Patiala, July 22

A Punjabi University team comprising over 40 officials, including the finance officer and the officiating Registrar, visited the Auditor-General’s office in Chandigarh to discuss pending matters of finances, maintenance and engineering wing and the sports department among others today.

Officials said the meeting was held to discuss over 120 matters of yearly audits of the university that had been awaiting resolution for years.

The Auditor General’s office, which usually visits the university for audit, had called a meeting on July 19. Later, it was postponed to July 22.

Insiders said: “Officials associated with the maintenance and engineering wing, library, sports departments among others were present in the meeting. As many as 120 matters related to the university have been pending since years. In fact, some matters have been pending since 1975. Of these, only 30-35 were discussed in the meeting held today.”

Among others, the university has a pending matter regarding the scam related to UGC research grant amounting to over Rs 11 crore. University Vice-Chancellor Prof Arvind said the matter was not discussed in today’s meeting.

A matter related to 62 ‘ineligible’ assistant professors on the campus was also pending. The VC said: “It is more of an administrative matter. But the audit office has also raised objections to it. It is pending with the Vigilance Department. All such matters pending with the Vigilance Department or the state government were not discussed today.”

The VC said he had demanded a report regarding all pending matters of audit from officials concerned to resolve them at the earliest.
