Citing UGC Regulations – 2010, the university has proposed that the two members in selection board should be nominated by chairman of governing body of minority colleges who will also be chairman of selection board. The V-C would recommend a panel of five people to chairman from which the latter would nominate two members. One will be a subject expert. Besides, chairman will nominate one member from SC/ST community.
