Tripura University, the lone central university in the state, is facing serious crisis as a number of key administrative posts including the post of vice-chancellor and registrar are lying vacant.
The post of vice chancellor has remained vacant after vice-chancellor Vijaykumar Laxmikantrao Dharurkar was removed in September on graft charge.
Following Dharurkar’s removal, Sangram Sinha, a faculty member of Botany department, was appointed as the acting VC.
But now Sinha has sought voluntary retirement on health grounds.
“Sinha in a letter to the authorities last week sought voluntary retirement on health grounds. He was due to retire in December next year,” sources said.
While the post of registrar has been lying vacant for three years, the post of director of college development council is lying vacant for two years.
The post of controller of examinations has been lying vacant for six months.
Similarly, finance officer Uttam Kumar Das is going to retire in the next two months.
An official of the university said the junior officials are managing the routine works of the university administration but they are unable to take any policy decisions.
