NEW DELHI: The associate professor of Bharati College, Saloni Gupta, has written to Delhi University saying she has not received any appointment order/ letter to join as the acting principal of the college.
This was in response to the letter sent by DU to the college chairman alleging violation of rules in appointing the officiating principal. HT reported the same on June 4.
The letter sent by university to the college chairman said the appointment procedure followed was a violation of Ordinance 18 of the university statute.
But Gupta said she was not appointed and was being dragged into the issue. “I had merely given my acceptance to an inquiry made from me by the chairperson of the governing body of the college regarding my willingness to shoulder the responsibility of the post offered to me,” said Gupta in the letter to the joint registrar. She said she had insisted that DU approval be sought before the appointment.
The term of the officiating principal Kanta Rani Bhatia ended on June 2.
“It is a routine procedure that has been followed. Now the additional charge has been given to the bursar of the college,” said Sneh Mohan, chairman of the governing body.
