DU council mulls changes

The Executive Council of Delhi University at its  meeting on Wednesday decided to change scholarship conditions for teachers going abroad for research.

“Presently if the amount is $20,000 or more, then it will be leave without pay, if up to $5000 then half salary will be provided and if less than that, then full salary will be given. It was also decided that leave without pay will be given on a scholarship of $50,000. Up to $15,000, half salary will be given and less than that will get full salary,” an EC member said.

Approval was given to include a non-teaching staff member in the governing body.
“Ten years of experience with at least a graduate degree is a pre-requisite for the post. The appointment will take place on a one year rotation basis. The member will be a special invitee. It is for the first time that a non-teaching member will be a part of the governing body,” said the EC member.

In both the academic and the executive council meetings, there was a consensus to oppose Delhi Metro's plan to build a 35-floor high-rise residential complex near Vishwavidyala station in North campus.

“We are planning to write to the prime minister. Talks are on about other available options with the University,” said the member.

It has also been approved to increase the students’ contribution fund for Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) from Rs 5 to Rs 20.

The proposal to give two more seats in MD in Paediatrics course in Chacha Nehru Bal Chikitsalaya has also got the green signal.
