May 27, 2018

Mysuru:  Prof. T.K. Umesh, Dean of Physics, University of Mysore (UoM) took charge as the fifth In-charge Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the University of Mysore on Saturday.

UoM has been functioning without a regular VC since Prof. K.S. Rangappa demitted office in Jan. 2017.

After Prof. Rangappa demitted office on Jan. 10, 2017, Prof. Yashwant Dongre, Prof. B. Dayananda Mane, Prof. C. Basavaraju and Prof. Ningamma Betsur had served as in-charge Vice-Chancellors since then and now Prof. T.K. Umesh is the fifth in-charge Vice-Chancellor. His term will last on Sept. 21, 2018 and by then, the Government is expected to appoint a regular  Vice-Chancellor.

Apart from Prof. T.K. Umesh, the Government had sent the names of Deans Prof. Ayesha of Commerce Department, Prof. Mahadev of Humanities and Prof. Mathi Alagan of Education Department to the Governor for appointment of in-charge VC.

But the Governor appointed Prof. T.K. Umesh, who was the senior-most among the recommended Deans.

    Shamefull! how many in-charge-VC’s have to come and go. Its like a puppet show. Something strange is going on. Allot of corruption must be the reason no full time VC wants to apply for the job.

    Also I am a victim of UOM. I did their online degree, and completed it by passing all the examsn and im still waiting for the degree certificate. Anyone in the same situation?
