Image result for bdu panel

Amidst opposition from a section of syndicate members, the convener committee discharging duties of vice-chancellor at Bharathidasan University (BDU) has decided to go ahead with the appointment of registrar, controller of examination (COE) and director of the centre for distance education.
The official communication from the office of registrar in-charge on Monday said that a meeting of the syndicate would be held on December 12 to conduct interviews for the said posts.
It is likely that appointments would also be made on the same day. Applications were called for these posts in July this year and the selection panel, for each post, was constituted in October.
The two-member vice chancellor convener committee that comprises higher education secretary, Sunil Paliwal and director of collegiate education, S Manjula, will chair the four-member selection panel for each post.
While the convener committee headed by Paliwal spearheaded the process, a petition, terming the process unconstitutional citing the absence of vice chancellor was submitted to the higher education minister and the governor a couple of days ago.


The petition bearing the signature of four syndicate members said that according to the statues and acts of the Bharathidasan University, a syndicate subcommittee in the absence of a vice chancellor is only empowered to discharge routine administrative functions and cannot make appointments except in extraordinary situation.
"There is no extraordinary situation prevailing in the university and the vice-chancellor too will be appointed in a matter of few weeks. Then why is the convener committee hurrying up with the appointments," pointed out syndicate member M Kannan, one among the signatories in the petition.
"In the absence of vice- chancellor, it is the syndicate which would decide on who should discharge the duties on behalf of the vice chancellor," said the higher education secretary adding that the meeting of the syndicate on June 8, empowered the convener committee to discharge duties of the vice-chancellor.
Referring to section 11 of the BDU Act, he said that it spoke about duties of the vice-chancellor and it was the subcommittee that would discharge duties in the absence of VC.
