Panel to solve varsity appointments mess

This was decided at the Syndicate Meeting held here on Wednesday.

“The meeting decided to adhere to any orders from Government and suggested that a committee be formed by including representatives from social welfare, backward classes, higher education departments and select members of the Syndicate to set right any lapses in the appointment of teaching and non-teaching staff ,” a Syndicate member told Deccan Herald.

While, another member opined that the Syndicate did not have much to do on the issue.
“The University has to go by the letters of the Chancellor and the Government. It is binding on the Syndicate. No discussion was held on initiating criminal action on former Vice-Chancellor,” a senior professor and member of Syndicate said.

Vice-Chancellor V G Talawar said the decision will be conveyed to the Government. A committee is likely to be set up to redress the violations, if any, he added.

 “The redressal did not mean that all appointments will be cancelled. It depends on a deep assessment of university statutes, the UGC and Government guidelines and the violations that took place during appointments. It is too early to say how many will lose their jobs,” a member noted.
