AMU administration sincere to resolve PhD candidates? woes, urges them to maintain discipline
ALIGARH October 29: A committee of senior officials constituted by the AMU Vice Chancellor, Prof. Tariq Mansoor, held discussion with some students regarding the PhD admission test 2017-18. The committee examined the case of four students of Faculty of Engineering and Technology and they were allowed to appear in the interview for PhD admission. An inquiry has been instituted to ascertain the facts regarding the grievances of PhD candidates in the Department of Hindi.
The committee conducted discussions with the agitated students and asked them to submit their grievances individually, assuring that the answer books of complaining individual students will be re-scrutinized. If discrepancies are found and complaints are valid, the university has assured that another round of interview will be held for such applicants.
The University has expressed concern over such students continuing with their agitation despite agreeing to the proposal, disrupting interview process in some departments and taking law in their hands. The University has made it clear that the grievances of the PhD candidates will be inquired into and resolved as per rules, provided the students do not resort to disruptive measures hindering the smooth functioning of the University.
The University had announced a schedule for admission test and interview for admission to PhD in various departments of study for the session 2017-18. The candidates obtaining 40 marks in the written test were called for presentation-cum-interview, as per the UGC regulation. However, a small section of students obtaining less than 50% marks in the written test, started agitation levelling allegations against the administration.
