Delhi University's Kirori Mal College principal removed from office

NEW DELHI: Acting principal of Delhi University's Kirori Mal College has been removed from office with immediate effect following allegations of financial mismanagement. 

The decision was taken at a meeting of the governing body (GB) on Tuesday night. 

"The GB has decided that the officiating principal SP Gupta be relieved from office pending an enquiry against him and Dinesh Khattar from the department of mathematics will take charge as the principal," a governing body member said.

The decision comes in wake of allegations of mismanagement of funds granted by the University Grants Commission (UGC) to conduct its national eligibility test (NET) in 2012-13. 

A committee constituted by UGC to inquire into the allegations found that the principal could not produce sufficient documents to account for Rs 89,22,161 of Rs 1.5 crore that the UGC had granted to the college for the conduct of five exams — three rounds of NET and two for the recruitment of education officers. 

"Gupta, will however, continue to work at the department of commerce. He has been given a chance to explain his position and three-months time has been given to him to settle the issue with UGC," the member added. 

Gupta was appointed as the officiating principal in August, 2012.

  2. As a Jersey survivor, I find this interesting. See, the corruption in Jersey is so thick, so foul, so part of everyday life, that,as writers from write paper for mewebsite report, both the Republicans and the Democrats are lousy with it. They'll have spitting contests, but no one goes too far, because each has so much dirt on the other that they can summon at will that they don't risk it. Don't know if this will have the bounce back that it would on the state, county or miserable little corrupt tin-pot town level, but I hope it does, I'd like to see two weasels killed with one stone.
