The syndicate of Bhim Rao Ambedkar Bihar University (BRABU) adopted nearly 10 resolutions, including cancelling promotions of 400 teachers and giving nod to new courses, during its stormy session on Tuesday evening.
The syndicate meeting at Muzafarpur, 70 km north of Patna, also approved a proposal to open a new department for running bachelor of education (B Ed) and master of education (M Ed) courses. The two courses are, at present, being run by the department of philosophy.
The four-hour meeting was halted for some time as syndics created ruckus, alleging that they had not been given prior information about the agenda.
BRABU vice chancellor (VC) Amrendra Narayan Yadav said the meeting was called in haste on the direction of the Patna high court.
“We have decided to clear pending court cases to minimise the financial burden being incurred on legal battles. Most of the cases are related to regularisation of courses that were started during the previous VC’s tenure without completing legal formalities. So, we are facing difficulties in conducting the examination due to lack of necessary orders from the office of the chancellor-cum-governor of the state,” he said.
Yadav said the meeting witnessed pandemonium when the proposal to cancel promotion of teachers was tabled.
“We have been getting complaints regarding irregularities in promotion of teachers. Even notification was not issued in this regard. So, we have decided to cancel the decision on promotion. The syndicate gave its nod to regulations of B Ed and M Phil courses, earlier passed by the Academic Council, Affiliation Committee and other statutory bodies,” said the VC. All the proposals would now be tabled at the senate meeting, scheduled on July 6, before sending them to the chancellor’s office, he added.
