The report of Chief Secretary E K Bharat Bhushan, recommending action against Mahatma Gandhi University Vice-Chancellor A V George over irregularities in his appointment to the top post, has been sent to the Governor, who is the Chancellor of the University. According to sources, the report has recommended that the appointment of George to the top post be nullified as he had allegedly misrepresented his credentials before the selection panel.

The Chief Secretary’s recommendation came on the basis of a report by Higher Education Secretary K M Abraham pointing out flaws in the selection of George as Vice-Chancellor.

The report said that George had not served for 10 years as Professor in a University - an eligibility criteria for selection to the Vice-Chancellor’s post.

In his bio-data submitted along with the application for selection as VC, George stated that he headed the Department of Environmental Science at Central University, Kasargod.
