Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday requested Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh to facilitate the absorption of ad hoc and temporary teachers in Delhi government’s colleges.?

Mr. Sisodia said the ongoing interviews for Assistant Professors in different colleges of DU have been “catastrophic as reports say 70% of ad hoc teachers are being displaced”.?

“Many of these ad hoc teachers have been teaching in Delhi University colleges for decades. They understand the challenges of an institution like Delhi University, how to deal with students coming from different parts of the country with diverse linguistic backgrounds and academic experiences. The experience of teaching in a classroom cannot be replaced. Therefore, it is important to continue these teachers in Delhi University,” the Minister said.?

In 28 government colleges, where the Delhi government nominees are in the governing body, the government is responsible for the ad hoc and temporary teachers, he said. “Ordinance XVIII-4(a) provides for the appointments of teaching staff to be done by the governing body. In our 28 colleges, we want to go ahead with the absorption of the ad hoc and temporary teachers,” he said.???
