TED NewsDesk, New Delhi: On Monday, the Delhi government authorised the release of salaries of four colleges of the University of Delhi. Despite agreeing to the provision of the funds, the authorities maintained that the appointment of the staff was not approved. They added that the government should not sponsor such positions.
An amount of Rs 19.4 crore as the salary and Rs 1.675 crore as the non-salary head for these colleges was released: Aditi Mahavidyalaya, Bhagini Nivedita College, Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies and Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar College. The move was taken as per the directive issued by the Delhi High Court.
On last Friday, the Deputy CM of Delhi, Manish Sisodia had proclaimed the lack of transparency in some DU colleges. He said that the auditors who visited the following colleges were not provided with the attendance of a few teachers. These colleges included Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, Keshav Mahavidyalaya. Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, Bhagini Nivedita College and Maharshi Valmiki College of Education. He suggested that there might be a possibility that these teachers were just hired on the paper to swindle money from the government.
Such a practice should be curbed at its stem; naturally, the government must be suspicious. Hopefully, these allegations are false, and a reputed university like DU does not have its staff involved in unlawful activities such as these.
