Student organizations demand urgent reforms at Dhanamanjuri University

IT News
Imphal, July 10:

Amidst an ongoing hunger strike by the Dhanamanjuri University Students’ Union (DMUSU), demanding the appointment of a regular Vice-Chancellor and Registrar, six student organizations, MSF, DESAM, KSA, SUK, AIMS and another student body, have raised serious concerns about the current state of Dhanamanjuri University. Speaking to the press today, the student groups highlighted the need for immediate reforms to address multiple administrative and academic issues impacting the institution. The statement was issued in the context of these escalating protests and demands.
The student organizations highlighted critical vacancies in key administrative positions at the university, including Vice-Chancellor, Registrar, Controller of Examination, and Finance Officer. These positions are currently filled by in-charge officials, which the coalition argues is inadequate and hinders the university’s operations.
Undergraduate students are facing disruptions as the 5th Semester regular exams have been announced, but the 2nd and 4th Semester exams are delayed. This has caused significant stress for students preparing for their final semester exams.
Postgraduate students are also affected, as exams for the 4th Semester of various PG departments, which were supposed to be conducted in December 2022-23, are still pending. This delay extends the duration of PG courses and impacts students’ academic and career plans. Research scholars are particularly disadvantaged by the university’s failure to secure UGC’s 12B status, which prevents it from receiving grants and projects, thereby severely limiting research opportunities and funding.
The coalition has urged the authorities to urgently address these issues, stressing the necessity of appointing regular officials to key administrative positions and resolving the ongoing academic and research challenges.
In a positive development, Registrar Lairenlakpam Nivedita has issued an advertisement for the appointment of a regular Vice-Chancellor, indicating a step towards addressing one of the key demands of the protesting students.
