Wing Cdr PJP Singh Waraich (Retd.) does not meet the requisite qualifications of eligibility for the post of Registrar at NIPER, Mohali. Officiating Director made his selection deliberately though officiating Director was not competent authority to approve the appointment of registrar. This act of officiating Director amounts to ‘denial of opportunity’ to genuinely deserving candidates besides leading to ‘nepotism’.
For the post of the registrar many candidates, who were qualifying the required criteria applied, including acting registrar of NIPER. It is pertinent to mention that officiating director did not call the acting registrar, NIPER for the interview. The comparison of Dr. Shyam Narayan Dy. Registrar IIT Roorkee who attended the interview with PJP Singh Waraich is as under
Registrar: Post -01: (unreserved): A person who shall be responsible for administration of the Institute on the policy guidelines set up by the Director and the Board of Governors. The Registrar is expected to be a person with positive attitude, capable of problem solving and with a proven ability to coordinate the work of various wings such as Administration, Finance & Accounts, Examination, Engineering and Stores & Purchase.
