Aurobindo College professor Pramod Kumar has been appointed as the new JNU Registrar to replace Bhupinder Zutshi.

Kumar, an alumni of JNU itself, will take charge on March 21.

“I have been informed of my selection for the post and I will take charge from Monday,” he told PTI.

Zutshi, who was an officiating official on the post, will continue to work as a professor.

JNU which is caught in a row over an event on campus against hanging of Azal Guru and there have been repetitive demands from students and teachers for Zutshi’s removal from Registrar for his alleged role in allowing police on the campus.

Upping their ante against him, the varsity’s teachers association had last week decided to “de-recognize” any orders from him saying that he has completed 62-years of age and hence no official communication should be addressed to him.

The university had last month appointed Chintamani Mohapatra as the new Rector while AP Dimri was appointed the Chief Proctor, after his predecessor Krishan Kumar had resigned from the post.
