New Delhi: The Delhi high court has stayed till October 11 the process of regularising all guest teachers appointed since 2010 in Delhi government schools .

Justice A.K. Chawla directed the Delhi government to maintain status quo with regard to fresh appointment and promotion of guest teachers as regulars in its schools, after it was informed that the authorities have not complied with the high court’s 2001 order.

 

The Delhi government had recently decided to regularise all guest teachers appointed since 2010 and a bill in this regard is slated to be tabled before the Delhi Legislative Assembly on October 4, the court noted.

“Here, it is worth noting that the order passed by a division bench of this court in 2001 is yet to be implemented, as per the affidavit (of Delhi government). Keeping in view the totality of the facts and circumstances, it is therefore directed that till the adjourned date, the respondents (Delhi government) and all others concerned shall maintain status quo and shall not either appoint or promote the guest teachers, who have been appointed from the year 2010 onwards,” the court said.

 

The division bench in its 2001 order had asked the Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board (DSSSB) to ensure zero vacancy of teachers in schools on the commencement of each academic year. 

The court passed the interim order during the hearing of a contempt plea by an NGO, Social Jurist.
