The management ofSinhgad Technical Education Society (STES) on Thursday faced scrutiny on the non-payment of salaries by a three-member committee, constituted by the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU).
The management of STES have also confirmed that the committee has provided 19 questions to them, that will have to be answered by February 16.
These 19 questions are to judge all the points kept forth by both the parties.“At the meeting, we were told that the committee has clearly asked the management a concrete schedule of payment of the dues, and some other facts,” said Sachin Shinde, a former Sinhgad institute professor who is spear-heading the agitation.
SPPU registrar,Arvind Shaligram, said, “The three members, one from the office ofDirectorate of Technical Education, Maharashtra (DTE) and two from SPPU, will be inspecting every nuance of the case and file a report to us.
“The vice-chancellor will then take note of the report, study it and pass the suitable action,” Shaligram added.
“Well, we have been asking for a change in management by a government representative, so let’s see where it leads to. De-affiliation is another option that was put forth in the meeting,” added Shinde.
Earlier, during a press conference, vice-chancellor of Pune varsity, Nitin Karmalkar had shared his reservations as regards de-affiliation.
“The reason why we don’t want to reach a point of de-affiliation is that this will have negative repercussions on both the teachers and the students, which we sincerely don’t want. We will try and evade this and resolve it in another way,” Karmalkar said.
The committee met both, the management at the Erandwane office and the agitating staff at Vadgaon, to discuss the specifics of the issue and move towards a solution.
