The teachers were detained at Parliament Street and Mandir Marg police stations. Their demands included restoring the 200-point roster, absorption of ad hoc and temporary teachers, and implementation of the reservation system.
The DUTA said the central government has responded neither to their plea to bring in a legally sound provision for regularisation or absorption of temporary and ad hoc teachers nor to bring about a just resolution to the issue of the reservation roster through an ordinance.
The inordinate delay in appointments and the unwillingness to take steps for the regularisation or absorption of teachers through permanent appointments is affecting the lives of thousands of young teachers whose future seems bleak and uncertain, DUTA added in its letter to the vice chancellor.
The boycott will affect evaluation of 1.2 lakh students studying in 63 colleges. The evaluation process goes on for almost a month, following which the examination department takes another month to declare the results. Usually, results starts getting declared by July.
