Delhi University currently has 50.85 percent teaching positions and 68.81 percent non-teaching posts vacant, said a parliamentary committee report tabled in Rajya Sabha earlier this month. While union education minister Dharmendra Pradhan informed Lok Sabha that more than 13,000 teachers positions are lying vacant in the central educational institutions. In central universities, only 7,839 posts out of the 16,649 posts for reserved categories were filled, he added.

Due to the shortage of staff, DU has been inconsistent with submitting audit reports within the stipulated time. According to the panel, DU has submitted the annual report and audit accounts before the ministry of education on time only once in the last 30 years.

Meanwhile, at the Delhi University’s Executive Council (EC) meeting held on December 17, the council members urged the DU vice-chancellor Yogesh Singh that the non-teaching contractual employees of the university should be exempted from preliminary tests of recruitment.

The council also decided to have scholars from Germany, the United States and France teaching its students.
