Views: 409

The HRD ministry takes a unique method of fast track appointment of Vice Chancellors across 12 Central universities. These appointed Vice Chancellors will take over the office in March 2014 before the assembly polls that are a few months away.  The Ministry has decided to go back to the old ways of appointing VCs through a common advertisement which was done in 2009  to elect 15 VCs of the created central universities. The advertisement as a method was abandoned  when VC’s of reputed universities like Delhi university, JNU etc were elected.

According to ministry officials, the advertisement for the same will appear in a few days time  which will ask candidates to apply online and give their preference of universities. This process will help the ministry to shorten the process.

The Vice chancellors of Jharkhand, Odisha, Bihar, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Punjab, Rajasthan and Srinagar will be appointed. Three state universities which were upgraded to central universities in 2009, Hari Singh Gour University, Madhya Pradesh; Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna Garhwal University, Uttarakhand and Guru Ghasidas University, Chhattisgarh will also get their new VCs.
