Uncertainty over IIT-D Director Shevgaonkar’s resignation


R-K-Shevgaonkar_IITD_540Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi’s director Raghunath K. Shevgaonkar, continues to attend work as the government is yet to take a decision on either accepting or rejecting it. On December 22, Mr. Shevgaonkar had submitted his resignation to the IIT’s Board of Governors.

“In his resignation, he had asked to be relieved on January 1. But he has not requested for any notice period and as things stand, he will continue as director until the President decides or his term expires, whichever is earlier,” an HRD official said.

After his term expires in 2016 or he is relieved, he is expected to be repatriated to IITB.

Currently, IITs in Bhubaneswar and Patna have acting heads and the director of IIT Ropar is on extension as the ministry is yet to appoint new directors for these institutes.
