NLU Jodhpur gets new registrar, ties up with IIT, AIIMS, as panel selects 5 potential VCs

Jodhpur VC-ship to change hands

NLU Jodhpur’s vice chancellor (VC) post search committee submitted a shortlist of five names to the university’s chancellor 12 days ago, as the university also appointed a new registrar.

Former Chief Justice of India RC Lahoti, Bar Council of India (BCI) chairman Manan Kumar Mishra, and outgoing NLU Jodhpur registrar Sohan Lal Sharma who sat on the three-member search committee submitted the shortlist on 14 June, confirmed outgoing VC Justice NN Mathur.

Mathur whose term at the university ended on 31 May 2013 is continuing until the new VC is announced.

2007-enrolled IAS officer Shuchi Tyagi joined Jodhpur as registrar on 17 June. Tyagi has an MSc in Botany and an MPhil in Life Sciences from Meerut University and has held various administrative posts, including magisterial ones at Ranchi and Jaisalmer, before her current role as registrar.

She told Legally India that NLU Jodhpur, IIT Jodhpur and AIIMS Delhi have entered into a memorandum of understanding to share faculty and infrastructure. She said that faculty from the other two universities will teach courses such as English and Information Technology at NLU and NLU faculty will also teach courses at IIT and AIIMS. The MoU will be finalised on 10 July.

Tyagi said that the university’s current expenditure was covered entirely by student fees, which are approximately Rs 1.17 lakh per year currently for LLB. “This year I don’t think there is going to be any increase in the fee,” she said. RMLNLU Lucknow decided last week to increase its current annual fee of Rs 80,000.

Jodhpur conducted faculty recruitment on 5 June, adding to its current faculty strength of 56. Faculty was bolstered by four hires in the 12 months preceding June 2013, as reported by Legally India.
