It is heartening to know that Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) has identified Best Practices of various States under Rashtriya Ucchatar Sikshya Abhiyan (RUSA) Program.
 
“MHRD has identified that in India as a whole the transparent procedure of Merit Based Selection of Vice Chancellor (VC)s adopted in Odisha is the correct model and all the States should try to emulate this method”, said a senior official in the Government.
 
In fact, known as an impartial and honest Governor, Dr.Jamir as Chancellor has appointed about 10 Vice Chancellors in various Universities during his incumbency period and Merit Based Transparent Selection method has been adopted, which has been appreciated by MHRD.
 
Dr.Jamir has urged the VCs to adopt a Non Negotiable Academic Calendar for timely conduct of examination, publication of results and distribution of certificates, which are the indicators of healthy functioning of the Academic System of a University.
 
Similarly, fixation of date of admission and registration as well as fixation of total numbers of Academic Days in a Session should be notified before commencement of the Academic Session and is needed to be followed scrupulously, urged the Chancellor.
