Visva Bharati Announces Immediate Resumption of Admission Process Following Interim High Court Decision

Visva Bharati Resumes Admission Process After High Court Order


With the Calcutta High Court on Friday banning protests within 50 meters of the Visva Bharati campus in Santiniketan, the central university announced the immediate resumption of admissions to undergraduate and postgraduate courses, citing the interim order.

The High Court, in the order, ordered that normal functioning be restored at the university without any demonstration within 50 meters of the institution, although a demonstration against the expulsion of three students near the residence of VC entered the seventh day.

In a notification signed by the Acting Registrar, the university said: “As a result of the Interim Order of the Honorable High Court, the undersigned hereby informs that admission to UG and PG courses and all work related to the NAAC will resume with immediate effect. ”

On Tuesday, the first higher education institution declared the temporary suspension of the admissions process, citing the inability of Vice-Chancellor Bidyut Chakraborty to physically supervise the work due to his home confinement following the unrest of the students.

The move was described by the protesting students as an attempt to blackmail their agitation into taking responsibility for the suspension of the admissions process. The central university and its VC on Wednesday asked the High Court to ask the West Bengal police to lift the sit-in.

Vice-Chancellor Chakraborty had not been out of his house for the past week following unrest led by students and some teachers. Two students who were studying economics and a student in the music department were expelled by the central university for alleged misconduct. They were first suspended in January for alleged disorderly conduct and using offensive language against Mr Chakraborty during a protest in Chhatimtala on the university campus.
