The incumbent vice chancellor prof A K Ghosh had completed his tenure couple of months ago but he was asked to continue until new appointment is made. During the tenure of Prof Ghosh, Tripura University hit headlines in media because of wrong reasons and Tripura assembly had to unanimously passed resolution seeking investigation against him on academic and administrative corruption.

The university administration today started refreshing the VC’s chamber and arrangement has been made to welcome new VC.
University sources said prof Dharurkar is expected to join next week.
