An 11-member high-level committee formed by the Vice-President of India and Chancellor, Panjab University, to suggest governance reforms in the university is likely to submit its report this week. The committee was asked to submit its report within two months after its formation on February 8. However, the Punjab Government, one of the stakeholders in the committee, had asked for more time for filing their suggestions. The delay was said to be due to the ongoing Covid pandemic and the government was expected to file its suggestions by April 26. However, the committee has not got any reply to date.
Now, it has been expected that the committee will wait for a few more days before filing its final report to the Chancellor’s office for taking further decision. “The committee has discussed various issues and will submit its final report in the coming days. The Punjab Government is also likely to submit its take on the suggestions soon,” said a source.
