However, her appointment has not gone down well with members of the University’s Executive Council (EC).The EC members say that rules of the university ordinance were not followed during the constitution of the apex committee.

“The rule 7 (2) (b) for the appointment of the principal of colleges other than maintained by the university states that the apex committee should consist of Vice-Chancellor, Pro V-C, visitor’s nominee, chairperson of the college governing body and two members of EC, nominated by it. However, we as EC members never nominated anyone. In fact, we came to know of it after the appointment,” said J L Gupta, an EC member.

There was only one EC nominee, M K Pandit, in the committee, Gupta said. The chairman of the college governing body Ajay Shriram, however,said all rules were followed in the appointment process.
