Chandigarh, January 30

Maharaja Ranjit Singh Punjab Technical University (PTU), Bathinda, is functioning without a Vice-Chancellor for the last three months.

After the tenure of the last VC, Prof Buta Singh, ended on November 1, Chancellor of the PTU, Governor Banwarilal Purohit, had asked for the appointment of the senior most Dean (faculty) as the officiating VC.

Guv rejects recommendation

The Governor has turned down the recommendation of the state government to appoint the Secretary, Technical Education, as the officiating VC. The Governor’s instructions were against the precedence to appoint the Secretary, Technical Education, as the officiating VC till the appointment of a regular VC.

The Governor has turned down the recommendation of the state government to appoint the Secretary, Technical Education, as the officiating VC. The Governor’s instructions were in withdrawal of the precedence to appoint the Secretary, Technical Education, as the officiating VC till the appointment of a regular VC.

It is learnt that the file proposing the names of the suitable candidates had already been sent by the Department of Technical Education and Industrial Training to the Chief Minister’s office.

Confirming the development, sources in the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said the process to appoint a regular VC has been initiated.

Earlier, the Governor had taken a similar stand in case of IK Gujral Punjab Technical University (IKGPTU), Kapurthala, as he had sought to know as to why the senior most Dean (Faculty) could not be given the officiating charge of the VC. Before the appointment of Prof Susheel Mittal as the VC of the Kapurthala PTU, the Governor had turned down the recommendation of the state government to appoint the Secretary, Technical Education, as the officiating VC.
