PPU VC lays stress on infra development | Patna News


PATNA: Acting vice-chancellor (VC) of Patliputra University (PPU) Surendra Pratap Singh on Monday held a meeting with principals of all colleges affiliated to the university to discuss various issues related to resumption of academic activities, holding pending university examinations and releasing results on time. Officials of the university also attended the meeting.
The VC focused more on infrastructure development in the colleges and NAAC accreditation.
Principal of M D College, Naubatpur, Kanhaiya Prasad Sinha called for digital tracking of files in the university and colleges. “Innovative practices are required to get better NAAC score,” he added.
J N Lal College principal Sanjoy Kumar raised the issue of acute paucity of teachers in the college. “Departments of mathematics and physics do not have a single teacher. There is hardly four non-teaching staff in the college to manage the college counters and office work,” he said.
A N College principal S P Sahi, College of Commerce, Arts and Science principal Tapan Shandaliya, B D College principal Pravin Kumar and Ganga Devi Mahila College principal Rita Kumari Singh also called for academic development in the colleges.
Meanwhile, Patliputra University Teachers’ Association (PPUTA) has described the move of the university to transfer principal of M D College, Naubatpur, Kanhaiya Prasad Sinha as “arbitrary”. The university had earlier notified Anjum Ashrafi of the B S College, Danapur as professor incharge of M D College. PPUTA president A K Singh Thakur said the university should withdraw the controversial notification as it has not mentioned new place of posting or acceptance of premature retirement petition of Sinha.
Sinha said he had applied for premature retirement on health grounds in October 2020, but the university has not responded yet.
PPU registrar Jitendra Kumar said the university has kept Sinha’s transfer notification in abeyance. “He can continue as principal of M D College till disposal of his premature retirement petition,” he said.
