Nilamber Pitamber University(NPU) celebrated its 11th Establishment Day in the rented building of the Palamu Zila Parishad like all the previous ten such celebrations and each time hoping that the NPU will move into its own building, which stands elusive since the year of its inception 2009.
Vice chancellor of NPU S N Singh was the Chief Guest and the celebration was a low key affair.
Hopes were expressed by the speakers on this occasion that next year 2021 this university will celebrate it in its own building which many took with a pinch of salt.
The new man in this celebration was Dean Medicine Dr JR Prasad principal of the newly opened Palamu medical college.
It was VC Singh who in his 12 minute speech said, “The choice is clear transform or perish. There is nothing more than this.”
He spoke about the challenges and the tasks but he put his weight for the tasks and did not make any parade of problems that stare in the face of the university which is from crunch of teachers to fund as fund crunch has put on hold payment of gratuity and leave encashment to many retired teachers and non teaching about which VC assured that in the coming months these payments will be made.
University sources said right from VC to financial advisor to dean social welfare exit is the time as VC is to complete his tenure of 3 years in a few months time while financial advisor’s tenure too is going to be over and DSW is to get his superannuation.
