Delhi University is set to employ more than 4,000 educators
on a permanent basis in 2017. After making appointments of lecturers only on an
ad hoc basis for several years, University administration has decided to
hire them on permanent payroll.
The key development is that DU has announced to hire over
1000 teachers in next year. Based on previous reports, the university has come
up with this decision after quite a long time of 7 years.
In a shocking revelation by Minister of State for Human
Resource Development, Mahendra Nath Pandey, there are around 900 teaching posts
that are vacant in the university. This is good news to the applicants who are
interested in a teaching job.
According to reports, Delhi University is planning to fill
the vacant teaching posts and will hire around 4000 teachers on permanent
payroll. A notification for the same will be published by university
administration in January, 2017.
The report was submitted before the bench of Justice J R
Midha, in a plea filed in 2001 by a gathering of teachers delegated in DU as
lecturers to educate in the Faculty of Law on impromptu basis in 1995.
