Teachers and non-teaching staff working at recognised private schools in the state, as of March 16, 2020, are considered eligible beneficiaries.
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 Delhi government on Friday honoured 98 teachers and principals from government and private schools here for their contribution to school education.
JNUTA released a statement after the newly-appointed Registrar Anirban Chakraborti issued a statement against the term “care taker VC” used by a section of JNU teachers.
He said he would talk to the finance department about rolling out the ‘Jyoti Sanjivini’ health insurance scheme for aided and unaided private schools as well.
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.
JNUTA strongly condemns the blatant display of autocratic powers by the Caretaker Vice Chancellor in the conduct of the 157th Academic Council meeting, the statement said.
The association had met over five candidates from different constituencies before Friday evening.
It also warned of departmental action against violators. The department has further asked Chief Educational Officers (CEO)
Some protesting teachers also alleged that the AAP government is trying to dis-affiliate these 12 colleges from DU.
The teachers, however, said they were not sure that they would get salaries on time in future. “It is strange that whenever we stage protests, the government releases our grant.
With government schools set to turn polling booths, teachers in Coimbatore are worried the colourful walls will be ruined by Election Commission posters.
The Delhi govt said it has cleared the third installment of dues to the colleges but the institutions have not paid salaries to the teachers and others.
Members of Art Teacher Welfare Association (ATWA) want both the major Dravidian parties -- AIADMK and DMK -- to include the demand in their poll manifesto.
