Universities are autonomous and the Vice-Chancellor is the leader of a higher education institution. As per the norm he/she should be an eminent academician (is Dr Parhalada fulfill this norms?), excellent administrator (is Dr Parhalada fit this norms?) and also someone who has a high moral stature. (Whose vision is “you people are not born for higher studies” for SC candidates) Since his posting as CC (R&D) from November 2005 at DRDO Hqrs he is staying permanently in C-7, DRDO guest house and RTI from JCDA, Delhi revealed that he is drawing HRA. It is attract disciplinary action as per CCS (CC&A) Rules 1965 action against Dr Prahlada. Why action is not taking because DRDO waiting for proper complaint against Dr Prahlada.
Generally the Vice-Chancellor should be a distinguished educationist or eminent scholar in any of the disciplines or professions, with a high standing in his/her field and adequate administrative experience. We are not generally in favour of appointment of persons who have retired from other fields. An exception to this general recommendation should be made only in the case of very outstanding persons whose association with the universities would be desirable from every point of view and should not be made an excuse for ‘accommodating’ or ‘rewarding’ individuals who do not fulfill the conditions laid down. A vice-chancellor is one who stands for the commitment of the university to scholarship and pursuit of truth. (Kothari Commission 1964-66: 334)
A Vice-chancellor should be a person with vision and (have) qualities of academic leadership with ability for administration. He should command high respect among all sections of the society. The Vice Chancellor should be a distinguished academic…(who) has commitment to the values for which the universities stand…He must have the ability to provide leadership to the university by his academic worth, administrative competence and moral stature. (Kothari Commission 1964-66: 334)
The universities need distinguished and dignified persons as VCs and it is necessary to ensure that they are treated with dignity and regard, which the office merits. (Ramlal Parikh Committee 1993: 15)
The Vice- Chancellor is the most important functionary in a university, not only on the administrative side but also for securing the right atmosphere for the teachers and the students to do their work effectively and in the right spirit. (Report of the Committee on Model Act for Universities 1964: 11).
