Patiala, April 14

More than two years after giving charge of the registrar’s office to a teaching faculty member on temporary basis, Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL) is yet to get a regular incumbent for the post.

On the other hand, a search committee constituted for finding an appropriate candidate for the post of university Vice-Chancellor (VC) is already on the job.

At present, the university is led by two appointees, who have been given additional charge for the top two posts for running day to day affairs of the institution.

A student pointed said, “Dr Naresh Kumar Vats was appointed as interim registrar from January 2019 upon directions of the university Chancellor’s office till further orders. He continues to execute the powers of the office even after more than two years.”

Another student said, “The RGNUL Act does not have any provisions for appointing a registrar on interim level. The university should have made efforts for the regular appointment.”

As per the RGNUL Act, “Registrar shall be a whole time officer of the university and shall be appointed by the Chancellor on the recommendation of the selection committee constituted by the executive council and headed by the Vice-Chancellor on such terms and conditions of service, as it may specify, subject to the provisions of statutes and regulations.”

When contacted, Dr Anand Pawar, officiating Vice-Chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, said he did not have supporting documents with him to comment on the issue at the moment.
