NEW DELHI: In an executive meeting on Tuesday, the Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) has decided to end the admission process boycott but to continue with the evaluation boycott.
The teachers are protesting the University Grants Commission’s third amendment regulation which has made the Academic Performance Indicator (API) stringent. API is a point system which determines the promotion of teachers. The evaluation boycott has been in place since May 24, which has delayed the result declaration.
According to sources, different groups of teachers were divided on whether the evaluation and admission boycott should continue.
“We should continue with admission and evaluation boycott. We demand a complete roll back of the third amendment regulation,” said CS Rawat, DUTA member.
However, Ram Lal Anand college staff association with drew the admission boycott, while staff at Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma is continuing with the boycott.
