KU Facing faculty crunch
Research work and faculty strength play important role in the ranking. The university had been facing faculty crunch. New faculty is being recruited and the university is focusing on the research works. We are hopeful that it will again rank among the top 100 universities soon. —Som Nath Sachdeva, VC, Kurukshetra University
