Kolkata: Calcutta University’s Interim Vice-Chancellor Sugata Marjit requested on Sunday for the termination of his tenure of service much before it ends.
CU’s VC’s tenure is supposed to end on 14 July 2016. But he has sent a letter to Partha Chatterjee, education minister requesting for the termination.
According to sources, the government had started making arrangements to make his tenure permanent. But he requested the termination much before the government’s planning could fall in place.
According to Sugata, he wanted termination of his service for personal reasons. Search for a new VC for Calcutta University is to begin from Monday. A search committee would be set-up on the same day. After the transfer of former VC Suranjan Das to Jadavpur University, Sugata Marjit was appointed as an interim VC to Calcutta University.
