Read Time:39 Second

The Bombay High Court recently issued notice to the Principal Secretary of the Higher and Technical Education department of the Maharashtra government seeking his response to a PIL that demanded implementation of existing provisions of the Maharashtra Public Universities Act, 2016 for appointment of Vice Chancellor (V-C) of Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) – a post that has been vacant since May.

A division bench of Justice Prasanna B Varale and Justice Kishore C Sant on August 12 passed an order on a PIL by Pune resident and retired professor Dhananjay Kulkarni along with Bageshree Manthalkar, senate member of the SPPU.

The plea claimed that there has been no effective and timely implementation of the 2016 Act, adding that important positions in the university, including that of vice chancellor, are lying vacant.
