In reshuffle of top posts, Punjabi University has re-allocated charges of the offices of Dean (Academic Affairs), Dean (Research), Dean (Student welfare) and Dean (College development council) in anticipation of the Syndicate meeting. The orders regarding changes were released from the university Registrar’s office today.

Punjabi University’s former and acting Vice-Chancellor Ravneet Kaur, an IAS officer, had deputed Prof Pushpinder Singh Gill of the School of Management Studies, who also happens to be the senior-most faculty member of the university, as Dean (Academic affairs), a little over a month ago.

Instead of him, Prof Balvir Singh Sandhu, Department of Physics, will take care of the work at the Dean (Academic affairs) office. Dr Gill will, however, continue to hold the charge of Dean (External centres).

The changes were done as per directions of the university Vice-Chancellor, who has also deputed Dr Anupama, Professor, Department of Economics, as Dean (Student welfare) for a year.

The university has also decided to issue orders for replacing Prof Gurdeep Singh Batra, who holds the charge of Dean (Research) well in advance.

Dr Ashok Kumar Tiwari, will take charge of the Professor (Pharmacy) for one year from July 10. Similarly, Dr Gurpreet Singh Lehal, Professor, Department of Computer Science, will take over charge of Dean (College development council) for one year from July 1.

Responding to the development, Dr Pushpinder Singh Gill said, “I have worked to the best of my abilities and tried to come up to the expectations of the given charge.”
