Time flies. NKC's tenure just has a few months left. Old timers will recall how his appointment was shadily done. The question is, will we see a repeat? Will Chandrachud play an active role?
Chandu won't do anything. It will either be NKC again or someone even more subservient to the TMC. The SJA will be sleeping as usual.
NKC will only have 6 months left before he turns 70 once his tenure ends. At the most, he can get an extension for that period. While he has several faults of his own, it is also true that he would be leaving the place better in terms of publication, research, infra and collaborations than he had found it. One wishes he had been stronger in terms of opposition to state government interference though, especially that done through a retired HC judge in the EC who is a state stooge.
I want to say with this with open heart - stop talking about Nujs :)
My hunch is Arup Kumar Poddar. I am actually willing to bet money it will be him.
One of these people (all disastrous):

- Indrajit Dube (NLU Meghalaya VC)

- Rathin Bandopadhyay (North Bengal Univ)

- AKP (Podu)
Nothing wrong with Dube. Has a better publication and research record compared with all NLU VCs, Sudhir included.
Just see the condition of the faculty - people from north Bengal university have to be elected now - geez
North Bengal University has a SCOPUS indexed journal now. How many NLUs other than NLSIU has one now?
I think logically speaking, it should be Dr Shameek Sen and no one else. He has both the credibility as an academician and goodwill as a student friendly faculty to be on the coveted post. He is young, humble, honest and a good human being. If the authorities are reading this and want to have someone who should be given a long run considering his age, they should not look anywhere else by Dr Sen.

No offenses to the other gentlemen proposed by fellow commentators, I am sure they must be good, but for this job and for the time being Dr Sen is the best bet.
Let him become Professor first by the end of this year.
By all means he would be a great VC. The question is however, does Shameek Sir even want the post?
Nujs has no future. From Menon, Mitra and MP Singh, the place goes to NKC. Most of good faculty left. Its on way to become Hazra law college. Sad for alumni and we'll wishers.
Still can beat you in any metric that you choose to name for a law grad. Care to compete?
His tenure ends in June 2024, which technically speaking can be counted in months, though it is still more than a year away.
VC NLS, should come to NUJS as both of them ends their term almost the same time.
Sudhir will seek an extension for sure. He won't come anywhere near NUJS. People here don't like dictatorial VCs. His room was bombed with crackers the last time he was here and tried to pull his shenanigans. NUJS students aren't meek and docile like NLSIU people.
