In response, the university sent its reports, including the findings of internal and external probe committees, to the Vigilance Bureau.

The university received a number of reminders from the Vigilance Department, including in June and November last year, and April 2021. It finally sent the findings of six probe matters to the department.

A letter sent by Registrar Dr Varinder Kaushik to the Vigilance Department mentioned that the university had sent reports related to enrolment of 65 assistant professors without NET and hiring of assistant professors at various university colleges on contract basis without following merit.

It also stated that reports on purchase of answer sheets, purchase of paper, hiring of assistant professors on basis of BC/SC certificates, and scholarships of students were sent to the department.

The matter related to purchase of fire extinguishers is already under the Vigilance Department scanner.
