The extended four year tenure of Prof P Mannar Jawahar as Vice Chancellor of Anna University ended on Tuesday.

He was accorded a farewell at a function held on the university premises in the evening. However, the impasse over his successor continued with no decision taken yet on the university’s transition from a unitary institution to a pan-TN affiliating technical university.
