The Syndicate Meeting of Bharathidasan University will take place on October 6 to discuss pending matters pertaining to teaching and non-teaching faculties.

The meeting, to be chaired by the Principal Secretary, Department of Higher Education, Sunil Paliwal, is much awaited since stagnation in administration has been perceptible, according to senior professors, who requested anonymity.


At present, all files are required to be cleared by the Education Secretary in the absence of the Vice-Chancellor, causing substantial slowdown in administration.

The process of choosing the next VC has also not picked up pace due to the persisting delay in appointment of the Governor's nominee in the VC Search Panel, the professors said.

Hence, the officiating committee to discharge the responsibilities of the VC needs to be reconstituted.

In a departure from the past, the officiating committee was formed with only two members: Principal Secretary for Higher Education and the Director of Collegiate Education.

Hitherto, the officiating committee with the Higher Education Secretary as the convenor had two members: one from among the professors of the university, and another representing senior teachers or principals of affiliated colleges.

Intense competition

This time, too, an attempt was made to follow the same process. While a professor was chosen from the university, there was intense competition from contenders from outside the university system for membership in the officiating committee.

Hence, to thwart the unsavoury situation, the two-member committee of the Education Secretary and the Director of Collegiate Education had to be constituted, university sources said.

Nevertheless, a fresh initiative could be taken to reconstitute the officiating committee.

Alongside, the Higher Education department must also pursue in right earnest with the office of the Chancellor the nomination of the Governor's nominee in the search panel at the earliest so that the process of choosing the next VC could be expedited, the teaching community emphasised.
