Silchar, June 24: The executive council of Assam University here will discuss the issues pertaining to alleged irregular appointments that took place during the period of its last vice-chancellor on June 26.
Sources said some important documents on these “irregular” appointments were now missing. Vice-chancellor Somnath Dasgupta has ordered a probe and asked registrar-in-charge Niranjan Roy to find the documents as soon as possible.
“Even if there was a single appointment without the consent of the executive council we should find it and investigate further,” Dasgupta said.
In a letter to Roy, Dasgupta said as President Pranab Mukherjee was eager to fill all the vacant posts of the university, he (the President) might call up to see all the appointment-related documents.
“It is strange that a 21-year-old university does not have a reservation roster. We are having problems in accomplishing employment-related tasks because of it,” Dasgupta said. “There are even instances where a post was converted into two.”
Sources said over 20 faculties of the university might come under the scrutiny of the executive council.
