According to sources, the reply runs into about 100 pages in which the VC has completely defended his actions. “We have received the reply from the VC but have not examined it yet,” said the Education Secretary SN Mohanty while refusing to divulge the details.

Of the several allegations, one of them is the diversion of OBC funds amounting to rupees 172 crores, which were used to purchase laptops for the students of FYUP batch of 2013. The Vice Chancellor has defended this allegation and sent documents to prove his claim. The Delhi University Teacher’s Association has come heavily over the alleged reports that the VC has defended his actions. DUTA in its official statement stated, “His nonchalant refusal to accept guilt in the matters related to the unauthorised restructuring of FYUP courses, the diversion of crores of rupees from the earmarked OBC expansion grant among other allegations shows that he has scant regard for the rule of law and norms of governance in the public institutions”.

As for the allegation of why was the Bachelor’s in Technology course (B.Tech.) introduced without the approval of All India Council for Technical Education, the VC has replied that AICTE approval was not needed for colleges in which the course was introduced.

After examining the letter, the ministry will send a report to the President of India, who is also a visitor to the University to take further action on the Vice-Chancellor, a decision that might remove him or maintain the status quo.
