UBS Chairman Dinesh Gupta tenders resignation alongwith cheque of Rs 276000Update 22.02.2011 UBS chairperson takes back resignation papers
CHANDIGARH: Chairperson of University Business School (UBS) of Panjab University took back his resignation on Monday, bringing an end to the drama that ensued after February 16 when he had put in his papers. UBS chairperson DK Gupta claimed that old students and friends got in touch with him after the incident and convinced him to join back the university. ''Last few days, after my resignation, were really good as over 100 people came to meet me following which I came to know how much people support me,'' he said.
Gupta had submitted his resignation on February 16 and had also surrendered a cheque of Rs 2.76 lakh, three months salary to PU. On February 4, M.Com students of UBS had levelled allegations against Gupta that he was using derogatory language and had subjected them to extreme hostility since their first day in the department. The girls continued their protest till February 14 when the chairperson, who was out of city, arrived back and resolved the issue with the students. However, a day later he resigned from the post following media reports that he had apologized to the students.
Gupta said even after resigning from the post he was in touch with the department and was monitoring the summer-training for students. ''Keeping in mind that the summer training of students should not suffer I monitored the placements for which a company visited the department on February 20,'' he said. Referring to the allegations levelled against him that led to his resignation, Gupta said there should be a mechanism that should be activated when there is some kind of crisis in the university.
CHANDIGARH: The MCom students of University Business School ( UBS) of Panjab University, who levelled serious allegations against the chairperson few days back, have claimed that they are being pressurized through various channels to take back the complaint. The students claimed that the university authorities are not serious in considering their demand.
While addressing a press conference at PU, students said they are being consistently pressurized to take back their complaint.
'On Wednesday, when we reached the class someone had written the word 'Fear the dark' on the black board,' students claimed. Some of the girls students alleged, 'Panjab University Campus Student Council (PUCSC) leaders have also refused to help us.'
The student leaders who were supposed to attend the meeting chaired by dean university instructions ( DUI) were also not present on Wednesday. Students claimed they would continue their agitation against the injustice. A candle light march was also organized to highlight their issue.
17.02.2011 Panjab University teacher resigns
Panjab University (PU) professor, who was accused by his students of making derogatory remarks, Thursday submitted his resignation to the varsity
Dinesh Kumar Gupta resigned both as the chairperson of the University Business School (UBS) and from the post of professor, and tendeerd to the university a cheque of Rs.276,000 in lieu of three-month notice.
About 25 female students of the fourth-semester of M.Com (e-commerce) had submitted a written complaint to Vice Chancellor R.C. Sobti Feb 4 protesting derogatory remarks of Gupta. A special panel was formed to look into these allegations Feb 9 and classes of the department were suspended Feb 10. Intensifying their campaign, students launched a sit-in outside Sobti's office Feb 12.
At a meeting of the varsity authorities held Feb 14 Gupta expressed his regret over the issue in writing. Following this, students ended their protest. "I did everything to maintain the dignity and prestige of PU and UBS and welfare of students. But now it may not be possible to lead the institution under present prevailing circumstances," said Gupta in his resignation letter.
"Neither students nor the faculty members are happy with me and my decisions. I am taking the right step. I do not want to enter into any argument with anyone." However, PU authorities claimed they were trying to resolve the issue. "The VC (vice chancellor) has not accepted the resignation of Professor Gupta. This issue would be resolved and we would make sure that dignity of the faculty members remained safe," said Naval Kishore, Dean of Students' Welfare (DSW).
Students' protests and strike have haunted PU teachers in the past also. Earlier this month, authorities agreed to repatriate the director-principal of the dental college, affiliated to PU, after its students went on strike demanding his resignation. Students of H.S. Judge Institute of Dental Sciences went on strike after a final year student accused the principal of humiliating her in public, directing her to unzip her jacket and to show him the T-shirt she was wearing in front of other students.
17.02.2011 PU politics responsible for UBS mess: Faculty
Says there’s more to it than meets the eye, writes to VC
Contrary to Panjab University’s official stand, the ongoing problem at the University Business School (UBS) does not seem to be just a “teacher-student” dispute. For, students and the faculty today blamed political lobbies in the senate and the syndicate for the ongoing fiasco. A forthright UBS chairman, Dinesh Gupta (who resigned yesterday), created ripples when he said the students were not responsible for his resignation. Sources close to him ascribed it to the ongoing politics in the senate which is divided into two major power lobbies.
Even more significantly, over 75 PU faculty members in a letter addressed to both Gupta and Vice-Chancellor RC Sobti expressed concern over what they termed as “politicisation of teacher-taught relations”. The letter signed by the faculty members from various disciplines went on to criticise the “slipshod treatment meted out to a senior teacher like him”.
“We all know the modus operandi that has been put into operation, of late, to malign some teachers. First, the protest of the students, often managed backstage by political lobbies, is allowed to take monstrous proportions, and then the teachers are intimidated and bullied to surrender to the peace formula worked out by the administration. The so-called peace formula, as usual, disregards the dignity of teachers, their contribution and dedication to the profession with such callous ease that they are left with no choice but to resign,” read the letter.
The teachers asserted that apparently the university authorities failed to learn lessons from the recent crisis at the Dental Institute and Hospital which led to its director-principal Dr Krishan Gauba tendering his resignation and seeking repatriation to the PGI. “Today he (Gupta) has been pinned. Tomorrow it could be somebody else.
The protocols of academics prevent teachers from coming to the streets. But if the vilification and
victimisation of teachers continues, the university would become a battleground. This resignation is a wake-up call for the entire community, and we reiterate that in no way we would let your resignation be accepted by the authorities. It is time for those sitting at the helm of affairs to self-reflect and look beyond their feudal mindsets,” the letter added.
Politics hampering academics: Senator
GK Chatrath, Senator and Syndic member, Dean Law: Unfortunately some senate members do indulge in petty politics which hampers university academics. Fingers are being raised at me for instigating students against Dinesh Gupta. I have represented teachers for the last 44 years and have always upheld their dignity. Allegations are baseless as 25 unmarried girls were sitting on a dharna along with their parents. I was asked to intervene in the matter but I stayed away to maintain propriety since my son-in-law is a member of the faculty in the UBS. If anybody proves my involvement in this fiasco, I will resign. Some senate members are blackmailing the Vice-Chancellor. Instead of slinging mud on the entire senate and syndicate, we should identify them and rectify things.
Ashok Goyal, Senator: Dinesh Gupta is my friend so I will not comment on this issue. Yes, unfortunately some members interfere with university work. But not all senators do so. The university should identify those responsible and deal with them. The VC is surely acting under some pressure and he should divulge these names to end this politics.
VC conspicuous by his absence
Vice-Chancellor RC Sobti was unavailable for comment. University PRO Anil Kapoor said Sobti was out of town and could not be contacted on either his mobile or on mail. A questionnaire mailed to Sobti and even Kapur (who is the university’s spokesperson) failed to elicit a response. An elusive Sobti has been playing difficult-to-get at a time when the university has been witnessing considerable upheaval on the campus, which so far has led to the heads of two professional departments tendering their resignation. Sources said Sobti preferred to attend the convocation of an affiliated college in Ferozpur today and remained unavailable to a delegation of teachers and UBS students who sought to meet him.
16.02.2011 Words used unintentionally hurt MCom girls' sentiments: UBS chairman
The sentiments of the MCom students have been hurt due to some of my words being used unintentionally and resulting in a breach of mutual trust which is sincerely regretted. This misunderstanding is regretted and efforts would be made to restore mutual trust.
This was the four-line letter written by the chairman of University Business School (UBS), Panjab University (PU), Prof Dinesh Gupta, in which he assured UBS's MCom (e-commerce) students that steps would be taken to restore the mutual trust that had been 'breached'. The apology letter was submitted late at night by Prof Gupta to Pam Rajput, chairman of the committee formed to probe the allegations raised by the MCom (e-commerce) girls.
After a meeting that extended to around four hours and this letter on Monday night, the 25 girls sitting on protest outside the V-C's office agreed to call off their stir. They accused Prof Gupta of calling them 'third grade citizens of a third grade nation'. It had been more than a week that these girls had been protesting against Prof Gupta. Two committees had been constituted to look into the matter. While no concrete solution came out of the earlier committee with senior university officials as members, another panel was formed by the Vice-Chancellor with Pam Rajput, Anu Chatrath and other female Senate members, on the demand of these students to have members outside Panjab University. Also, Prof Gupta was overseas for a week as a result of which no solution was possible then.
Students want Gupta to stay put
Even as Dinesh Gupta refused to withdraw his resignation from the position of chairman of PU’s University Business School (UBS), over 50 MBA students went to his house requesting him to rejoin the institute. Expressing their support the students rubbished allegations made by 25 MCom girls who had staged ‘dharna’ (protest sit-in) outside the PU vice-chancellor’s office a few days ago, accusing Gupta of using “derogatory” language in classes. The students claimed the protesting girls were backed by certain “backstage political lobbies” and were “blowing things out of proportion” and “maligning Gupta’s image”. The students also met PU dean of students welfare Naval Kishore, requesting him to urge Gupta to rethink his decision to quit.
Arjun Bajwa, MBA (2nd semester) student: Dinesh Gupta is a thorough professional and a disciplinarian. The protesting students had raised some demands regarding placements and provision of projectors, which were addressed immediately. Following this they began accusing him of misbehaving with them, which is a sheer lie. If he will leave this way then the institute will bear a heavy loss.
Gorki Singh, MBA (2nd semester) student: He (Gupta) always tried to steer the institute away from all kind of politics - be it those of students or of senators, and is now facing the consequences. We agree the university is being taken to ransom by a handful of students. But we can’t continue to lose good teachers just because the varsity chooses to bow to a group of students every now and then.
Monika Kadiyan, MBA, IB student: The girls who are protesting are now hardly ever seen in the department. The university should check their attendance and other academic credentials before giving credence to their allegations. It’s in hands of PU officials to decide how much they want to bow in front of protesters. We are also girls and hundreds like us can certify Dinesh Gupta never misbehaved with us.
Rosy, MCom student: We’ve always stayed away from politics and don’t want to lose such a good teacher because of it. Even we could have staged a ‘dharna’ and sat on a hunger strike in his support, but we aren’t here to create a ruckus. All we want is that Gupta shouldn’t leave as he is not only an excellent departmental head but also innocent.
Community radio crackles to life at Panjab UniversityChandigarh: Using spoken words to develop intimate bonds among students and providing a platform to voice opinions, Panjab University has joined the few universities in northern India that have their own community radio.
Jyotirgamaya is the second community radio in Chandigarh after Vivek High School s Vivek 90.4 FM which has been operating for the last over four years.
We try to address issues like women s welfare, problems of students and health-related queries, radio station manager Kanwaljit Singh said.
Also, career counselling and specialist advice on various issues is aired with the help of interviews and talk shows, he added.
The name of this radio station Jyotirgamaya - from a Sanskrit prayer which says take me from darkness to light - speaks volumes for its purpose.
The new community radio station was formally inaugurated by union Information and Broadcasting minister Ambika Soni at Panjab University s School of Communication Studies (SCS).
SCS operates the radio station at 91.2 frequency and people residing within a six to seven kilometre radius are being educated, informed, entertained and given an opportunity of equal participation by its means.
Students of SCS and other departments of the university, under the guidance of Singh, prepare programmes which are aired throughout the day.
These programmes are aimed at making society a better place to live and to make community members better citizens.
Expressing his enthusiasm, Panjab University Vice Chancellor R.C. Sobti said: Through Jyotirgamaya, we aim to serve as an agent of change by breaking free the social, economic and cultural barriers for awareness generation.
For the students, it is a platform to showcase their talent and reach their community with their messages. Students who have been recording their programmes for the station say that they are really happy with the initiative.
Jyotirgamaya is binding the community consisting of students, teachers and other members in an unmatched way. Nothing else could have made it happen, said Tejbir Kalra, a student of the University Business School (UBS).
Jyotirgamaya has expansion plans on the cards, wherein the frequency is to be made accessible for 22 nearby villages and eight villages adopted by the university.
The concept of community radio came into the picture in the country in 2004 after the successful survival of national and regional radio channels.
UBS students end stir after chairman apologisesChandigarh: Agitating students of the prestigious University Business School (UBS) of the Panjab University ended their 10-day protests on Monday after UBS Chairman Prof. Dinesh Gupta apologised to the students for his alleged misbehaviour with girl students.
Protesting students decided to call-off their protests after a five-hour long marathon negotiation meeting with the university authorities in which it was decided that the UBS Chairman Prof. Gupta will give a written apology for his alleged misbehaviour.
Later talking to reporters, the students expressed hope that the Chairman will live upto the reputation of his post in future. They said Prof. Gupta had committed them of a good behaviour and that he would take up the causes of the students in future.
Notably, the students headed by the girl students of Commerce Department were sitting on a protest outside the Chairman office for past 10 days demanding immediate removal of Prof. Gupta who was alleged of an apathetic attitude towards students causes and misbehaving with them, especially the girl students.
Repeated efforts by the university administration to end the deadlock proved to be futile in the mean time after which the administration invited the students for a direct dialogue with them over the issue.
Delhi students look to Chandigarh for B.Com coursesChandigarh: With cut-off for admissions in Bachelors of Commerce (B.Com) course in leading Delhi colleges touching an unbelievable 99 to 100 percent, many students from the national capital are seeking admission in Chandigarh colleges.
The University Business School, the centralised office of Panjab University for B.Com admissions, has received a good number of applications from Delhi students this year.
We have received scores of applications from New Delhi students for admissions in the B.Com course. Right now it is difficult to give the exact number, but they have surpassed the last year s number. High cut-off in Delhi colleges has prompted the students to move towards Chandigarh, says A.K. Vashisht, coordinator of B.Com admissions of the varsity.
This year the university is conducting online centralised admissions in B.Com for the first time. There are around 4,000 seats in B.Com in 26 colleges in Chandigarh, Ludhiana and Hoshiarpur cities. Around 9,200 applications have been received and the admission process will start on July 1.
We have received applications from students of different states like Punjab, Haryana, (Union Territory of) Chandigarh, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. It is for the first time that PU is conducting online centralized admissions in B.Com. It would add transparency and avoid any scope of discrepancy in the admission process, Vashisht said.
According to varsity officials, the cut-off percentage for B.Com admission in 2010 was around 94 percent and is expected to cross 96 percent this year.
Ashish Sharma, an economics lecturer in a city college said that, B.Com has always remained one of the most sought after courses among students of this region. A couple of year s back, very few students from Delhi were applying here but now the trend has changed.
Close proximity with Chandigarh, good colleges and quality life are attracting Delhi students. This year, competition will be certainly tough, he added.
The admission list will be uploaded on PU s official website June 28. This will include college allotment on the basis of merit and preference of the applicant.
The division of seats between the Union Territory and the general pool is 85 percent and 15 percent respectively.
However, students are both worried and enthusiastic about admissions.
I have secured 95 percent in Class 12. Last year the cut off was 94 (percent) and this year it is expected to go higher. I am still not sure whether I will get admission or not, said Karan Singh, a Chandigarh resident and a B.Com aspirant.
Kokila Jain, a student of Delhi Public School (R.K. Puram), from New Delhi says that though she has applied in three-four colleges in Delhi, she still applied in Chandigarh as I do not want to take any chances .
One of my seniors is already pursuing B.Com in a Chandigarh college. He is full of praise for this place, she said.
UBS issue: MCom students refuse to budge, strike continuesChandigarh: The deadlock between the Panjab University (PU) administration and M Com students, who are on an indefinite strike demanding removal of University Business School (UBS) chairman Prof. Dinesh Gupta, continues with the girl students refusing to budge from their stand.
The students alleged that the UBS chairnan subjected them to severe hostility and also used derogatory language.
The emergency syndicate and senate meeting, which were called on Sunday, to resolve the issue ended without without any conclusion.
Following the meeting, senate member Anu Chatrath and Prof. Pam Rajput were handed over the responsibility to pacify the students but their attempts failed to yield any desired result.
Later, the syndicate appointed Rajput as the chairman of the woman and sexual harassment redressal committee and handed over the responcibity to probe the whole issue and charges leveled against Prof. Gupta.
The students strike is also likey to affect the PU convocation, which is scheduled to be held on Monday (14 February).
Students cry foul over MBA admissions in PUChandigarh: Candidates who appeared for MBA course for the next academic session in University Business School (UBS) of Punjab University have claimed that they the process of admission is not fair and impartial. Students claim that in spite of scoring high marks in the entrance test, they have been denied admission.
Students say that they have been given zero marks in the group discussion test. They also claim that there have been irregularities in preparation of merit list.
UBS has sought PU administration s permission to prepare a revised merit. Right to Information activist Dr R K Singla has also asked for an investigation into the charges.
