Bharathidasan University on Tuesday chose Gopinath Ganapathy, head of its Computer Science department, as its new registrar while K Doraiyarasan, associate professor of Tamil Department, Kumbakonam Government College, has been appointed the controller of examination. Professor of Physics department in BDU, S Arumugam, who was the only candidate for the post of director, distance education centre, was also selected for the post.
Ganapathy was selected from among 12 candidates who were interviewed for the post of registrar by the selected committee while K Doraiyarasan was chosen from a list of six candidates as the controller of examination. The syndicate meeting held in the afternoon approved the names for the said posts recommended by the three selection committees. Barring Doraiyarasan, the two others assumed charge on Tuesday evening itself.
A three-member committee with a nominee each from government and syndicate was set up to select permanent officers to the post of registrar and controller of examination. An expert from the field was appointed as the third member of the committee. While the applications were received and scrutinised, the delay in appointment had been affecting the administrative mechanism of the university. The postings gained significance especially in the absence of a vice-chancellor from June this year for taking vital decisions of the university. The need for permanent officers was much felt as the in-charge officers holding the posts were accused of being inefficient in academic circles.
However, Sunil Paliwal, principal secretary in the higher education department, claimed that in-charge officers did an excellent work in the absence of permanent officers, but that "it is always good to have permanent officers to such key posts." Paliwal, who also heads the vice-chancellor convener committee, said that the government had been taking steps to fill key posts.
