Mumbai: A day after Dalit PhD scholar Ramadam Prini was suspended, the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) on Saturday released a public notice addressing the issue. The notice said, Ramadas, who was enrolled in the integrated MPhil, PhD programme between 2017 and 2019, deferred due to medical reasons, and resumed studies in the 2018-2020 batch. Later transitioning to the PhD programme, Ramadas exhibited a pattern of prioritising personal political agendas over academic commitments despite repeated advisories from the TISS administration.
