"Unfortunately, the directions have never been complied with resulting in accumulation of vacancies of teaching postssince 2011. No attempt has been made by the DSSSB for last several years to fill up the posts and provide regular teachers," an NGO Social Jurist said in its petition.
The plea, filed through advocate Ashok Agarwal, said that after a high court order of April 11, 2017, the DSSSB issued vacancy notice on August 7, 2017 inviting applications from candidates for 8,914 teaching posts in the Directorate of Education of the Delhi government and for 5,906 teaching posts in the three municipal corporation schools here.
It alleged that the DSSSB, without informing or seeking permission from the court, had on August 24, 2017 "abruptly withdrawn the advertisement in regard to the vacancies of teaching posts.
"The respondents have been deliberately and for some political motives delaying recruitment of regular teachers to the detriment of the interest of as many as 23 lakh students studying in schools run by the Government of Delhi and three municipal corporations," the plea said.
