SKUAST-K Scientists and Teachers Association (SSTA) Sunday urged authorities to expedite the process for appointment of VC to institution. Presently, the institution is headed by an acting VC.
"For last two months the institution is headed by acting VC. The search committee was asked to come up with final list of eligible persons who could be appointed as VC. But so far it has not come up with any list," Dr SA Dar, President of the association said in handout.
"If the government believes that this university is an important institution, it should not further delay the appointment of VC," he said.
The SSTA appealed the Chancellor and the Pro-chancellor of the varsity to intervene for the appointment of the new Vice-Chancellor.
