Teacher quit letter reminder

Raiganj, Aug. 14: The teacher-in-charge of Raiganj University College, who sent his resignation letter to North Bengal University vice-chancellor on August 7, has decided to send a reminder to the varsity as he has not received a reply yet.

Uttam Kumar Roy had resigned citing health and personal reasons. “I had faxed my resignation to the vice-chancellor on August 7. He called me up and I told him that I could not carry on for health and personal reasons. He asked me to stay on for a few days,” Roy told The Telegraph.

“But I have not heard from him even after a week. The pressure over admissions and administrative issues is taking a toll on me. I will wait for another week. After that, I will send a reminder. That will be my final intimation about my resignation,” he said.

VC Somnath Ghosh, however, said Roy’s resignation was discussed at the college advisory committee meeting on August 8 and rejected. “The resignation was rejected. We have sent it to the higher education department and we are yet to hear from them.”

Roy had stepped aside on September 12, 2013, and again in June this year. On both the occasions, his resignation was rejected.

Ashok Das, a teacher of Raiganj college, said: “This time he is adamant and wants to quit. The college is going to become a varsity. It is imperative that the college has a sound principal or teacher-in-charge.”
