The Punjabi University syndicate yet again deferred a discussion on probe reports into the alleged corruption and misuse of funds to the next meeting, to be held in September. During a meeting convened by V-C BS Ghuman, the members decided they would hold a meeting every month. The meeting today was convened after a gap of a year.

The university had failed to provide copies of the action taken report to the members regarding the probe into the alleged scams, which have been investigated twice by internal and external committees. The members said they could not decide on the matter without having gone through the reports after which the matter was deferred for the next meeting.

The university will not make fresh recruitments of teaching and non-teaching officials without the approval of the syndicate. The university has a long-standing record of taking decisions 'in anticipation of the syndicate'. The governing body also decided that the university had to follow the seniority list while appointing officials on administrative posts, which had been neglected in the past. Moreover, posts which are to be filled through open recruitment will be filled following proper norms rather than the previously followed process of filling them through internal promotion.
