K K Dhiman, principal of the Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital (HMCH), Sector 26, has stressed that the career of its current students is not at stake at all, as the affiliation issue only concerns future admissions.
The students had expressed that they were upset with regard to the decision of the Panjab University (PU) Syndicate of sending the college a disaffiliation notice.
The Syndicate had decided to issue the disaffiliation notice to the college after an inspection committee had strongly recommended that the affiliation to the college should be suspended till the college acquires a regular faculty as per the Central Council of Homeopathy (CCH) norms.
Dhiman said that the students gave him an application on May 4 seeking a meeting with him and the management on the same day. "I listened to their problems related to affiliation and after the meeting they insisted on having a meeting with the management," he added .
Accordingly a meeting was arranged between the students and the management on May 7.
The principal stressed that in this meeting, he had had a detailed discussion relating to the handing over of the college to the UT Administration, grant in aid issues and affiliation issues. The secretary of the college governing body also offered to visit any official for the benefit of the students.
It was duly conveyed to the students that all vacant teaching posts have been advertised for and a letter has been written to the Panjab University for selection panel so that interviews can be held immediately.
"The process of filling up of teaching posts will take some time. The management is very much concerned about the issue of the affiliation and taking all the precautionary steps as well as requisite action with the university," said Dhiman.
