Delhi HC stays guest teachers’ Regularisation

The Delhi High Court has stayed the process of appointing guest teachers and promoting those appointed since 2010 in Delhi government schools till October 11.

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 the High Court was informed that the authorities have not complied with its 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.

2001 order

“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 the Delhi government]...,” 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 NGO Social Jurist.
