Delhi University Vice Chancellor placed under suspension amid allegations of ‘dereliction of duty’

New Delhi October 28th

President Ram Nath Kovind approved the education ministry’s proposal to suspend Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi and ordered an inquiry against him for administrative lapses due to his unauthorised absence. Tyagi has been on leave ever since he was admitted to AIIMS on July 2 under “emergency medical condition”, Indian Express reported.

The education ministry had asked the President to allow inquiry against the vice-chancellor after a dispute over two appointments to the university last week. On Tuesday night, the President allowed the inquiry against the vice-chancellor.

Tyagi also failed to pay heed to repeated reminders for filling up faculty posts lying vacant for years, and his handling of last year’s teachers’ protest over reappointment of ad hoc teachers was also under scrutiny.
