MUMBAI: The state government has decided to appoint VN Magare, principal, Kirti College in Dadar as acting registrar of the University of Mumbai (MU), which is struggling to declare results of the examinations held in the first half of the year.
The post of the registrar, who is the administrative head of the varsity, fell vacant on Monday after the current registrar, MA Khan, left the varsity to assume his new role as the chief executive officer (CEO) of Haj Committee of India (HCI). Magare will hold the position for three months, or until the varsity appoints a new registrar during this period.
"After vice-chancellor, registrar is the most important position at a university. We will soon issue a resolution on the appointment of the new registrar," said an official from higher and technical education department.
