Aligarh V-C defends ‘Special Centres'

Aligarh: The Aligarh Muslim University on Monday rejected allegations that the decision to establish ‘special centres' in different parts of the country was illegal and against the letter and spirit of the founding objectives of the institution.

“Under Section 12(2) of the University Act 1981, the Visitor of the University was empowered to set up such Centres,” AMU Vice-Chancellor P.K. Abdul Azis said.

The University's decision has been opposed by a number of members of different governing bodies of the University and also the AMU Old Boys' Association.

“The restriction of 25 km from the University campus for establishing such centres existed in the earlier Acts of the University. The present Act of 1981 did not include any such restriction ,” Mr. Azis said while addressing a meeting of staff and students of the University here.

The decision to establish these centres had been sanctioned by all the governing bodies of the University including the University Court and Executive Council, he added.

Kaukab Hameed, Secretary of AMU Old Boys' Association, said, “The move would erode the character of the University and adversely affect its academic standards.”

A national convention of University's alumni is being held here on June 19 on the issue. -- PTI
