U’khand varsity prof barred from rejoining despite HC ruling

  • | Friday | 22nd September, 2023

Haridwar: Professor Mohan Chandra Balodi, a faculty member in the education department at Uttarakhand Sanskrit University in Haridwar, continues to face hurdles in rejoining the university, despite a high court order that stayed the termination of his employment. Balodi, who had been appointed to his position on August 5, 2010, along with 11 other teachers, saw his appointment nullified by the university on April 11, 2018, following an inquiry into alleged irregularities in the hiring process. He contested the universitys decision in the high court, and in December 2018, the court ruled in his favour, ordering his reinstatement with certain conditions. However, this reinstatement was subsequently revoked, leading to his removal from service in June 2022. In response, Balodi initiated legal proceedings against the university.The HC, in its order dated August 29, 2023, said, "Prima facie, it appears to us that the impugned order is unreasoned, and it is not explained from the record as to why the reinstatement order was withdrawn unceremoniously... The respondents (the university vice-chancellor and registrar) are directed to continue to pay the salary to the petitioner that he was receiving before the withdrawal of his reinstatement order."
