Surprisingly, the university does not have a record of the number of ad-hoc teachers it employs. However, it is estimated to be around 4,000. The Unversity has a total of around 9,000 teachers at present. They also appealed to the President to look into various irregularities of the University like discriminatory and exploitative service conditions and how it is affecting the teaching-learning environment of DU.

DU and UGC's guidelines on ad-hoc appointments:

  • Ad-hoc appointments should be made for a period of four months

  • Proportion of ad-hoc faculties should not be more than 10 percent of the total number of faculties

The memorandum also mentioned other negative sides of ad-hoc appointments. Presently DU has developed a culture of appointing ad-hoc faculties even on permanent sanctioned posts for years. In some of the colleges, the situation is getting critical, where the proportion of ad-hoc faculties has reached 90 per cent.
