DU to 12 college directors


New Delhi, Nov 7 (PTI) The University of Delhi has requested details of all communications exchanged between the directors of 12 colleges fully funded by the city government and the director of higher education.

The action comes following accusations by the Delhi government’s Ministry of Higher Education.

In a letter written to the Vice Chancellor of the University of Delhi, Yogesh Singh, the government asked him to take action against the principals of 12 government-funded colleges in Delhi.

The ministry accused them of “inciting teachers” and “creating a hostile educational environment” over funding issues.

“Instead of providing UC (Certificates of Use) on time, respecting the conditions of the assistance scheme, correctly managing the accounts, evolving internal resource generation mechanisms, the principals encouraged the teachers and staff by words, creating a hostile educational environment. . The directors, in their leadership role, led negative critical and embarrassing chants, ”the letter read.

Following the letter, the Deputy Registrar (Colleges) of the University of Delhi wrote to the principals asking them to provide all communications made with the Director of Higher Education and other officials.

Twelve DU colleges are fully funded by the Delhi government and the funds have been a bone of contention between the two sides.

In a statement, AAP MP Atishi, chairman of the Standing Committee on Education (Delhi Vidhan Sabha), alleged that there was a lack of transparency on the part of the colleges.

“Under the terms and conditions of the grant, college principals must submit certificates of use in order to obtain funds. However, colleges delay this process each term. On the one hand, the colleges do not complete the basic process and on the other hand, they turn around and say that the Delhi government is not giving funds. It is impossible to understand why the CUs are delayed and why the colleges blame the Delhi government when the delay is on their side? understand the reason for the lack of transparency of these colleges who do not want to explain where the funds were used. At the same time, it is worrying that principals, while complicit in the postponement of the end of colleges, are inciting teachers to spread lies that the Delhi government is not releasing funds, ”he said. she declared.
