Delhi University: 378 permanent teachers to be hired

"The university has invited online applications for 378 posts of assistant professors across 41 departments and centres, which include 187 general category posts, 100 OBC, 55 SC, 29 ST and seven posts for persons with disabilities," said a DU official.

After seven years, Delhi University has set the recruitment process in motion by inviting applications for the posts of 378 permanent teachers across departments.

The move comes following the directives by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) for filling up the vacant posts. The central university, which has been largely surviving on ad-hoc teachers for the past seven years, rolled out the vacancies after 2009.

What has the HRD minister said?

HRD minister Prakash Javadekar had last year said that his ministry would push for a recruitment drive in all major institutions and that all vacant positions should be filled by 2018.

Delhi University teachers have been protesting against the hiring freeze for a long time and submitted memorandums to the HRD ministry. The ministry has stated that ad-hoc appointments should not exceed 5 per cent of faculty strength.

The varsity paved way for the recruitment process in December last year with the Academic and Executive councils passing the University Grants Commission's amendment on teachers' recruitment.
