HYDERABAD: The Telangana government told the High Court on Wednesday that it would fill the post of vice-chancellor of Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University (JNAFAU) by the end of June this year.

Additional advocate-general J.Ramachandra Rao made the submission before a division bench comprising acting chief justice Dilip B Bhosale and justice P Naveen Rao which was dealing with a PIL filed by the Telangana State Federation of University Teachers Association.

The association sought directions to the state government to initiate the process of making appointments to the post of vice-chancellor, constitute executive council and other statutory bodies while framing statutes and regulations of the varsity.  Continuance of an in-charge person in the VC post was contrary to UGC norms, it argued.

On an earlier occasion, the bench, while making it clear that it would not allow an in-charge person in the VC post for a longer period, directed the government to take steps for appointing a competent person to the post under due process of law.

On Wednesday, the AAG informed the bench that the government had decided to fill the post by the end of June. After recording the AAG statement, the bench disposed of the case.
