Punjabi University Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof Arvind has started taking curative measures regarding the university functioning and administration. The university in orders issued today deputed Dr Gursharan Singh Randhawa, a retired professor from the IIT, Roorkee, as the honorary centre Director of the Punjabi University Talwandi Sabo campus. He will now oversee the functioning of Yadavindra College of Engineering, Guru Kashi College, University School of Business Studies Department and Punjabi University Maur campus.

The university has allocated all administrative and financial powers to Dr Randhawa.

Talking to The Tribune, the VC said it could be termed as an administrative reform. “The engineering college, constituent college and the centre have all been running from the same campus in individual capacity. This is not viable given the facilities and resources available there. Therefore, we have decided to combine their functioning under one office,” the VC added.

“Dr Randhawa will be available on the campus. We hope academic activity will thrive, admissions will increase and there will be efficient management of the campus along with faculty exchange between departments,” said the VC.

Prof Randhawa has 34 years of teaching experience. He held the post of honorary Vice-Chancellor, Guru Kashi University, Talwandi Sabo. He was a professor at the Department of Biotechnology, IIT Roorkee, from 1996 to 2018. — TNS
