The JNU Teachers Association on Tuesday questioned the delay in appointment of new Vice Chancellor of the university an year after the previous head's tenure ended.

"Directives issued by the Ministry of Education and provisions of JNU's own statutes explicitly forbid VC whose tenures are formally over from taking decisions on policy matters of a substantive nature. Important decisions related to policy matters are being pushed through by the caretaker VC, without any discussion, that have far reaching consequences for JNU in the longer run," the teachers association alleged.
