Any officiating Director cannot hold the office for more than one year, as per “Not exceeding a total period of one year” provision of NIPER STATUTES.
Current officiating director started office on 01.01.2010 thus his term was over on 01.01 2011. After that he is clinging to the chair illegally.
Though the present officiating director failed to get any order/direction supporting his current status from BOG/Visitor he managed to get the following six laurels for NIPER since April 2011 few more are in pipe line.
