One of the staff members who received the re-joining letter on Monday, Durvesh Dandekar, said, “While we have seen a ray of hope after a long time, some of us are also worried about the technicalities. For instance, many of us had been transferred to Lonavla campus from various other campuses in Pune, and this reinstatement will be at the transferred office, not the previous one.We sent a grievance letter to Savitribai Phule Pune university. Hopefully, a meeting will be held by November 30 to revert to our original campuses after reinstatement.” The institute, has been unresponsive in terms of these developments.
