What is the salary of a professor of Delhi University? Check Here

The University of Delhi or popularly known as DU – Delhi University is a place where not only students but teachers want to make their place. All thanks to the status this university holds that a candidate feels proud to show a mark sheet with the second division if it has a DU stamp on it. Students go through tough competition to make their place in the merit list and many come from distant places just because the local university is not as good as DU. But this war of making their place in the university is not limited to the students. Professors equally fight for a place at the University of fame.

It is known by all that underpaid ad hoc teachers are the ones actually running the colleges but why do people wish to serve as an ad hoc teacher? The answer is simple, the title of DU, availability of opportunities and of course, the salary scale if you manage a place for yourself in the list of assistant professors or the professors. Higher the designation, better the rewards.
