NLSIU exec council postpones VC decision, Rao to leave by month-end

Rao to leave NLSIU, but no new permanent VC yet

NLSIU Bangalore’s executive council (EC) has today decided to delay the decision to select the next vice chancellor (VC), we understand from two authoritative sources.

It is understood that current VC, Prof Venkata Rao, has requested that his term should end by the end of this month.

The EC have scheduled another meeting for 23 July to decide on next steps, or possibly to finalise one name amongst the three shortlisted final candidates, but we have not been able to authoritatively confirm the exact next steps at the time of publication.

Supreme Court Justices SA Bobde, Mohan M Shantanagoudar and Bar Council of India (BCI) chairman Manan Kumar Mishra will be making a final determination on the process then.

The EC had been expected to make a decision today, with students having made a wish list in a letter yesterday for their ideal VC.
