RMLNLU VC Balraj Chauhan headed to holiday, new-VC hunt begins

RMLNLU Lucknow vice chancellor (VC) Balraj Chauhan will finish his five-year tenure as VC at the university on 2 January. The university has formed a search committee to appoint the new VC, and has invited applications for the post latest by Monday.

Chauhan, who was previously the director at NLIU Bhopal, said: “After being associated with two universities the plan is to relax for a while.”

“If the search committee is not able to provide the new VC by January I may continue for some time,” he added.

Chauhan told Legally India he left his position at NLIU mid-term after being offered the office of VC at RMLNLU in 2008. Before NLIU, he has held the roles of director, legal affairs at Lucknow University, member UP State Law Commission, and member UP State Legal Services Authority.

He is presently also a Nalsar Hyderabad general council member.

Earlier today, Legally India reported that Chauhan and the RMLNLU administration was rebuked by the Allahabad high court for ill-handling a disciplinary proceeding against its student and not concluding the case until the student’s death two years later.

In August, Legally India reported that RMLNLU students had complained to UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav about the poor state of affairs on the campus, including bad placements, administration, lack of professionalism, and no ear for student grievances.
