Old mistakes in new PhD guide list

Among the minor errors, two incumbent deans were proven as operating with the previous establishments. Currently, Dean of Humanities Pramod Sharma is head of NU’s Hindi Department whilst Dean of Science GS Khadekar is head of NU’s Mathematics Department. Similarly, several professors who have both long retired or moved to every other institute are proven as operating with their earlier faculty/division and duplication of names inside the same topic are different issues within the list.

As per norms, the information must be from where of research to be able to sign up below him/her. The norm has left several eligible applicants with out guides whilst the latter were not able to sign up scholars below them.

The out of date data had resulted in several aspirants losing a 12 months on the lookout for information or research centre ultimate 12 months.
