“Since the beginning of the year 2021, Advance Studies Research Board (ASRB) held eight sessions, which approved the research topics of many M.Phil and Ph.D. scholars. This is very important because many students were stuck in this process. Each time we get a few cases, we hold ASRB to clear those cases so that the time of students is not wasted,” he added.

The VC also said that biometric attendance machines would be installed in the varsity to ensure that teachers and other staff perform their duties and remain available for students from 8 am till 4 pm.
