Shimla, January 12
Vice-Chancellors of Indus International University and APG Shimla University, who were found ineligible for the post as per UGC norms, put in their papers today. With this, eight of the 10 “ineligible” VCs of various private universities in the state have quit so far.
A tough stand by the HP Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Commission against private universities employing ineligible persons has yielded results. The commission had sent notices to VCs of 10 out of 16 universities as they did not fulfil the norms to occupy the post. — TNS
