Sabujkali Sen to officiate as Visva-Bharati V-C till full-time V-C appointed

6 Mar 2018

Sabujkali Sen will be the officiating Vice-Chancellor (V-C) of Visva-Bharati University till the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) appoints a full-term V-C of the Central university, the MHRD has said in a letter.
Registrar Sougata Chatterjee told PTI today that the MHRD ministry had sent a letter on Monday stating that Sen be asked to continue as the officiating V-C till a full-time V-C was named by the Centre.
Sen's term as the director of Studies Educational Innovations and Rural Reconstruction of Visva-Bharati had expired on February 24. When asked whether she had received the news of the HRD ministry letter, Sen told PTI, "Yes, I have heard about it."
The MHRD had directed the Visva-Bharati university authorities on February 22 to nominate two members for a Search Committee to select a new V-C for the varsity. The Central university has been functioning without a full-time VC for the last two years after the then V-C Sushanta Dattagupta was dismissed from the university in February 2016. (PTI)
