The Union human resources ministry (HRD) served a notice to Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology (MANIT) to revert the promotions of about 20 professors and associate professors who were 'unlawfully' promoted last year.

According to sources, MANIT director Appu Kuttan had given promotions to assistant professors as associate professors and associate professors to professors by relaxing rules. After the promotions, some associate professors raised objections.

"We have received the notice from HRD ministry... the ministry was misled as registrar gave wrong information to it. But, we will form a committee and the committee will take decision on it after checking all the facts," he said.

He denied giving the promotions out of turn.
