The Director of State Higher Education B R Gaekwad had earlier also probed the appointment of Dr Ramteke as CoE of RTMNU. However, the RTMNU Administration had upheld the appointment of Dr Ramteke as correct and valid. The University’s stand forced re-investigation by the Director Gaekwad, who again found the appointment invalid. Now, the probe report would be submitted to the State Government. A letter on this aspect has already been sent to RTMNU’s Registrar. Earlier, the University had stood behind the CoE and had stated Dr Ramteke’s appointment as correct and valid. The varsity had sent a letter to the office of Director of State Higher Education and sought a reply regarding the rules and regulations on which the appointment of Dr Ramteke should be cancelled.

LACK OF TEACHING AND EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE:

The Higher Education Director through Divisional Joint Director had ruled Dr Ramteke’s appointment as null and void. The issue of Dr Ramteke’s appointment as CoE was raised by social worker Prakash Bansod by stating that Dr Ramteke lacked teaching and educational experience for the post. It may be mentioned that for appointment of CoE, teaching and educational experience is required apart from administrative acumen. However, according to the University officials, the RTMNU is an autonomous institute and its all rights and powers are reserved and safeguarded. Other authorities have no rights to interfere in its affairs. Even then, questions are being raised over the appointment of RTMNU’s CoE. The questions themselves are questionable, the varsity officials said.

The Registrar of RTMNU Dr Ashok Gomase said, “We will seek legal advice from an advocate and then only present our position.”
