THE HEIGHT of inefficiency amongst the officials of Indore’s four-star Devi Ahilya Vishwa Vidyalaya (DAVV) was seen when the Vice Chancellor had to take cudgels on behalf of a physically challenged retired employee in providing him pension due from last six years.
V-C Rajkamal said that he was recently informed about the case of a former Head of Department (HoD) BK Pasi who had not been cleared pension for the past six years. Furthermore, Pasi was suffering from paralysis. Rajkamal visited him at his residence and assured him all possible help.
Pasi, incidentally, is the recipient of the Life Time Achievement Award given by the University Grants Commission (UGC). The state of affairs of such a person moved the V-C who resolved to take personal initiative and measures for passing the blocked pension on humanitarian grounds before getting final approval from the Executive Committee (EC).
The matter was presented before the EC during their meeting held in the city on Thursday and as was expected the EC members unanimously passed the decision.
While on the one hand officials of the level of the V-C are taking personal initiative to make matters smooth, on the other, employees of other ranks in all departments of the university and especially accounts have become notorious for their style of functioning.
The accounts department had even stopped payment of monthly salary due from last two months to former V-C CS Chaddha.
