High Court warns RTMNU to improve its affairs or face the Administrator

The remarks of the High Court that several questions are being raised over the poor state of affairs in the RTMNU since past few years left the University authorities no place to hide their embarrassed faces. “Every petty issue is being decided through the Court. Recently, the issue of not a single regular teacher in 250 colleges reached to doors of the High Court. If the working system is not changed for better the High Court directs to appoint an Administrator to look after the state of affairs of the RTMNU in best possible way,” the High Court warned. The learned words of the High Court slapped the face of the Nagpur University with blackest blot ever.

Nagpur News: The image of Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) licked the dust when the Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court pushed it to the wall. The remarks of the High Court that several questions are being raised over the poor state of affairs in the RTMNU since past few years left the University authorities no place to hide their embarrassed faces. “Every petty issue is being decided through the Court. Recently, the issue of not a single regular teacher in 250 colleges reached to doors of the High Court. If the working system is not changed for better the High Court directs to appoint an Administrator to look after the state of affairs of the RTMNU in best possible way,” the High Court warned. The learned words of the High Court slapped the face of the Nagpur University with blackest blot and the image took the severest beating in the 90th Anniversary Celebration of the University.

If the Administrator is appointed, the powers of the Vice-Chancellor and the Pro-Vice Chancellor would be conferred with the Administrator. The Administrator would be the ultimate authority to decide any issue related to RTMNU. The appointment of the Administrator will leave other top officials of powerless. According to the rules laid down, the appointment of Administrator takes place when an institute goes bankrupt.

DISCUSSIONS WITH UNITS MUST:

Adv D K Agrawal, Senate Member, RTMNU, lamented that the RTMNU, instead of resolving any issue at its level, is rushing to the courts for hammering out a solution every now and then. The aggrieved students, too, knock the doors of courts as the University authorities utterly fail to come out with a solution to their problems. Such situation and the nasty state of affairs certainly warrant questioning. Court deliver judgements on education related matters according to Acts and evidence. The RTMNU must discuss the education related problems with various units and find out solutions itself. But it is not happening. The disturbing outcome is that the problems which should have been resolved in home have been reaching the courts. Just frustrating and disappointing.

VICE-CHANCELLOR PROVING HELPLESS:

The RTMNU’s academic calendar was running smoothly after the Kohchade episode. However, the present Vice-Chancellor Dr Vilas Sapkal was always found fumbling when it comes to final decision. Then it may be of increased marks episode, the issue of women’s exploitation in Saoner,  BCCI paper leak issue or the matter of recognition to the colleges, the VC was unable to reach to the decisive action. Dozens of burning issues are still pending with Disciplinary Action Committee. It is expected the Vice-Chancellor bring drastic changes in system for betterment to the RTMNU and its students, asserted Mahendra Nirbate, Senate Member, RTMNU.

SENATE ALSO QUESTIONED POOR WORKING:

Adv Manmohan Bajpayee, Senate Member, RTMNU, said, “The Senate was frequently questioning the style of working, of course, poor and non-productive. The Senate several times threw light on several crucial matter but no visible improvement is seen. This is the only reason that the High Court has directed the RTMNU in the bitterest words to improve its state of affairs. But truth is also bitter. At least now the RTMNU should improve its style of working and put the interest of the students on top of the list.
