Selection panel for new Jammu varsity VC soon

With the three-year term of incumbent Vice Chancellor (VC) of Jammu University Prof RD Sharma expiring on March 12, a search-cum-selection committee will be formed soon for the appointment of his successor.

According to highly placed sources, the incumbent VC may be asked to continue to handle the administrative affairs of the university till his successor is named as the decision with regard to the constitution of a search-cum-selection committee for the new VC will be taken soon.

The VC, however, will have no authority to take any policy matter decision or initiate any selection process for various senior vacant posts within the institution.

“So far, no committee has been constituted for the selection and appointment of the new VC despite the fact that the term of Prof RD Sharma is ending on March 12. There is every possibility that Prof Sharma may be asked to continue as the VC till his successor is named,” sources added.

Sources said the authorities were probably waiting for the High Court verdict pertaining to the petition filed by Kashmir University VC Prof Khurshid Iqbal Andrabi, who had approached the court through senior advocate Zaffar A Shah pleading that his term as the VC was for five years instead of erstwhile three years. However, the High Court dismissed the petition on February 16.

Meanwhile, the sources also said: “The search-cum-selection panel is likely to be constituted anytime soon after the 17th convocation of Jammu University which is scheduled to be held on March 4.”
