Dharna by teachers at Vivekanand Statue

Several hundred teachers of Delhi University, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Jamia Milia Islamia and Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapith participated in a Dharna today at the Vivekanand Statue, Arts Faculty, University of Delhi (North Campus) to register their protest against the negative features of the MHRD and Draft UGC notifications on revised pay scales. The Dharna was held under the aegis of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) consisting of the teachers of these universities.

The teachers were concerned about “the inaction and utter insensitivity shown by the FEDCUTA/ DUTA Leadership (Federation of Central Universities Teachers’ Associations / Delhi University Teachers’ Association) towards the genuine demands of a large section of teachers.”

They also decided to submit a Memorandum to the MHRD and “called upon the DUTA/FEDCUTA leadership to come up with a concrete action programme to pressurize the MHRD to accede to the genuine demands of the teachers.”
