SC green signal to AMU VC selection

Our Correspondent / New Delhi

The Supreme Court today gave green signal to the appointment of new vice chancellor at the prestigious Aligarh Muslim University (AMU). The apex court rejected the petition seeking stay on the process of appointment of the vice chancellor.

AMUThe Supreme Court found no merit in the contention of the petitioner that the process was in violation of UGC regulations. The petitioner Abrar Ahmad alleged that the whole selection process was flawed as two of the three candidates shortlisted by the university for the appointment of the vice chancellor did not fulfil the eligibility criterion.

As per UGC regulations, a vice chancellor should have ten years of experience as a professor. Two candidates, namely Dr Shahid Jameel and Dr Abu Saleh Sharief, are not professors.

However, the court was convinced by the arguments of AMU lawyer Raju Ramchandran that the two candidates were established academicians in their respective field. While Dr. Jameel is a respected scientist, Dr Sharief is a renowned economist.
Interestingly, Prof Tariq Mansoor, who scored the highest vote in AMU Court which shortlisted the three names, has been accused of his involvement in a recruitment scam in AMU.

AMU has sent three names to the govt for the approval by the President of India who is also the Visitor of the university. The President will appoint any one of the three candidates as the next vice chancellor of AMU.
