Patiala, April 5

All is now well at Punjabi University. The university teaching and non-teaching employees, who submitted mass resignations from their posts over pending promotions, ended their protest in the afternoon today.

While talking to The Tribune, university employees said they held a meeting with the university Vice-Chancellor (VC) in the afternoon in which the latter agreed to discuss pending promotions at the upcoming Syndicate meeting.

The Punjabi University Teachers’ Association (PUTA) president, Dr Nishan Singh Deol, said, “The VC has also decided to forego the 20-point checklist prepared by her office to decide whether to discuss pending promotions at the Syndicate meeting or not.”

“The VC has also appealed to the teaching staff to come back on duty,” he added.

The non-teaching officials of the university also ended their protest after the VC assured them to discuss their pending promotions and other issues at the upcoming Syndicate meeting.

The university had yet to respond on the matter when the news was filed.
