Chandigarh: High court seeks response from Center to make Panjab University a central university

Speaker Gyan Chand Gupta has got a lot of hope due to the order of the High Court. The next hearing will be on August 30. The Speaker has thanked the High Court.

The Punjab-Haryana High Court has sought a response from the Central Government to make Panjab University (PU) a Central University (CU). On May 19, the High Court has issued orders in this regard. Speaker Gyan Chand Gupta, who is fighting for the rights of Haryana in Panjab University, has expressed happiness over this order of the Punjab and Haryana High Court. The Union Home Ministry and the Education Ministry will have to reply in the High Court before the next hearing on August 30, 2022.

Gupta said that there has been a long debate in the High Court regarding the authority of Panjab University in Dr. Sangeeta Bhalla Vs State of Punjab and others. After the hearing, the High Court said that the Panjab University is a specially controlled, regulated and governed University of the Union Territory of Chandigarh. The character of the University as an inter-state body has already been lost. It cannot be made an inter-state body merely by the participation of Chandigarh.

The university should be reformed to ensure a conducive academic environment. The court has also emphasized on ensuring excellence in education and research. Apart from this, it has been said in its instructions to redress the grievances of the teachers working in the university and its affiliated colleges. The court has observed that to remove all ambiguities and confusion prevailing in all areas relating to the affairs of the University, it has to be considered for conversion as a Central University.

Gupta said, they have been demanding for a long time that the students studying in colleges of neighboring districts of Haryana including Panchkula in PU should get quota in admission on the lines of Punjab. On May 6, he has raised this issue with the Vice President and Vice Chancellor of Panjab University M. Venkaiah Naidu in Chandigarh.

He says that by linking the colleges of Panchkula district with this university, children will be able to get admission under 85 percent quota. Even at the time of Haryana-Punjab bifurcation, there was a provision to give 40:60 share to both the states in the university, so colleges of Ambala and Yamunanagar which are within 100 km radius should also be considered for linking with the university.
