Prez nod to sacking of Viswa Bharati VC

President Pranab Mukherjee has approved the dismissal of Viswa Bharati Vice Chancellor Sushanta Dattagupta, the first instance of sacking of the VC of a Central University, HRD ministry officials said.

“The President, who is the Visitor of Central Universities, has approved the dismissal of Viswa Bharati VC Dattagupta, as proposed by the ministry,” Ghanshyam Goel, the spokesperson for the HRD ministry said.

Earlier this month, the HRD ministry had sent the file to the President recommending dismissal of Dattagupta, who was facing allegations of financial and administrative irregularities, after the Law Ministry and the Attorney General approved the procedures followed by it in the matter.
