Anoop Kumar stresses need to restitch entire NU framework as Dr Deshpande takes charge

The outgoing Acting Vice Chancellor Anoop Kumar assures to pursue removal of encroachment on the RTMNU land


Nagpur: “I will pursue removal of the encroachment on the university land and make it encroachment free”, said Acting Vice Chancellor Anoop Kumar, during his farewell speech on Monday.

Dr. Vinayak Deshpande, who was holding the post of Pro Vice Chancellor of Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) since the past six months, took charge as Acting Vice Chancellor Anoop Kumar, who is also the Divisional Commissioner, Nagpur.

During his speech, Kumar particularly highlighted the working of the university and how it should go further. He said it needs to restitch the entire framework. He recalled how as challenge and service, he took up the job as Acting VC, with a mission to undo the negative image of the university.

He expressed happiness over the successful holding of the 100th Convocation. At the same time, Anoop Kumar asked for drastic changes in the university and added  that time has come to pull up the socks and restore the normative framework in PhD. “Research work should have utility to it, as presently the research work is very devalued”, said Kumar.

The outgoing Acting VC emphasized on applied research work in university, and asked to look beyond heritage and for pursuing best education and best research in the university. Not only Engineering but concentration on social engineering and social science is required. Revaluation system is very badly managed, examination reforms are the need of the hour, asserted Kumar.

Acting Vice Chancellor Dr. Vinayak Deshpande, speaking on the occasion, said that Anoop Kumar has completed his work perfectly and has been a guiding source for us. Got to learn a lot from him like how to run an administration. It will be a tough job to get into his shoes and follow his working style as there will be comparisons into working styles. However, I will follow his points and will do the best for the university.

The function was held at Dikshant Sabhagruha. The administrative officers and the Heads of the Departments of RTMNU bid a fond farewell to Kumar. SP Kane, Prof Veena Dadhe, and Dr Shrikant Komawar shared their experiences working with Kumar.  All applauded Kumar for his efforts and impeccable work, be it holding the 100th convocation, banned colleges issue, NAAC visit and many other issues were resolved at his initiative.
