Delhi University teachers on strike to protest education policy

NEW DELHI: Teachers of Delhi University will go on a five-day strike starting on Monday to protest against the uncertainty about long-pending appointments, promotions and pensions.

The DU Teachers Association (DUTA) has decided to hold an 'adhikar rally' on the North Campus.

The teachers are unhappy with the recommendations of the November 2, 2017, MHRD notification on the seventh pay revision and March 9, 2018, UGC draft regulations.

Last month, hundreds of DU teachers had gone on a two-day strike over an alleged scam in the recent appointment of 126 candidates to the post of assistant professors in varsity's law faculty.

The teachers had claimed that the appointments are in gross violation of University Grants Commission's (UGC) guidelines and the university bye-laws as it failed to absorb many long-serving ad-hoc teachers.
