DAV hires 85 teachers, gives no appointment letters

DAV College, Sector 10, has hired 85 teachers in this academic year without issuing them appointment letters. The lecturers, teaching graduate and postgraduate courses, are supposed to receive consolidated salaries prescribed by the government, but allegedly do not. The college has been mired in controversy for over two months now. Punjab and Haryana High Court has stayed the suspension of the college principal, Dr B C Josan, by the management for alleged irregularities, pending the hearing on his petition. In response to a query filed under the Right to Information (RTI) Act about the hiring of lecturers on contract during 2010-11, Dr Josan said, "No appointment
letters have been issued to such teachers." Josan furnished a list of these teachers. He said this was a practice followed at the college for many years, and lecturers are issued experience certificates when they leave. The college has around 150 regular teachers in addition to these 85 `contracted' lecturers.
