Kolkata: Sugata Marjit, a well known and respectable Academician is likely to sit on the hot seat of the Vice Chancellor of Calcutta University. He will be taking the reigns of the Calcutta University from Suranjan Das, who is presently the VC of the Calcutta University. It is heard that after Suranjan Das was though of taking the charge of Jadavpur University from Abhijit Chatterjee, the post of the CU VC would have been laid vacant. But after the personal interference and request from the West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee herself, Sugata Marjit has given his green signal on taking up the responsibility of the CU Vice Chancellor. The move was confirmed on SAturday by recognised sources. The State Government feels that the standard of CU will surely rise after Marjit takes charge.
