New year not happy for DU profs as they go without salary.


Now caught between a crossfire between DU and Delhi Government , professors claim they  are not provided with their salaries.  The new year started on a grim note of 28- funded colleges of Delhi University (DU). This is due to the decision of the government to freeze funds in July last year.

In July 2017, deputy  Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had decided to discontinue the financial aid provided by the Delhi Government to colleges sending a wave of panic across the university.

Funding of prominent colleges like Gargi college, Kamla Nehru College, Maharaja Agrasen College, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College was halted as the college has been operating without governing bodies.


This tug of war between DU and Delhi government made it difficult for the professors to pay their children school fees, EMI’s , house rents etc.

S.K Garg , principle of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College said, “we are  neither in a state to pay salary to our staff  nor do we have funds for paying electricity , water and telephone bills. Financially everything is held up , as we have not paid outsource to our security or sanitation staff. “ Garg addedDeen Dayal Upadhyaya is a fully government funded college and had to divert fund to ensure the basic function of the institution.

“Today a middle class family has its house running on EMI’s and if the teachers do not receive their salary on time, they get stuck into financial problems the very first week of the month. “ added  Bhupinder Kumar Chaudhary , associate professor of History in Maharaja Agrasen College, another fully funded college of Delhi Government.

Aware of the crises a senior official of Delhi Government’s education department , told Mail Today that as soon as the names for governing  body panel are sent to the government funds to the college will be released with immediate effect.

“Delhi Government   will release the salary as soon as the names of the panel members of the governing  body are submitted to us by the university”, said the official on the condition of anonymity.
