You are aware that Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in its judgment (November, 1991) directed the central and Universities to provide compulsory environmental education in colleges. University Grants Commission in its letter to all Universities dated 7th August, 2014 mentioned that the task to teaching the environment module be entrusted with the teachers who fulfill the qualifications laid down by UGC. University of Delhi started environmental studies course from the academic year 2014. PGDAV College appointed 03 Assistant Professor (Environmental Studies) on permanent basis to teach environmental Studies (Environmental Science as per CBCS) who is having post graduation in Biotechnology Botany. This is a clear cut violation of the UGC which require post graduation in relevant subject. (Vide DO letter dated 7th August, 2014, Dr. Jaspal Singh Sandhu, Secretary to UGC GoI, Ministry of Human Resource Development, all Vice Chancellors of all Universities have been directed that the task of teaching the module of Environmental studies be entrusted with the teachers who fulfill the qualifications laid down by the UGC (Annexure-I).
