marghoob haider abidi has been recently appointed secretary of Delhi Urdu Academy. The activities of the Academy had virtually come to a stop for a long time as there was no secretary. Though interviews for the post were conducted on July 4, selection was delayed due to a controversy over rejecting the application of a candidate and not calling him for the interview. Abidi's appointment too is seen as technically controversial, because his appointment was made as an Urdu translator who is now working on deputation which may put a question mark on his appointment as a man cannot serve on two deputations at a time. On the other hand there has been a wide spread condemnation among literary circles against a mere13 per cent increment in salaries of part-time teachers of the Academy as they had already been getting poor salaries. They have demanded a higher increment.
