Objecting to the appointment of principals to nine Delhi University (DU) colleges funded by it, the Delhi government has warned the university not to go ahead with any recruitment until it has nominated members to their governing bodies.
The state government had in April written to 28 DU colleges funded by it, asking them to stop all appointments until full-fledged governing bodies, which are to include government-nominated members, were in place. Of 15 governing body members in each college, five are nominated by the government. While the Delhi government fullly funds 12 colleges, the rest 16 get five per cent funding.
DU’s apex committee appointed full-time principals to nine of the state government-funded colleges at a meeting on July 1. The nine colleges are Aditi Mahavidyalaya, Bhaskaracharya College of Applied Sciences, Laxmi Bai College, Shaheed Rajguru College of Applied Sciences for Women, Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College, Satyawati College, Moti Lal Nehru College and Kalindi College.

“Referring to the communication to all government-funded colleges… that no appointments shall be made by the governing body until members to them are nominated by the Delhi government as required by DU ordinances, the department is in receipt of information that your college is carrying out recruitment of teachers/principals. It is once again reminded that no regular appointment should be made until the final formation of governing bodies,” the Directorate of Higher Education said in a communication to DU.
While members of DU’s apex committee confirmed that the decision on the appointments was taken on July 1, they added that no official notification had been issued in this regard.
