SRCC staff against guest teachers’ appointment

New Delhi, November 8

The staff association of the Delhi University’s Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) on Friday held a protest against a recent circular issued by the university directing colleges to appoint guest teachers to fill up full-time vacancies.

The SRCC teachers demonstrated outside the college gate before marching to the Vice-Chancellor’s office to submit a memorandum.

In a circular dated August 28, the Delhi University’s (DU) assistant registrar directed colleges to appoint guest teachers to fill up full-time vacancies arising in the current academic session.

Guest teachers are paid on per lecture basis and that too subject to a ceiling on payment or number of lectures in a week, the teachers said.

“This is unjust for young talent aspiring to become a teacher and shows a lack of concern for teaching-learning. It also is unmindful of the co-curricular and extra-curricular activities as well as various institutional activities in which full-time teachers participate,” they said.

This is cruel given the fact that most of them are working for over a decade and waiting for permanent recruitment, they alleged. — PTI
