Alleging that the Vice-Chancellor of Manipur University, H Nandakumar Sarma has turned the varsity a favorite place for indulging in high level nepotism and corruption, Democratic Students’ Alliance of Manipur (DESAM) has appealed the HRD Ministry to constitute a fact finding committee at the earliest.
Speaking to media persons at Keishampat HQ of DESAM, President of the students’ body, Moirangthem Angamba said that the VC has illegally appointed his wife Kamlabati as Assistant Finance Officer of the varsity.
Appointment of Kamlabati, who has already crossed 60 years of age as Assistant FO is gross violation of guidelines set by Ministry of Personnel, PG & Pension (Department of Personnel & Training), Government of India regarding extension/re-appointment to Central Government servant beyond the age of superannuation, said Angamba.
Showing a copy of Office Memorandum of Department of Personnel & Training, Angamba said that FR 56 (d) of guidelines regarding extension/re-employment to Central Government servants dated December 9, 2002 states that no government servant shall be granted extension of service beyond the age of 60 years.
In another case of indulging favoritism by the VC, an Assistant Professor of Manipur Dance Department (P Lilabati Devi), who is on probation, has been granted Extra Ordinary Leave (without pay) for 180 days (six months) on maternity ground.
A maternity leave of six (6) months is also given to his former PhD student, Dr K Nomita Devi, who is currently working as Assistant Professor, Department of Physics, Manipur University, said the President of DESAM.
Besides, the Vice Chancellor has also secretly appointed 101 number of contract employees without any employment notifications and DPC. With all these instances of granting leaves and secret appointments at the own will of the Vice Chancellor, it is evident that the present Vice Chancellor is in favoritism in appointment.
The students’ body also demanded a probe by a high level committee of Human Resource Development Ministry into the allegation.
With all the facts and documents, Angamba said that DESAM would submit a memorandum to the HRD Ministry and Prime Minister urging their immediate intervention and save the academic atmosphere of the Central University.
