Kapurthala, November 13

It’s been nearly seven years now since IK Gujral Punjab Technical University had a regular Vice Chancellor.

Dr HS Bains, who moved to Maharaja Ranjit Singh Punjab Technical University, Bathinda, was the last registrar and served till January 22, 2014.

Ever since he moved, the university has had four officiating registrars and all of them have held the post as an additional charge. After Dr Bains, Dr Rajneesh Kant Sachdeva was the officiating registrar for a year; Dr Amanpreet Singh held the charge for three years and Dr SS Walia served for two years. At present, Sandeep Kazal is serving on the post.

The university had held interviews and shortlisted candidates, but the process got stalled after one of the candidates challenged the procedure.

The university is also without a regular Controller of Examination and regular Finance Officer after Dr SK Mishra moved to the Dr BR Ambedkar National Institute of Technology as the registrar. The post of Dean Research and Development is also likely to get vacant next month, as Dr AP Singh is set to retire. The posts of other deans are either vacant or have an acting officer on the post.

University’s Vice Chancellor Dr Ajay Sharma said: “Owing to certain glitches, we have not been able to strengthen our faculty. For the same reason, we have not been able to get 12 B approvals from the UGC or apply under the National Assessment and Accreditation Council.”
