Pondy VC manipulate University Low!!!

Extension for pondy VC stirs a hornets' nest
Forums say Tareen Continues without Prez Nod
The extension of the Pondicherry University vice-chancellor JAK Tareen's term has stirred a hornet's nest.Various teachers' and student's forums have registered their strong opposition to the extension that they say is 'illegal'.

The Union HRD ministry has said that Tareen, whose five year term expired on April 15 this year, may continue to perform the duties of vice-chancellor till a successor is appointed . Pondicherry University Teacher's Association ( PUTA ), Government Arts and Science College Teacher's Association (GASCTWA ) and Students Federation of India (SFI) took strong exception to his extension arguing that the move suffers from 'several legal infirmities'.GASTWA general secretary K Balamurugan said the president, who is 'visitor' of the Pondicherry University is the only competent authority to appoint vice-chancellors, renew or extend their terms and not the HRD ministry.
                "The extension is illegal as it did not adhere to the statues of the university and the Pondicherry University Act, 1985. The statutes clearly state that the vice-chancellor or completion of  his term shall be eligible for reappointment for not more than another term another term or extension to a period not extending one year and after a direction from the President," Balamurugan told TOI. A spokesman of PUTA argued that when there was no direction from the visitor on or before April 15, that it was mandatory for the VC to demit office on completion of his term offive years in office.
