NSUI National President Neeraj Kundan said the student fund is part of the fees charged to students and, according to university statutes, cannot be used to pay salaries to teachers.

On Friday, the Delhi government ordered the 12 fully funded Delhi University faculties to pay outstanding salaries to the employees of the Student Society Fund, a move criticized by the DU faculty and staff. university officials.
It has ordered a special audit of six universities: Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, Maharishi Valmiki B Ed College, Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Aditi Mahavidyalaya, Bhagini Nivedita College, and Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies.
The government and 12 fully funded universities have been locked in a fight over the release of grants, with the latter saying they have been unable to pay salaries to employees for nearly three months due to lack of release of funds.
