papers such as mind, body and heart for a few semesters, it seems that people will be hired on contractual basis to teach such subjects,” said a professor of English from Lady Shri Ram College for Women.

The teachers said that the appointment of permanent teachers has been on hold for past three-four years and it will take time to fill 4,000 vacant positions.  

“There is talk that some recruitments will take place. There are departments like Sanskrit, and other language departments in many colleges where the lone faculty members have retired, or the head of the department has retired. So recruitments will be made to fill such posts,” added the professor.
