NEW DELHI: Several teachers of Delhi University staged a demonstration outside the UGC office on Wednesday demanding a one-time regulation for absorption of ad-hoc and temporary teachers in the university's departments and colleges. The protest was organised by the Delhi University Teachers' Association (DUTA).

DUTA president AK Bhagi, office-bearers and hundreds of teachers held the demonstration over their demands for absorption of ad-hoc teachers and sanction of 25 percent economically weaker section positions to DU and its colleges, the teachers' body said in a statement. "DUTA also demanded from the Government of India through UGC to bring a one-time Bill-Regulation in Parliament following DoPT norms and 200-point roster to absorb the ad-hoc-temporary teachers of Delhi University," the statement read.

Senior activists and many ad-hoc teachers alleged that the "disease of ad-hocism" has been created and patronised by the previous vice-chancellors and this needs to be immediately addressed, it stated. The DUTA had submitted a petition in February to President Ram Nath Kovind seeking his intervention for the absorption of 4,500 ad-hoc and temporary professors working in the university.
