THE HEAD of Allahabad University’s Ancient History, Culture and Archaeology Department Prof RP Tripathi on Wednesday issued notices to half-a-dozen teachers and two research scholars for failing to take their classes regularly.

The action followed a surprise visit to the department by Vice-Chancellor Prof Rajen Harshe on Wednesday morning.

The vice-chancellor visited the department around 11 am, almost within an hour of joining office after returning from New Delhi. He found a number of teachers missing from the department.

After meeting the head of the department, the V-C also met students.
He questioned them about the teaching imparted in their respective subjects.

Sources said the surprise visit, the first by a V-C in a long time in any department of the varsity, was the result of complaints from some students, who had met the officiating V-C Prof Janak Pandey on Tuesday.

They brought to his notice the fact that teachers of the Ancient History and Political Science Departments were not taking their classes regularly, causing great hardship to them. Prof Harshe is believed to have acted this morning on coming to know of the complaint.

The V-C instructed the head of the Ancient History, Culture and Archaeology Department Prof RP Tripathi to act against the teachers guilty of neglecting classes and also ensure that teaching work was properly attended to in the department.

Following the orders, Prof Tripathi issued notices to six teachers and two Junior Research Fellows, informing them about the students’ complaint, the V-C’s surprise visit and his orders for action against them.

The teachers and the JRFs have been instructed to attend to their classes as per the time-table, failing which action will be initiated against them.

On being contacted, Prof RP Tripathi confirmed the V-C’s visit and the fact the notices were issued to six teachers and two JRFs.

Prof Tripathi however refused to name the persons against whom the notices have been issued.
