Delhi University Vice-Chancellor suspended

  • President of India, Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday issued suspension orders for Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi on grounds of ‘dereliction of duty.’

  • The President has also directed an inquiry for the same. The move comes amid the ongoing power tussle in Delhi University.

  • Mr.Tyagi has been on leave since July 2 when he was admitted to AIIMS under emergency medical condition. The government had on July 17 given Pro-VC PC Joshi the charge of VC, until Tyagi resumes office.

  • A controversy had emerged when Mr.Tyagi had removed Pro-VC PC Joshi and appointed Geeta Bhatt in his place. During this period Mr.Tyagi was not officially back to duty.

  • Prior to his termination Mr.Joshi notified the appointment of a new registrar, Vikas Gupta, whose interview had been completed and appointment cleared by the executive council on Wednesday.

  • However, the same day, Tyagi had approved and notified the appointment of P C Jha as acting registrar and director of the South Campus, without the prior approval of the executive council.
