After five years, the Panjab University (PU) got a regular Controller of Examination (CoE). Dr Parvinder Singh. Singh took charge as the CoE on Thursday.
An alumnus of the PU Chemistry Department, Singh said while talking to the Chandigarh Newline, "It is my privilege to hold such a position of my alma mater. It was a great feeling when I took charge, as all my teachers from the Chemistry department came to wish me for my new endeavour."
When asked about his priorities, he said that all student-related issues will top his list of to-do things. "I will try to streamline the process, so that roll number are issued to students on time. May be after some time we will be able to evolve some mechanism," Singh said.
He also said that he had asked for a feedback for all the examination related issues from registrar Prof A K Bhandari. "Once I get a report, I will be able to issue some instructions," he added.
After various debates and discussions, his name was approved for the post at the recently held Senate meeting. Though he had joined as the Deputy DPI (colleges and planning), but was relieved of that post on Wednesday, and on Thursday he joined as the CoE.
