NEW DELHI: Disciplinary action will be taken against teaching and non-teaching staff of Delhi University's Deen Dayal Upadhyay College if they post any official matter on social media, a resolution passed by college's governing body (GB) said, drawing criticism from some faculty.

The correspondence between authorities and teachers should not go in public domain as it not only lowers the prestige of the college but is also against the official procedures and rules, it said.

"It is advised the entire teaching and non-teaching fraternity to refrain completely from putting such comments in public domain and it will be seriously viewed as subversive of discipline," the resolution said.

The order has drawn sharp criticism from teachers of the Delhi government-funded college.

"This indicates the attitude of college towards transparency. Ironically, not only the communication college GB even has problems with Staff Association (basically teaching union of the college) notices to be placed on social media," a college professor said on condition of anonymity.

Echoing the concerns another professor asked, "Can the GB inform which official procedure and the rule is violated by bringing out the communications to public forum?".
