After the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) pulled the acting vice-chancellor of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University (BBAU) Prof B Hanumaiah for interfering in the appointments of teachers, here is another jolt for him. University's teachers welfare association has filed a writ petition in the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court challenging the MHRD extension to Prof Hanumaiah whose term ended on 17th June.
As per the association members, power of appointing or extending the V-C's tenure rests with the Visitor, i.e, the Indian President. But in Prof Hanumaiah's case, the decision to let him continue as a caretaker V-C has been taken by MHRD. The association members said under no circumstances MHRD can extend the V-C's term. And in case, such a decision has been taken, it is violation of the rules and regulations. The high court has asked the university administration to furnish all documents provided by the MHRD regarding Prof Hanumaiah's extension.
The next hearing is scheduled on 24th July where the university will have to produce all the documents. The Indian President, in her capacity as a Visitor of the university, has issued a show-cause notice to the university V-C seeking explanation why an inspection or inquiry shall not be made into the administrative lapses and non-compliance of directions of principal executive authority, that is, the Board of Management (BoM).
The action was taken on several complaints made by members of BoM, MPs, and teachers' welfare association to the President regarding appointments of 42 teachers made by the V-C, without BoM's approval. Teachers' association has alleged that the V-C amended the statutes / ordinances relating to eligibility and appointment of teachers by exercising emergency powers in violation of the rules and regulations.
