The Delhi University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) took to the streets on Wednesday over its demand for immediate absorption of over 4,500 ad-hoc teachers in the varsity.
The DUTA office bearers met the vice chancellor and submitted a memorandum listing out demands on issues relating to the 12 colleges.
The teachers' union also announced to continue the university shut down, which began on March 11, until their demands are met.
They demanded for constitutional rights of the marginalised sections to be protected, ad-hoc teachers reappointed on the basis of the old roster and permanent appointments resumed at the earliest.
They were protesting against a workshop being organised by the higher education regulator on granting autonomy to select colleges of the varsity.
