Appointments of Regular Staff

In a 2013 interview with The Hindu the Vice-Chancellor, Major General (Dr.) Ranjit Singh, made a commitment that the adhocism will be done away with. He stated that advertisements for replacement staff were being made under proper scrutiny and he was hoping to have them in post in the near future. The regular appointments were made in January 2014.

Making Peace with the local people

When the land for the University was leased out by the villagers for a nominal rent, local and state leaders promised that the local villagers will be given priority for admission and jobs. Since

then, M.M.Pallam Raju, Union Minister for Human Resource Development, has told the villagers that the Central Universities Act, 2009, does not allow reservations for jobs based on domicile. The people felt cheated and no relief was given to them.
