Mumbai University VC sacked over ‘gross negligence and failure’; Governor forms search committee
The University of Mumbai Vice Chancellor Dr Sanjay V Deshmukh has been sacked by the Governor of Maharashtra C Vidyasagar Rao in his capacity as the Chancellor of the varsity. Despite repeated reminders from the Chancellor’s office to declare results of nearly four lakh students on time, the University administration failed thus causing anger among the student community.
Dr Deshmukh has been removed from the post for his ‘negligence and delay’ in the announcement of examination results. A senior official associated with the Mumbai University administration on condition of anonymity said, “Initially, he was sent on leave some time back and now he has been sacked. Deshmukh has been asked to join his Life Sciences Department, to which he was associated prior to becoming the VC of the University.”
A statement from the Raj Bhavan read, “Today, the Governor and Chancellor of the University of Mumbai CH. Vidyasagar Rao, in exercise of the powers conferred upon him under Section 11(14)(e) of the Maharashtra Public Universities Act, 2016 removed Dr. Sanjay Deshmukh from the office of the Vice-Chancellor, University of Mumbai for his gross negligence and failure in implementing the On-Screen Marking system, to declare the results of examinations held in Summer-2017 within the time limit prescribed in the Act and for his failure to comply with the directions issued by the Chancellor from time to time, regarding early declaration of results.”
In July this year, the Governor appointed an independent officer to monitor the results daily progress report and ordered Deshmukh to set up a "war room" to ensure declaration of results on time and submit a daily progress report to Raj Bhavan.
The Chancellor has also constituted a search Committee under the Chairmanship of Dr. K. Kasturirangan, renowned Indian space scientist for the appointment of the VC of the University. We have been trying to reach Dr. Deshmukh but till the time of filing of the story his phone remained unanswered.
Dr. Deshmukh, was appointed as the VC in July 2015 and succeeded Prof Rajan Welukar, whose term as VC was equally controversial.
