Pachauri Out, Ashok Chawla New Chairman of TERI

R K Pachauri, facing sexual harassment charges, today proceeded on leave from TERI and TERI Governing Council but will continue to be research institutions’ Executive Vice Chairman, even as B V Sreekantan resigned as Chairman amidst ongoing protests over Pachauri’s elevation.

The decision was announced after the Governing Council meeting today following criticism over appointment of Pachauri as Executive Vice Chairman early this week.

“Pachauri, who had been at the Head of the Institute since 1982 will be on leave from TERI, TERI Governing Council, and TERI University till this is reviewed by the Governing Council given the subjudice nature of the matter,” said a statement issued by TERI.
