Delhi University teachers write to VC for ‘best legal representation’ in College of Art affiliation case

Contending that Ambedkar University (AU) is “stealthily snatching” College of Art (CoA) from Delhi University (DU), 11 members of DU Academics for Action and Development have urged Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh to secure the “best legal representation” for the varsity in the matter. In a letter to Singh, they said the CoA is facing a “harsh situation of losing its identity and existence”.

In the letter to Singh, the teachers noted that the interim order “went in favour of AUD” as far as the admission for the current session is concerned. “The same order has given two weeks to DU for filing an appeal and nowhere does it endorse the merger of CoA with Dr. B R Ambedkar University,” the letter pointed out.

The teachers have requested Singh to secure the best legal representation for Delhi University through top lawyers and seek a stay of the order directing the admission process under AUD as well as for the appointment of the dean by filing the appropriate appeal against such order in the competent court.


“Get an order of the competent court that in the pendency of the matter before the Delhi High Court and a judicial order on merits, the admission process for the coming year (s) in College of Art to be carried out under the aegis of the University of Delhi,” the letter read.

The Office of the Lieutenant Governor had earlier given in-principle approval to the merger of the College of Art with the Ambedkar University, subject to its de-affiliation from the DU. However, the Executive Council of the Delhi University, its highest decision-making body, refused to de-affiliate the college.
