Take back directive asking DU colleges to use student funds to pay salaries: MP to Kejriwal – education
Rajya Sabha MP Rakesh Sinha has written to Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal against his government’s directive calling for 12 fully funded DU universities to pay the outstanding salaries of Society Fund employees. of Students (SSF).
“There is no reason or logic behind such a coercive measure, except an allergy to the proper functioning of the university. His callousness can be understood by his lack of concern for family members and thousands of people who depend on the teachers and employees of these 12 universities, ”Sinha said in the letter.
“Furthermore, the decision not to reimburse the Early Childhood Education Fund and the medical bills crossed all the limits of the anti-popular traits of the ruling party. Furthermore, even the hospitals linked to the university under the direct payment facility have not received payments for the medical treatment provided to the staff and pensioners of these 12 university colleges during the last 6 months, ”he added.
The Delhi government last week ordered the 12 faculties of Delhi University (DU) to pay outstanding salaries for SSF staff, a move criticized by the university’s faculty and officials.
It has also ordered a special audit of six universities, including Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College, Maharishi Valmiki B.Ed College, Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Aditi Mahavidyalaya, Bhagini Nivedita College, and Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies.
The Delhi government and the 12 universities are locked in a fight over the release of scholarships. Universities have said that because the government has not released the funds, they have not paid staff salaries for nearly three months.
“The Delhi government also has no empathy for students, as its circular instructed the directors of these universities to use the Student Society Fund to release salary. This fund is intended for library and laboratory developments, sports and student activities, ”said Sinha.
“This has the potential to create tension in these universities between the students and the administration. This instruction is unsustainable and goes against UGC guidelines, ”said Sinha.
